VET School for gunsmiths with practical training (4 years with final examination)

Gunsmith training has been a tradition since 1878. The focus is on practical training, working with CNC-machines and in the area of CAD. In the course of a four year education, every student produces his or her own drop barrel rifle. The 4-year education is put on an equal footing with the journeyman's examination and ends with a final exam.

Job opportunity:
the profound, multifaceted and practical education in the areas of mechanical engineering and in the technical area of gunsmiths, as well as the good partnerships with renowned companies and administrative bodies at home and abroad enables the graduates of the area of weapon engineering to get good jobs in industry, trade (import/export), in the area of CNC-manufacturing and also with public authorities such as the Federal or the State Office of Criminal Investigation, the Federal Armed Forces or the executive authority.
