The System Test Engineering programme at the FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences is tailored to the needs of the industry. You will become an expert in the following fields:
- Applied Mathematics
You analyse and visualise measurement data and apply methods of signal processing and machine learning.
- Software Development & Test Automation
You develop automatic test software, establish data connections among measurement equipment, computers and devices under test and build up complex, automated measurement and test systems.
- Electronics & Measurement Engineering
You analyse and test digital and mixed-signal integrated circuits, implement test circuits, design EMC compliant printed circuit boards for high frequencies and program microcontrollers and their interfaces.
- Requirements & Quality Management
You implement test strategies, manage projects according to the V-model, understand the process of system and component qualifications and develop test specifications. You are familiar with measurement and test standards and reliability requirements for products and systems.
- Communication & Project Management
You plan and implement projects in the field of testing and document, present and communicate the results and measurement data.
The work-friendly organisation of the course means that modules are taught in blocks. During the first three semesters classes generally take place from Wednesday to Friday or Thursday to Saturday. There are three blocks of classes in the fourth semester. This allows for part-time work at an industrial company.
Graduates are able to analyse, verify and validate complex mechanical, electronic and software systems. They understand the test equipment required and use it to design automated measurement setups.
They are also proficient in interpreting and documenting the measurement results, are familiar with the relevant development processes and share responsibility for requirements and quality management.
Their expertise is in high demand in the semiconductor industry and the automotive sector.
- Digital Electronics
- Mathematical Methods in Test Engineering
- Mixed-Signal Electronics
- Software Environments and Programming
- System Requirements and Testing
- Data Mining and Processing
Our programme focuses on international students with a sound background either in electronic engineering, computer engineering, or mechanical engineering.
Most of our lecturers come directly from industry: Therefore, they are absolutely familiar with the professional activities of System Test Engineers and offer both theoretical up-to-date knowledge as well as practical examples and insight into the profession itself. Field trips give our students a direct insight into various companies and professions.
