What better way to prepare for a career at Linde than by combining academic learning with practical working experience? That’s what you get through our cooperative study programmes.

In Germany we work together with the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Stuttgart and Mannheim as well as with the Dresden International University (DIU). Our engineering study programmes at Mannheim, with special focus on chemical engineering, are stand-out examples of the cooperative study model.
