The Dürr Graduate Program

The 16-month Dürr Graduate Program offers a full overview of the entire Dürr Group. This cross-departmental training program is typically split between four stations at different locations in Germany and abroad. It includes a comprehensive training program, at least one stay abroad (three to five month), and personal mentoring by a manager. Trainees in the Dürr Graduate Program have an unlimited contract from the beginning. At the end of the program we define the target position together. 
The program begins every October. Applications will be accepted as through February/March, and applicants will be selected in June or July. To qualify, you need good grades, some initial practical experience and experience abroad, excellent English and German skills, a passion for technology and an interest in international collaboration. We’ll start with a web interview. If that goes well, you’ll be invited to a recruitment day.
