Minor in Electric Vehicle

The light vehicle industry is facing a shortage of engineering talent needed to retool for the use of electric drives as the primary source of motive power. The program will fill that gap with the Electric Vehicle curriculum. The coursework provides knowledge and hands-on labs in characteristics of EVs.

This will be a first level programme on electric vehicles. Students will be able to understand the operation of battery driven electric vehicles. The programme will start with introduction to automobile systems and vehicle dynamics to understand the basic concepts of vehicle technology. Then the course will start covering these focus areas one by one such as energy sources, battery charging technology, electric motors and power electronics in EVs. The course also includes mini project or internship which enhances the practical knowledge of students.
