This means you’ll know your way around building blueprints, as well as cooling and electrical single lines and schematics. You’ll also be a good communicator and comfortable writing technical documentation, such as MOP/SOPs. Having completed a technical higher education in mechanical engineering, you’ll also need English up to B2 level.
