  • Press Release

Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) is launching an industry-oriented Online Certificate Program on e-Mobility for Working Professionals. A unique feature of the course is that four out of the nine modules in the Program have Industry Professionals delivering content.

The certificate program was conceived with inputs from industry experts and would be continuously upgraded based on technology trends, market trends and industry needs.

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.

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, Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, 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, Prof. 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."

30th September 2022 is the last date to register for the batch starting on 02 October 2022. Details about the course can be obtained from - or by writing to

Elaborating further on the Program, Prof. Devendra Jalihal, Chairman, Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE), IIT Madras, said, "This has essentially been evolved to address the needs of those Engineers in companies who are looking to get a well-structured overview and introduction to the various aspects of e-Mobility - people in functions such as Manufacturing, Sourcing, Quality, AfterMarket, etc. as well as Engineers in Product Development who are looking to move careers to eMobility.

Further, Prof. Devendra Jalihal added, "In order to ensure that it suits this purpose across OEMs as well as Tier1 companies, we have brought in Experts from Industry to deliver certain parts of the content. There will be regular assignments as well as an evaluation at the end of each module- ensuring a robust pedagogy."

The Program contains 120 hours of video classes and another 40 hours of online contact classes with the Faculty. The 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.
