Training for the future


Exciting career fields in the sign of e-mobility, digitalization  and automation. 

  • Training opportunities for school leavers in technical, commercial and IT professions 
  • Munich location as future lead plant for e-mobility 
  • Extensive retraining and continuing education programs for employees in the course of transformation

The transformation in the commercial vehicle industry is also reflected in MAN Truck & Bus's training program. School-leavers experience and help shape this transformation in their vocational training or dual study program. A large number of young people took advantage of the "Training Day" at the MAN Truck & Bus plant in Munich on Saturday to find out about vocational training together with their parents. This was particularly exciting this year, as MAN's main plant in Munich Allach is in the midst of a major development: Series production of electric trucks will start here in 2024. Preparations for this are in full swing. 

"We are in the midst of a major transformation. Trainees are therefore experiencing an exciting time at MAN and can play an active role in shaping this change," said MAN Chief Human Resources Officer and Labor Director Arne Puls during his tour of the MAN training center. "The Munich site is changing, it is becoming the lead plant for electromobility in the MAN Group. And for this we need young, committed apprentices." 

Digitalization and automation in the world of transportation are also leading to new business areas and an expanded product range. This is why MAN is already offering new apprenticeships such as "electronics technician in automation technology," "management assistant in digitalization management," and "IT specialist in data and process analysis." Many of the existing MAN workforce at the Munich plant has also long been undergoing retraining or further qualification. By 2024, for example, around 1,000 employees from the Munich plant will have been trained in the use of high-voltage technology, and qualification programs have also been launched for customer service employees. 

The range of apprenticeships on offer at MAN's Munich site also continues to include traditional professions such as automotive mechatronics technician, production mechanic, mechatronics technician, industrial mechanic, vehicle painter, bodywork and vehicle construction mechanic and IT specialist in application development. In cooperation with the “Hochschule Dual Bayern” (University of Applied Sciences) and the “Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg”, school-leavers can take advantage of combined study and training opportunities in electrical engineering and information technology, digital business management, industrial engineering and business informatics. 

In addition to discussions with apprentices and their trainers, visitors were treated to a product show, rides on the test track, and a lunchtime visit from former FC Bayern professional soccer player Diego Contento.
