Industrial Mechanic for Mechanical and Plant Engineering

If you train as an industrial mechanic for mechanical and plant engineering at MEYER WERFT, your apprenticeship will focus on the machinery at the heart of the ship. Our industrial mechanics are familiar with all sorts of machinery – from diesel engines to gas turbines. They commission, repair, deliver and test machines, plants and systems – on board and on assembly sites. They often work with other employees and our (international) customers, so they also need good English skills.

  • You’re interested in working with tools and machinery

  • You demonstrate technical understanding and spatial intelligence
  • You’re physically fit and resilient
