Gaining practical experience
As a medium-sized company, we offer optimal opportunities to gain practical experience. To this end, interested parties can complete general internships in mechanical engineering as well as project-related assignments as part of a course of study.

General internships
Through a general internship at OPITZ, first impressions of the processes in a mechanical engineering company can be conveyed in a targeted manner. As a medium-sized company we are able to offer individual support, both for commercial and technical internships. A general internship is therefore suitable for a professional pre-selection through a school internship as well as for gaining practical experience during studies.

Project-related internships
As an innovative thinking company we are constantly striving to improve our plants and products and to develop them further technically. Within the framework of a project-related internship, students have the opportunity (for example in the form of a project or final thesis) to implement solutions to concrete tasks constructively and mechanically. Our supervision helps to develop a marketable solution that will find practical application in our plants. Applicants should have a basic mechanical education, experience with the programs Inventor and/or AutoCAD and constructive experience.
If you are interested, we will be happy to provide you with detailed information about the development projects to be worked on at OPITZ - simply Contact us.
