For me personally:
In Austria the school system is set up that you only have 8 years of mandatory school. After that you can choose to go to a company which can take you in and you learn a job, or you can go to an advancing school for another 3 to 5 years, similar to the high schools in america. The difference is that there are different schools depending on what you think you want to do as a profession later on.

I went to a HTL, which is like high school except focused on tech. I was in the Informatics schedule where they teach you about programming, telecommunications, networking etc. Even workshops wiring home electrics, soldering or even Turning.

I'm also currently a University student in Informatics and last spring through summer I was in a practical apprenticeship (which is mandatory) where I was working on a similar project as the OP is currently involved in.
