Some common tasks for industrial electricians are service, maintenance and commissioning of electrical and automation equipment. You can be employed in an industrial company or in an installation / service company and perform assignments in industries, public buildings / facilities.

The training for Industrial Electricians can also be seen as a competence development of already trained installation electricians who need to broaden their area of competence. You can work in parallel with the studies you decide on the pace of study.
