IIT Madras CODE offers Certificate Program on eMobility and Electric Vehicle Engineering – Cohort 3

IIT Madras Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE) is offering a 6-month certificate course for Industry Professionals on eMobility and Electric Vehicle Engineering – Cohort 3. This course has been curated by IIT Madras – along with experts from industry – to provide a comprehensive overview of eMobility and EVs.

About the Course

The course is designed for working professionals who are looking to acquire basic exposure and awareness in eMobility. After completion, the candidates can choose to dive deeper into those specific areas that are of interest to them in further programs IIT Madras plans to launch. 

With a rapid switch in the focus of the automobile industry, from ICE Vehicles to Electric Vehicles, there is a huge requirement for skilled human resources who have a sound knowledge of Electric Vehicles, and their constituents and ecosystems. The current requirement of the industry and among academicians can only be fulfilled by providing a source of learning in the EV domain. This course is specifically designed to make candidates aware about the Electric Vehicle and its technology, and to act as a bridge between Industry and Academia.

With the successful completion of Cohort 1 (October 2022-April 2023), the participants visited IITM campus on 29th April 2023 to receive their program completion certificate.

Feedback from some participants were as follows

  1.  “Not just another online course. It’s very rigorous and you get the opportunity to learn what goes inside EV in-depth.”
  2.  “A good starting point for someone who wants to embark on the EV journey.”
  3.  “The course is curated to be relevant to the ever-evolving field of EV.”
  4.  “Courses related to the batteries, cooling systems and market acceptance of electric vehicles were thoroughly enjoyable.”

The second cohort is now going on and the registration for the third cohort of eMobility and Electric Vehicle Engineering Course is now open. 

Eligibility Criteria

Anyone who has a Bachelor’s degree in an allied Engineering or Science domain (B.Tech , B.E , B.Sc Etc.,)
