About this course

This course comprises of 8 modules that can either be pursued individually or as a whole. Each module builds competencies in one area and the systems engineering module ties all the learning together and lets the learners visualize the complete vehicle development process. The courses are designed to be experiential and domain agnostic – no pre-requisite knowledge is required to start the Master’s Program.

Course Details

Learning Outcomes

Why Get Certified?

Gain automotive engineering and automotive electronics expertise – Its no longer sufficient to be proficient in a single domain. 

Learn how to develop plant models for any physical system – Use a combination of Causal and Acausal modelling techniques

Learn how to analyze a system and design a control system accordingly. Subsequently, simulate the system and calibrate the control systems

Learn how automotive companies use MBD to accelerate their product development life cycle – also learn about systems engineering and the various process involved with it

Domain Knowledge

Gain an in-depth knowledge about automotive systems, mechatronics and embedded control. Also brush up on the foundations of thermal and fluid power systems which would help in developing automotive control systems. 

Power-Train Development

Learn to design an electric or hybrid-electric powertrain from scratch using mathematical models – Use Excel and subsequently learn to simulate using MATLAB / SIMULINK

Thermal Considerations

The primary area of focus for EV development remains the thermal considerations – Approach the problem from a CFD perspective and understand how to control heat in Electric Propulsion Systems.

Control Systems

Design, analyze and simulate control systems for various automotive and industrial applications, learn about PID Controllers, Robust Control, Kalman Filters and much more that can give you a competitive edge in your interviews

Model Based Development

Harness the power of MBD and learn how to quickly develop plant and control models for Electric and Hybrid Electric Applications, Industrial Systems and much more. Also learn how to perform MIL Testing for executing V&V plans 

Systems Engineering

The science of systems engineering is seldom taught at universities, yet is the driving force behind all industry processes. Learn Model Based Systems Engineering ( MBSE ) and how you can leverage it for career success
