Taking a look back at the past training period.
Trainees in the Technical Section work on exciting instrumentation projects and learn to use state-of-the-art equipment.
In cooperation with the Potsdam Chamber of Trade, Oskar Sauerbrey is an ambassador for apprenticeships. In this role, he visits schools to encourage students to discover their individual interests and talents. He gives an insight into his own training as a precision mechanic at the institute and tries to share his enthusiasm for the craft.
