Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The knowledge needed to good orientation in the principles of simulation and testing of electric and electronic systems in the automotive industry, will be achieved. The obtained knowledge should be a part of the general knowledge of testing engineer in electronics and automotive areas.

Teaching methods

Project work


The subject focuses on the verification of electrical and electronic systems for automotive applications by computer simulation and testing. Namely the systems which consist of electronic control units for automotive electronics systems. For the simulations and testing there are used special software and special testing hardware. The prerequisites of this subject are electronics, simulation and testing procedure for automotive.
