Are you interested in computer science and can get any PC up and running again? A career as an IT specialist for system integration or in another field can lead to a significant position in the IT department of companies or public authorities. IT specialists for system integration ensure that all existing software and hardware components are well connected so that all digital processes run smoothly. English language skills are an advantage so that you can operate all the programmes.

Nowadays, public authorities and companies rely heavily on a functioning IT system. They usually form their own departments that deal exclusively with the procurement, implementation or even programming of hardware and software components. The occupation of IT specialist is divided into four areas altogether:

  • IT specialist for system integration
  • IT specialist for application development
  • IT specialist for data and process analysis
  • IT specialist for digital networking

The focus within the training for an IT specialist for system integration is on the conception and realisation of an entire IT system and the associated configuration of networks. You learn how to select and integrate external providers. This can be the case when solving compatibility problems or transferring existing data into the system. You also learn how to design and carry out a system test.

The specialised content taught also includes the administration of all necessary hardware and software components. The creation of guidelines, the administration of licence rights and the analysis of user requests are some examples of this. As an IT specialist for system integration, you will often look after an IT system for several years and thus acquire knowledge in the planning of system recovery and data backup procedures as well as in the proper monitoring and archiving of all IT resources. Already during the apprenticeship, it is possible to specialise in topics such as radio networks or data centre operation, in accordance with the apprenticeship company.


This is what a potential working day as an IT specialist for system integration could look like for you:

Planning and development phase: First, the requirements for the information and communication solutions to be installed must be clarified by your employer. Is it necessary to buy and configure new computers or is it just a connection between them? Should the systems be expanded later? You have an understanding of the technical possibilities and offer support in selecting the necessary software and hardware components.

Implementation: You set up new computers and systems, connect them to each other and to the server as well as to other devices such as printers and production equipment. You open devices, connect them to the Internet and check the connection between the individual components of the IT system.

Support: As an IT specialist for system integration, you are responsible for creating instructions and documentation for all users. In addition, you provide training to the company's employees on how to operate the systems and explain all relevant functions of the networks.

Administration: Your job is to ensure that the various components work together smoothly, to make adjustments and extensions as needed, to update operating systems and to install new software if necessary. You keep up to date with the latest market trends and know which IT trends could be beneficial for your employer.

Security: Your responsibilities also include security. As a system administrator, you will install firewalls, filtering or antivirus programs to prevent illegal access and ensure that data is transmitted in encrypted form. You are able to recognise malware and know effective measures to defend against cyberattacks.

IT support: You are the first contact person in case of problems with the system. Your colleague can no longer start his PC or check his e-mails? Then you immediately start investigating the causes, diagnosing the problem and immediately rectifying any errors. If necessary, you can also offer IT support from outside. Support also includes user training, for example when a new programme is introduced. Your task is to show the employees the application and to plan and organise the training in advance.
