Your training in the field of materials and quality

From properties to quality – here you learn everything about materials

As a materials tester, you subject various materials to examination. You investigate materials for their properties and qualities. Using different devices, you stretch, compress, or bend the materials. But you don’t just assess them from the outside. To examine the interior, you might use tools such as microscopes, X-rays, or ultrasound. In your work, you search for possible defects and document how different materials behave under stress.

Do you enjoy delving into details? Are you interested in the composition and structure of materials? Then training as a materials tester is for you!
