Mechatronics Engineer for Refrigeration Engineering

Do you love extremes? Whether bitter cold or sizzling heat –- you become a climate specialist when training to become a mechatronics engineer for refrigeration technology.

Wherever refrigerating, heat, and climate pumps are in operation, the mechatronics engineer is in demand. He or she is responsible for the assembly, conversion, and servicing of refrigerating and air-conditioning systems and installations, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, or climate simulation plants.

In addition to the installation of plant parts, this includes the performance of insulation, anti-corrosion, and fire protection measures. Saving energy is also an important aspect of refrigeration engineering. The mechatronics engineer for refrigeration engineering thus deals with the constant technical improvement of refrigerating systems so that they consume as little energy as possible while working in an environmentally sound manner and causing low costs.

At Weiss Technik, mechatronics engineers for refrigeration engineering work in the serial and individual production of air-conditioning and refrigerating systems and in the special construction of environmental installation plants. In environmental installation plants, all kinds of products like batteries, entire cars, navigation devices, or solar modules are exposed to extreme climate conditions to test whether they work perfectly even in case of cold, heat, and moisture. The mechatronics engineer for refrigeration engineering not only manufacturers these plants, but is also responsible for installing, commissioning, and servicing these frequently tailored plants on customer premises.

We offer you the following during training:

  • Training as a mechatronics engineer for refrigeration engineering comprises the areas of both electronics and mechanical systems
  • You will learn how to process materials with hand tools, lathes, and milling machines
  • We will teach you the basics of electrical engineering: structure of simple installation circuitry and safety-technical equipment, automation of complete plants

How to impress us:

  • A good intermediate school leaving certificate at the very least

Duration of training

  • 3.5 years
