Apprentice/Dual studies. Production, Plastic and Rubber Techniques in Hamburg, Germany

I am a student of composites in dual study course in cooperation with Airbus Operations GmbH. Airbus emphasises the connection of theoretical and practical work.

Therefore I am directly integrated in the production where I learn the industrial skills to become a well trained worker for plastic and rubber techniques. The theory is taught to me at the Private University of Applied Science in Stade by professors with different industrial backgrounds. I have just started my fourth semester out of eight in university where I join subjects like construction of sandwich materials or manufacturing technique. My practical knowledge helps me a lot to understand the theory.

"Flying is an old dream of the mankind" - These were my first words to introduce myself in my job interview for the dual study course. Airbus is fulfilling this dream with its airplanes. Many people from different countries take part in designing and producing this fascinating product.

Since the beginning of my studies in 2008 I have met a lot of people who have been demanding but also have supported me in such a way that I have been able to manage different tasks in the production by myself. I am still very happy with my decision to apply for Airbus because of all these facts.
