High School Students

You don’t want to continue learning at just any old company? Then come to Manz and begin the program that is right for you and, in doing so, lay the foundation for a successful career.

Will you soon be successfully completing high school and already know what you want to do? And on top of that, you are absolutely sure that Manz is the right fit and that you want to launch your career here?

Find the program that is right for you! We offer a number of varied vocational training programs, interesting combined vocational training and degree Programs (DHBW), and exciting activities that will make your time at Manz truly special.


A vocational training program or combined vocational training and degree program at Manz is everything but boring and repetitive. The following is an overview of all the things you can experience at Manz!

Introduction Week

With the introduction week we want to give you a pleasant start. There will be not only training, workshops, company tours and games during that week. A trainee rally will be held by the trainees who have been working at Manz for some time. Here you have the chance to get to know each other better in different Manz-specific or playful tasks and to become a team.


In order to build a strong team spirit and a sense of togetherness, Manz offers a number of different shared activities.
Each summer, all the vocational trainees, DHBW students, and interns go on an excursion together such as climbing at a high ropes course or going on a canoe trip.

Health Day

Once a year, a health day takes place to ensure that you get fit and healthy through your day-to-day work. Under the supervision of an instructor, you will deal with topics related to health, fitness, and sports. In addition, nutrition and addictions are also discussed. To ensure that the day is fun for all those involved, every now and then the entire group does practical exercises to keep the mood light. The goal of these exercises is to maintain body control in various situations. Whether it is a relay race with “drunk goggles,” relaxation exercises for a long workday, or a slackline course on Manz AG’s premises, the exercises are all fun and contribute to the group’s sense of togetherness.

Training Courses

Also professional development during the apprenticeship is important to us. You therefore receive additional specialist trainings, such as:

  • Changes to Customs and Export Business
  • Welding
  • CNC Programming
  • Business English

Since we also value your personal development, we offer seminars in the fields of communication, rhetoric or economic thinking and acting. Even if it's the hot phase of your education, we will not leave you alone. For your optimal preparation you have the opportunity to participate in exam preparation courses offered by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

Parents’ Night

To keep your parents up to date about your training, we offer once a year a parent's night. Your parents should get to know the training managers and the company as well as ask questions. As a special highlight, the trainees present the projects they worked on and the experience they gathered over the previous year such as during their trips abroad.

Cooperation / Student Internship

Student Internship

You have envisioned your future, but are you still unsure what you want to do after school or whether desired job will be fun? Then come to Manz and find it out yourself as part of a student internship. Here you can get a taste of different professions and gain a lot of experiences that will make your choice easier.

Girls' Day

Are you a girl and are you interested in a "typical male profession" in IT, craft, science and technology? Then come to Girls' Day at Manz and find out more about our technical apprenticeships. Every year we open our doors for girls from the 5th grade onwards from the region.


Cooperation with the Reutlingen Chamber of Industry and Commerce: economy goes to school

Within the framework of the campaign "Economy goes to school" of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Reutlingen there is an educational partnership between Manz and Realschule Pliezhausen. The goal is to help students make their career choices. Manz offers various cooperation projects such as a career choice workshop and a technology working group for grades 8 and 9. In doing so, you will have the opportunity to gain initial practical experience and to try out commercial and technical apprenticeships.

Cooperation with Reutlingen University: industrial partnerships for mechatronics, mechanical engineering and international project engineering

Together with other companies from the region, Manz participates in industrial partnerships in the fields of mechatronics, mechanical engineering and international project engineering at Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences. An essential part of these partnerships is the support of subject-specific scholarships. In addition to the financial support, the students make valuable contacts in the companies, get regular offers of excursions and have the opportunity to work on current projects in the partner companies.
In addition, industry partnership forums take place annually at the University of Reutlingen, where Manz can present itself as a company and students can inform themselves about possible internships, working student jobs or even find the topics for a thesis.

We are looking forward to your inquiry!
