Multi-disciplinary technicians EFZ [Swiss certificate of competence]

Multi-disciplinary technicians participate in the development, manufacture and assembly of tools, equipment parts or entire systems. For one-off production or prototyping, they work manually on lathes, milling, drilling and grinding machines. In most cases, computer-controlled machines are also used, which are programmed according to design drawings - whereby multi-disciplinary technicians also define the machining steps. As you can see, this profession offers both manual and technical challenges.

Multi-disciplinary technicians select the required tools, equip the machines with them and manufacture the workpieces. For high volumes, they monitor the production process. Finally, they use high-precision measuring and testing instruments to check the quality of the workpieces.

In consultation with their team and with engineers, multi-disciplinary technicians develop design solutions and create technical documents. In addition, they assemble devices, machines and systems and put them into operation. Together with other specialists, they assemble mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical parts into a functioning overall construct. During commissioning, they perform tests. A job at RUAG therefore offers many opportunities for you to demonstrate your technical talent.


What we offer you

In addition to development, production and assembly, you will also carry out maintenance and repairs during your training, together with our multi-disciplinary technicians. Among other things, this includes maintenance work on aircraft and helicopters and their components.

What you should bring with you

You have completed primary school and have good grades in mathematics and physics. You also have a good technical understanding and show interest in technical contexts and mechanics. You understand abstract relationships without any problems and you have the ability to imagine things spatially.

Duration of apprenticeship

Your apprenticeship at RUAG will last 4 years.
