Bridge to Test

TBD

80 to 96 hours of hands on submersion in Test Engineering. It is intended to take someone with little to no experience in Test Engineering and turn them into a capable self-learner and tool user who understands the test process and can contribute to it. It is an immersive experience which requires 8 hours a day in the lab and homework at night. There is no weekend off, there is only the Weekend Challenge and more simulator and tester time. Dr. Rainer is Fink will be lecturing key topics throughout the class. Ellen Onderko (LTX, TERADYNE, and 14 Semesters at TAMU) will be introducing Tester capabilities and assisting you to learn them. 4 Technical Associates of the program will be assisting students throughout the class.
