  • Use simulation throughout the product development cycle, compare different concepts and design variations with respect to EMC ability
  • The practical work content shall contain at least one prototype cycle
  • Evaluate various EMC aspects, e.g. comparing different component locations in a system or optimizing cable routing paths to minimize coupling in order to predict and mitigate potential EMC issues during design phase
  • Use simulations to give in-depth insight into the root cause of EMC issues and in the development of more robust solutions
  • Perform transient analysis like Electrostatic Discharge in time and frequency domain in order to predict effect of transient pulses to electronic circuits directly or indirectly
  • Gather required information from cross functional team on scope of analysis
  • Setting-up a model, executing simulation and post processing, analyzing and reporting results


We expect from you


  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree studies in Electrical Engineering, Electronics, Power Electronics or similar
