Dual Studies

A true combination of theory and practice – and an unlimited set of opportunities.

Putting the knowledge you’ve gained to use right away while getting paid to do so: that’s the dream for many university students. And one that can be fulfilled by undertaking a dual study program (“Duales Studium”) at ElringKlinger. Take the opportunity to combine the theoretical knowledge you gain at university with practical experience of work in a real-life business. By doing so, you’ll be guaranteed a successful and secure start to your career.

A true combination of theory and practice – and an unlimited set of opportunities.

We’re convinced of the virtues of this training model and have had nothing but positive experiences of it so far. The fact that almost all of our students stick with us after they’ve completed their degrees is a testament to our attractiveness as an employer. 

The Baden-Württemberg “Dual Study” system has been a uniquely successful model of its kind for 40 years. And its combination of academic study with commercial placements has also won high acclaim internationally. Students on the scheme spend approximately three months in alternating study and work placements.

Thanks to ElringKlinger’s presence in 45 locations worldwide, they also get to spend some of their on-the-job placements in other countries, including China, the United States, India and Canada. For a limited period you’ll get first-hand experience of the culture of another country. That’s something that can’t be said about every company. You can read more about these options in our Careers’ Blog and our Instagram page.

You can also opt for a University of Reutlingen degree program, including workplace training.
