Occupational profile of an industrial master craftsman/woman for metal

Industrial master craftsmen and women continue to play a key role in modern companies. Positioned at the interface between planning and production, they act as the intermediaries between (skilled) workers and the management. Their three-fold qualification allows them to be specialists in their chosen field, leaders and trainers. Their core duties and responsibilities lie in the technical and organizational fields, as well as in the management and training of employees. They incorporate and implement new procedural, information and communication technologies into their own work processes and achievements.

For these reasons industrial master craftsmen and women are able to acquire positions in companies varying in size as well as belonging to many different branches. They can often be found working in positions of higher management. Deployment and opportunities for advancement can be found in planning processes, in the supervision of productions processes, in the installment, maintenance, care and improvement of operating facilities and, naturally, in the promotion and training of young employees. Further fields of endeavour are also in planning operational processes, quality control and the supervision of the cost development of a company. Part of the job of an industrial master craftsman, of course, involves supporting and deploying employees in accordance with their level of performance, qualifications and suitability.

This course of study teaches students valuable know-how in business management, law, technology, organization and human resources. For employees working in the metal processing field, further training as an industrial master craftsman for metal is the right step towards qualifying themselves for a higher position.
