The program helps learners develop their skills in relevant electric vehicle design frameworks, tools and technologies through an intensive learning experience of over 250 hours – a combination of learning content, hands-on projects, tutorials and more. multiple case studies, regular online mentoring and masterclasses taught by industry experts, and learning support.

As learners progress through the program, they learn to design and simulate individual components such as batteries, power converters, and motors. They are also introduced to industry-relevant programming tools and languages ​​such as Embedded C, MATLAB, Simulink, and Ansys. The emphasis on learning-by-doing means that learners will develop a strong portfolio of projects, which is essential for success in job applications and interviews.

Hari Krishnan Nair, co-founder of Great Learning, said: “Electric vehicles are the future of mobility. There is a growing need for highly skilled engineering professionals to work on EV design technology. With this program, learners will not only have the opportunity to learn from a diverse set of industry experts, but also access employment opportunities to get ahead and build their careers in this exciting new field.

The PG program will also include mock interviews with industry experts, resume guidance, mock employment entrance tests, and a gateway to targeted employment opportunities.
