Electric Vehicles are going to be the next big thing in the world of automobiles and developing the right skills is necessary if you want to make it big in this industry.

Why should a student take the Skill-Lync Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Analysis Master's Program?

When someone starts thinking about the coursework from a student's point of view, you might wonder how the course is going to add value to an undergraduate student, someone looking for a job in the mechanical domain, or a professional who is already working for 1-2 years in the field. 

Relevant Course Curriculum

The HEV Master's program's course curriculum is designed after taking into account the future of EVs in India and abroad. Skill-Lync reached out to various experts with 15-20 years of experience in the field and several entrepreneurs and startups who are working in the EV domain to better understand the job market. 

Rising Demand

Apart from a relevant course curriculum, knowledge of EV is the need of the hour. Vehicle manufacturers are concerned with ramping up their Research and Development investments in the EV sector. 

Also, you can't deny the fact that by the year 2030, we are going to witness a boom in the Electric Vehicles Technology and Market capture. It will ultimately lead to a sudden shift in demand for more electric technology in the transportation sector. 

Your College Isn't Enough

Due to this shift in the next 5-10 years, a typical mechanical or automotive engineer will be expected to have comprehensive knowledge of vehicle electrical systems and how Hybrid Electric Vehicles work. The current engineering curriculum of colleges in India leaves much to be desired. 

Better Job Prospects 

Nowadays, many OEMs are enrolling their mechanical engineers in training involved with electrical modules ranging from electric wiring and controls to the Battery Management System (BMS). 

Having prior knowledge of the fundamentals of vehicle electrical systems is going to give you an edge over your peers during job applications as the frequency of these questions have started to slowly increase in interviews to major OEMs. 

Hence, having a comprehensive yet applicable understanding of vehicle electrical architecture should be considered as a prerequisite for someone who wants to get into the domain of Hybrid Electric Vehicles.

What does a student learn from this course?

The functional knowledge of vehicle electricals and electronics systems will be quintessential in the future for mechanical engineers. Let's have a glance at what the course offers 

Semester 1 

It focuses primarily on electric vehicle architecture and helps you develop an aptitude of the working of electric vehicles through a pen-paper based calculation approach. 

Through the coursework of semester 1, you will also get to know about yet another crucial electrical concept of 'Controls'. It involves the mechanism of obtaining the output from a set of input data, which is processed in a close feedback loop. 

The syllabus of semester 1 includes:

  • MATLAB for Mechanical Engineers
  • Introduction to HEV using MATLAB and Simulink
  • Introduction to Control of Electrical vehicles
  • Introduction to Battery technology using MATLAB and Simulink
  • Matlab and Simulink for ADAS features

After enrolling in the course, the students will get a fundamental knowledge of Electric Vehicle Architecture, Battery Management System, and Controls. 

What separates Skill-Lync's HEV Master's course from others?

One benefit of enrolling in the course is that you will get to know where you stand relative to the competition. This course will help in searching out your real passion within the domain of mechanical engineering.

If you don't feel confident about the electrical concepts taught in semester 1, semester 2 of the course includes mechanical engineering topics like CFD using MATLAB, designing and analysis on SOLIDWORKS, Python fundamentals, and more. So even with the rudimentary knowledge of electrical concepts from the first semester, you can excel in the domain by having a solid command over mechanical concepts. 

We have noticed that, Initially, a lot of mechanical students feel that they can't grasp concepts of electrical engineering and coding in particular. But once they get into the coursework and start working on challenges and assignments, they start gaining the confidence to implement the concepts while working on projects.

At Skill-Lync, student's performances' are analyzed every week, and the fundamentals or concepts which a student is not able to comprehend are communicated. This way, the student could get a clear understanding of concepts and get ready to implement them in industry-oriented problems.


Since most of the mechanical systems are integrated with electrical control systems (and with the EV trend set to increase in the coming decade), it is quite crucial for an individual who wants to work in the domain of automobile engineering to gain knowledge of electrical concepts.

The Hybrid Electric Vehicle program offered by Skill-Lync can help you make a breakthrough in the market. Many students who have undertaken courses from Skill-Lync believe that these courses are more informative, industry-oriented, and engaging as compared to those offered by their respective universities.
