In September 2020, we will start our second year of the Apprenticeship Program at the Michigan Headquarters. Currently we are searching for 4 motivated students who are interested in Mechatronics. The Apprenticeship Program is based on the German Model and is supported by the MAT2 Program. For students who haven’t yet decided, we are offering facility tours and internships in advance.

At SW, everyone takes responsibility and pride in our successful programs. Those who start a career at SW North America tend to stay with our team long-term because we offer more than just a job. ‘Technology People’ are bound by a shared sense of being among the best and working together on a common endeavor.

Reach out to us today and take the first step into a career with a lot of opportunities!  


What you should know:

It requires 3 years training to become a Mechatronics Technician. You will study at Henry Ford College and have hands-on training on our shop floor in New Hudson, Michigan. After the 3 year program, we ask that you stay with us for a minimum of 2 years. Your will improve your knowledge from the first year of training via training assignments in various specialist departments. 


Global Student Exchange Program:

We belive that building a team doesent stop in one department or country. We build a global team - a family. That's why you will get the chance during your 3 years of apprentice program, to go to our Headquartes in Germany. You will get to know the culture, the company, the people and gain even more technical knowlege . While rotating though different departments during the week, adventures weekends are scheduled for you and your peers. In exchange, SW NA will have every year, 4-5 German apprentice students  for 4-6 weeks, who want to improve their english, get to know the american culture and YOU!
