ISO 17025 specifications ensure adherence to high quality standards and regular maintenance and calibration. This also has a positive impact on the processes not covered by the accreditation.

The building complex of the Institute of Automotive Engineering, located at Alte Poststrasse 150, is divided into three sections: Section A houses various laboratories which are used for lectures and research projects. The workshop and vehicle hall (including a driving simulator) located in section B are used for research and teaching and are also available to the FH JOANNEUM Formula Student Racing Team. Section C houses various test cells and is only accessible for accredited persons.
