produce a Bachelor’s thesis which must receive a pass mark
pass the Bachelor’s board examination
Your title on graduation will be "Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSc)“.
The Bachelor’s thesis allows you to gain your first experience in research & development (R&D) and to put the finishing touches to your experience before you join the world of work.
During the fifth semester, you will define a task together with the training company and a lecturer, which will also be the topic of your Bachelor’s thesis. You will write this thesis in your sixth semester during the company internship. You will apply the skills you have acquired during the course to solve a key issue for the training company and in doing so, demonstrate your professional and academic skills.
Students take their Bachelor’s examination after successfully completing all the classes of the degree programme and receiving a positive assessment from their internship in the sixth semester. The exam aims to determine whether you have acquired the essential competencies and skills relating to this field of work and also knowledge of the methods, systems and terminology used in specialist areas.
The examination consists of an official oral exam before a relevant examination board made up of at least three and a maximum of four members. In the exam students are required to give a presentation in English on their thesis and then discuss it and how the thesis relate to relevant subjects within the curriculum.
Through the degree programme you’ll be well prepared for the exam and will be able to demonstrate yet again what you have learnt.
The degree programme offers a sound, practical and comprehensive education which allows you to go straight into the world of work. However continuing your education is always worthwhile in the long term. That’s why we recommend the Electronics and Computer Engineering Master’s programme or the System Test Engineering Master's programme at FH JOANNEUM, where you can specialise and acquire more in-depth knowledge.
