Twin tracks into the future
Our dual study programmes: as diverse as our apprenticeships and, most importantly, just as practical.
The middle way is the fastest: Hauni’s dual study programmes combine a bachelor’s degree with valuable practical experience in the company. Offering you the perfect conditions to launch your professional career. To create the best possible curriculum, we work together with renowned universities, such as TU Hamburg-Harburg, HAW Hamburg and FH Nordakademie. Our tip: do some research and apply to Hauni!
The dual study course provides us with the basic training on machines required to achieve a better understanding of the theory we are taught at the HAW. Later on, we are given the opportunity to put our knowledge into practice by working on projects in various departments.

Your first job will probably not be your last. But it will shape you like no other. We are well aware of this responsibility and will give you particular attention.
Technical qualifications are important, but not everything. You are more than a small wheel in a large machine so we put a special emphasis on the development of your personality.
Working respectfully with and for each other is the ideal basis for ensuring good cooperation and outstanding performance. Always remember that you, too, shape our corporate culture.
With us you can learn from over 100 training officers who will be there for you at any time and happy to answer your questions.
To develop your skills to the maximum, you need at least two things above all: freedom and recognition. With us you get both.
We would like to be your point of contact whatever your questions. That’s why our door is always open and we are pleased to take time for you.
We are successful because we are demanding. But no one demands that you know everything. We just want you to be curious and eager to learn.
We offer you a supportive learning environment where you will be encouraged and challenged. Mistakes are part of the learning process – so when you make them, learn from them.
Digitization is making the labour market more exciting than ever before. We will prepare you for the workplace of tomorrow – with targeted training courses and opportunities to make your own decisions.
Your potential is much more important to us than your school exam grades or background. Take your chance and send us your application so we can get to know each other.
We offer apprenticeships and dual study programmes for the following professions:
• Mechatronics technician
• Industrial mechanic
• Cutting machine operator
• Technical product designer
• Wholesale and foreign trade clerk specializing in foreign trade
• Industrial clerk
• Bachelor of science in business informatics
• Bachelor of science in industrial engineering
• Bachelor of science in mechanical engineering
• Bachelor of science in electrical engineering and information technology
First, we need the usual: so please upload your completed application – including your last two school reports and all your internship certificates/assessments – to our online job market. Our instructors will then look at your documents and, if appropriate, invite you to our candidate selection day. We will take a whole day to get to know you and the other candidates and do some tests. If we think we could have a long-term future together, we will call you shortly after the selection day. And hope that you share this feeling.
We always start searching for apprentices and candidates for dual study programmes one year in advance. We advertise training places from 1 July one year before the courses start – in other words, ideally you should apply as soon as possible!
We take on around 40 trainees every year. This includes students on the dual study programmes we offer.
• Year 1 of training course € 1,047
• Year 2 of training course € 1,079
• Year 3 of training course € 1,110
• Year 4 of training course € 1,141
It depends on the profession you want to learn. Commercial professions require at least a good school ESA (German certificate of secondary education taken at 15 years of age, or equivalent) while the technical and commercial professions require at least a good MSA (German certificate of secondary education taken at 16 years of age, or equivalent). If you are interested in a dual study programme, you will need to have at least a higher school leaving certificate (e.g. A-Level or vocational baccalaureate diploma taken at 18 years of age).
Every profession has its own instructor. This person will be your first point of contact for all matters relating to your training and the planning of your placements in the company. You will be supervised in the department where you are working by one of our 120 training officers.
We believe it is always extremely important for there to be feedback in both directions. But apart from that, you will receive regular feedback from your instructor. This will take place both during and after your placement in a department so you will always have the opportunity to develop your abilities.
Our trainees receive an allowance for a HVV-Proficard for use on local public transport services. You will also be entitled to holiday and Christmas bonuses – even during your training. In addition, we will provide protective footwear or industrial clothing, if required. If necessary, we also provide laptops to many of our trainees and students on dual study programmes.
An internship abroad can really turbo charge your training, that’s why we help you to do this in a variety of ways. But, as you can imagine, it is very important to us that it is relevant – both technically and in terms of content – to your apprenticeship or degree.
100%, to be precise. At the moment, we have a collectively agreed commitment to trainees. This means that we will offer you a contract with our company for at least 12 months after you successfully complete your training.
There are all kinds of ways to develop your abilities at Hauni. We help you to improve your language skills or learn a completely new language – or participate in seminars to develop your personality. In addition, we award scholarships each year. You can apply for these in order to supplement your apprenticeship with a dual study programme. However, we have no such thing as a typical career path: you will find former apprentices and graduates of dual study programmes at almost every level of the company – from mechanics to Members of the Executive Board. So your career path primarily depends on one person: you.
