Online Hybrid Electric Drive Vehicle Engineering Certificate

Electric vehicle controls.
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. Boost your career with an online hybrid electric drive vehicle engineering certificate from an accredited university.

Michigan Tech offers a 15 credit graduate certificate in hybrid electric drive vehicle engineering designed to provide students with an advanced program in the design, calibration, and operating characteristics of electric-drive and hybrid-drive vehicles.

The Future of Hybrid Technologies

Our certificates are based on a distance-learning course initially developed by Michigan Tech, General Motors, and AVL, and selected by the Michigan Academy of Green Mobility for training automotive engineers. A Department of Energy grant funded the development of the full curriculum and mobile laboratory. The interdisciplinary program was designed with input from Argonne National Laboratory and the following industry partners: MAGMA, General Motors, Eaton, Horiba, MathWorks, Schweitzer Engineering Labs, and Woodward. This program is designed, with support from both the US Department of Energy and the State of Michigan, to address these educational needs.
