Dual degree as introduction to the fire protection sector

Experience report from a student

19_Tobias_Maier_web“Thanks to prior knowledge of my technical theory in the area of
Sanitary, Heating and Air Conditioning Technology, the degree in Supply and Environmental Engineering offered using the dual system seemed a very interesting way to intensify my education. The dual concept spoke to me immediately with its requirements in the practical phases.

I decided on fire protection due to the wide range of work areas with their many technical requirements, from planning to implementation. Every fire protection system has its own focus points and offers its special challenges.

At CALANBAU Brandschutzanlagen GmbH, all my colleagues in the subsidiaries and departments where I had worked earlier greeted me in a very warm, friendly manner. I got along very well with everybody and I’m looking forward to continued good cooperation.

The dual degree is a mixture of theory and practical experience. Continual changes between theoretical and practical phases give you the opportunity to apply the appropriate theoretical knowledge directly to the planning, project planning and development of real systems. The Fire Protection Solutions Group offers a wide range of systems, and each one means a new technical challenge.

For my professional future, I hope to improve my technical knowledge and business acumen in terms of planning and project work, and to be able to use my skills effectively for the company.

I love it at CALANBAU and I also love the work in fire protection, so I hope to stay here for a long time.”
