  • You will also develop algorithms for automated classification of fault messages.
  • You extract additional information from traces and present it to your colleagues. 
Your qualifications – solid and appropriate
  • You are studying electrical engineering, ideally with a focus on power engineering. 
  • You are confident in using the MS Office package. It is also an advantage if you have already worked with Matlab.
