IIT Madras launches e-mobility course for working professionals
IIT-M: The course will provide an overview of the e-Mobility eco-system and basic fundamentals in technical areas. Last date to apply is September 30, 2022.
CHENNAI: Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) has launched an industry-oriented online certificate programme on e-Mobility for working professionals. The certificate programme was conceived with inputs from industry experts and would be continuously upgraded based on technology trends, market trends and industry needs, the institute said.
The online certificate programme contains 120 hours of video classes and another 40 hours of online contact classes with the faculty. Candidates need to complete regular assignments and a final evaluation, upon which they will receive a certificate. The first cohort will start in the beginning of October and registrations will happen on a first-come-first-served basis.
The last date to register for the online certificate programme on e-Mobility is September 30, 2022. The course will begin on October 2, 2022.
“A unique feature of the course is that four out of the nine modules in the programme have industry professionals delivering content. The course, being offered through IIT Madras’ Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE), will provide an overview of the e-Mobility Eco-System as well as basic fundamentals in technical areas such as vehicle development, power electronics, battery engineering, thermal management, power trains, and EMI/ EMC, among other areas,” IIT Madras said in a statement.
Explaining further on the course, the institute said, “Eco-System details on global and Indian market trends, technology trends, policy trends and supply chain trends will be given an overview before diving into technical details.”
Highlighting the need for such certificate programs, IIT Madras director V Kamakoti said “We announced our Dual Degree in EV Engineering late last year - a Program purely for our BTech students. Ever since, there have been a great many enquiries from Industry friends and well-wishers about a need for re-skilling or up-skilling their existing employees as the auto industry rapidly migrates major volumes to EVs in the coming years.”
Further, Kamakoti said, “We are therefore launching this Program in order to address the needs of the various Working Professionals across Industries and Departments. IIT Madras will continue to rapidly increase its presence in the e-Mobility space and primarily target remote delivery using advanced Technology for Working Professionals who need flexibility and relevance.”
