Paula Klöckner, dual study programme - B.Sc. Business Administration

For me, the dual study programme at Zschimmer & Schwarz is a great opportunity to develop myself further in many different ways. In a pleasant working environment, I have the opportunity to see the theoretical knowledge being put into practice and to apply it myself.
In apprentice project teams we can be proactive and actively participate in the company's activities. For example, at training fairs we are given full responsibility for organisation and implementation.


Marcel Kittsteiner, dual study programme – B.Sc. Process Engineering

I got to know Zschimmer & Schwarz during a student internship, and immediately liked the way employees in the company treated each other fairly and respectfully. The dual study programme is now enabling me to simultaneously complete both my degree and an apprenticeship as a chemical technician. By switching between different areas, I also gain a comprehensive overview of the operational processes. I especially like the variety between theory and practice, and the great support given by the instructors.
