Telematics Engineer - job profile

Telematics Engineer - job profile

Telematics engineer
TrainingAn apprenticeship lasts four years. Telematics engineers are trained on the job and visit a vocational school up to two days per week.

Practical trainingUntil recently, it was not possible to specialize in the area of telematics until you had completed basic training as an electrician or an information systems technician. This is no longer enough. Beginning in August 2000, the first pure telematics engineers began training. Perhaps this is just the profession for you.
As a specialist for communication and information technology you offer your customers simple solutions for difficult problems. You are the right partner for telephone, fax, Internet, e-mail, cell phone, computer, and laptop issues. You understand your craft in every respect. Because as a telematics engineer you not only know how to deal with computer networks but also installations. You can install telecommunications equipment and lay the cables for data and information flowing through entire buildings. Radio, television and satellite equipment are also part of your repertoire. As a telematics engineer, you make sure that images flow, e-mails are received and the telephone rings. Through your work you bring people closer together, because communication is what life is all about. And you make sure it functions perfectly.
During your entire training period, you will develop general professional skills, such as learning and work methods, creativity, flexibility, team skills, independence, communication skills, etc.

Vocational classroom trainingTheoretical training at the vocational schools is broken down into skills levels. At level G, the fundamental groundwork is laid; level E is for advanced skills. You can change your level during your apprenticeship. The core courses at a vocational school include: general mathematics, information technology, learning and work methods, physics, chemistry, technical English, materials and processing technology, electronics, digital and data technology, gymnastics and sports.

Vocational MaturaIf you pass an acceptance examination, you may attend a vocational middle school and complete a vocational Matura (university-entrance certificate) as an apprentice.

Personal qualificationsTelematics engineers enjoy arithmetic and algebra, and like to work at computers. They like to experiment and fiddle around with projects, and are interested in technical interrelationships and electronics. Telematics engineers can do skilled and precise work with their hands, and generally work thoroughly, carefully and exactly. In addition, they have the ability to think in both abstract and analytical terms. Rapid developments in the profession mean they must be willing to learn and train continuously.

Scholastic qualificationsLevel G: average grades in upper school; Level E: above-average grades in upper school.

Professional prospectsAfter completion of the apprentice with a federal Certificate of Competence, a telematics engineer has a wide range of ongoing education possibilities: computer professional, software specialist, telematics engineer in TS (colleges of technology), electrical engineer or information systems engineer in FH (universities of applied sciences).
