Technical product designer specialising in machine and plant design

In order for the individual components of our systems to be manufactured and assembled in production with dimensional accuracy, we require exact technical drawings. During your training as a technical product designer, you will learn to create these on the computer with the help of so-called CAD programs. CAD means nothing else than Computer Aided Design, i.e. the design of detailed 3D models on the computer. In the field of machine and plant design, you design components for machine tools. You select materials and manufacturing techniques and also keep an eye on costs and technical requirements. You use simulations and tests to check whether your designs can be implemented in practice. The profession is particularly suitable for those who aspire to a technical profession, which at the same time combines the advantages of an office profession.
