Studying at KRIWAN

Practical application of knowledge

At KRIWAN, we know: You do not become a specialist overnight. This applies to companies as well as employees.

Which is why we place emphasis on the promotion of qualified junior employees on to technical study programs. KRIWAN products are sophisticated – and we need employees who can meet these demands.

Working hand in hand

KRIWAN works closely together with regional universities and colleges. As part of cooperative courses at the Reinhold-Würth university campus in Künzelsau, Germany, we offer a combination of company-based vocational training and study. With the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University Mosbach, we provide Bachelor of Engineering training.

And naturally, students also can get to know KRIWAN during practical placements and internship semesters, or to work and carry out research at our company for their dissertation, bachelor's thesis or master's thesis.

Cooperative study programmes

Cooperative study courses are the combination of a course of study with in-company vocational training. Thanks to the cooperation between KRIWAN and the Reinhold-Würth-Hochschule in Künzelsau, training and studies are completed in just under 5 years and lead to a double qualification, i.e. a degree in a state-recognised company training occupation (IHK) on the one hand and a Bachelor of Science (B. sc.) or Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.) university degree on the other.

The professional chances of an applicant with such a solid basic education are also excellent in the long term. Graduates will find an interesting field of activity in research and development and in technical sales.

The advantages:

  • The training period is shortened by more than one year compared to vocational training plus subsequent studies, without any loss of quality in the transfer of theoretical knowledge. This leads to a double qualification within a short time (< 5 years).
  • Regular remuneration over the entire training and study period
  • Theory and practice in combination
  • Technical cooperation with the university
  • Preliminary internships and practical semesters in the partner company
  • Already during your training and studies you will get to know the entire company as well as the future workplace and will be fully integrated after completing your training.
  • Attractive jobs
  • Eligibility for the Master's programme


Admission requirement for the cooperative study programme is the university or technical college entrance qualification


  • Electronics Technician for Devices and Systems/Bachelor of Science (B. sc.) Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial clerk or electronics technician for devices and systems/Bachelor of Engineering (B. eng.) Industrial Engineering and Management

Dual study programmes

Studying at the Cooperative State University: the alternative to university studies for committed high school graduates who have a distinct logical-analytical ability to think, are highly motivated and have a practice-oriented way of thinking. Further requirements are a general or subject-related university entrance qualification with very good grades, also in at least one foreign language.

The course of study begins in October each year with a preceding introductory internship of at least 4 weeks and lasts 3 years. The training takes place in the dual system in cooperation with the Duale Hochschule Mosbach.


Bachelor of Engineering (DH)

Change training

The six semesters are divided into theoretical and practical training phases of twelve weeks each (dual system). The course is preceded by a three-month internship in a company.

Electrical engineering course of study

In addition to general electrical engineering, basic mathematical and scientific knowledge and working methods are taught in the basic studies. After the assistant's examination, the specialisation in automation technology is offered. Special training focuses on the conversion of physical quantities into electrical signals, signal processing and control engineering. The imparting of knowledge and process engineering of computer science plays an essential role for this field of activity. Due to the close connection between the training at the Duale Hochschule and the training companies, a compact, scientific and practice-oriented course of studies is achieved.

Industrial Engineering and Management course of studies

The Bachelor of Engineering (BA) in Industrial Engineering and Management with focus on International Technical Sales Management is able to translate scientific findings into applications of current demand. His professional competence includes basic knowledge of technical and business management processes. This enables him to solve technical and economic problems. After completing this dual course of study, he can be immediately employed in the areas of technical sales and purchasing, product management, marketing, project management, maintenance and service. Through systematic practical work experience, he also has a high degree of social and methodological competence.

Internships and theses

An internship in electrical engineering or industrial engineering and management gives you and us the opportunity to get to know each other and prepare for a later career start at KRIWAN.

We also offer you the opportunity to get to know the company and its specialist topics in the context of a diploma, bachelor or master thesis.
