Studying with HELLER

Studying with work experience to optimise future opportunities

Students of technical subjects have a host of opportunities at HELLER: In addition to a dual programme in cooperation with the DHBW Stuttgart and a course with an additional technician training module, preliminary work experience for certain courses, specialised placements and practice-based semesters, as well as final Bachelor and Master theses are all possible in a company environment. Enthusiastic student trainees are also very welcome at HELLER.

The practical element prepares the students very well for their later professional life. In addition, this collaboration gives both you and us the opportunity to get to know one another better and the chance to sound each other out for a job at a later stage. We aim to take on students under a permanent employment relationship once they have successfully completed their course.
