IIT Delhi will start a new postgraduate program in MTech in electric mobility from the academic session 2021-22. The program will be offered by the Centre for Automotive Research and Tribology (CART) at IIT Delhi. CART focuses on conducting high-end research and development in the area of battery-operated electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, storage and alternative energy sources, autonomous and connected vehicles.
Professor BK Panigrahi, head, CART, said: “The new PG group program has been designed with the active participation of leading professionals from academia and industry. Moreover, CART is already actively engaged and working with many industries on forefront projects in EVS. The students will get an opportunity to work with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and will also be exposed to work on various simulation software and HIL platforms.”
