“After my apprenticeship at the FGK, I decided to do a dual study program so that I can work in my trained profession, as a ceramics testing technologist, and at the same time deepen my specialist knowledge during my studies.

I am happy that I can complete the dual study program at FGK and my colleagues support me.”
