Top 4 Job Roles for an Electric Vehicle Engineer

logo

Skill-Lync

The landscape of electric vehicles and automotive electronics is evolving, and there is a lot of potential for advancements in this field. In the last two years, Electric Vehicle Jobs have spiked by 108%. Learning recent technological trends in battery technology and embedded systems will lead you to a promising career.

 

Top 4 Job Roles for an Electric Vehicle Engineer

 

The media will cover a wide range of subjects in the next five years. These include connected vehicles, shared mobility, autonomous driving, and improved driver support systems, among others. As a result of these technological advancements, many EV Job Roles will emerge in the present decade.

 

E-Vehicle (EV) Industries

According to the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), many employment opportunities will be created in India's electric vehicle industry over the next decade.

By 2050, NITI Aayog estimates that the EV sector will produce more than 2 million extra jobs. At present, the average yearly income for an electrical design engineer in India is 4.0 Lakhs, with salaries ranging from 2.0 Lakhs to 9.3 Lakhs.

The government expects the EV industry to help the country's economic development.

Our economies are currently undergoing a significant transformation, which is being driven by the growth of emerging markets, the adoption of new technology, government sustainability initiatives, and shifting consumer ownership choices. Automotive will follow other industries that have been transformed by rising automation and digitalisation. These elements in the automobile industry were reinforced by a number of disruptive technology-driven trends, including connectivity, diversified mobility, autonomous driving, and electrification.

 

 

Consequently, most of the world's leading automakers believe electric vehicles will significantly grow over the next decade.

According to the Times of India, there will be more jobs in the Electric Vehicle industry in the next several years. Right now, there are 1,742 charging stations in India, but that number is predicted to rise up to 100,000 by 2027 to meet the demand created by the 14 lakh million EVs. These vehicles are anticipated to be driving on Indian roads by then.

According to the IVCA-EY-IndusLaw, factors including the demand for personal mobility and the increase in gasoline and diesel prices are supporting the spike in EV sales.

 

Hardware Design Engineers will have plenty of work to do as the number of electric vehicles on the road grows. The person in this position will design, develop, test, debug, and validate the electrical hardware components of chargers and EVSE charging technologies.

Options for Electrical Engineers

Electrical engineering students, both undergrads and grads, will soon be able to choose various career paths in the EV business, such as Motor Design Engineer, BMS Application Engineer, Simulation Engineer, etc. The departments listed below have job openings for electrical engineers.

  • Development and Research
  • Designing
  • Manufacturing
  • Maintenance
  • Stations for recharging one's battery

 

Below, we've outlined some of the most likely outcomes for each area.

Opportunities in R&D

With the advent of technologies like IoT, artificial intelligence, and modern manufacturing techniques has created a huge space for improvement in the automobile industry. 

The recent tragedies with the explosion of batteries in EVs have made BMS engineers delve deeper into the battery pack design.

If you are passionate about any of these fields and possess the right skill sets, you are more likely to be hired by an EV manufacturer.

 

Possibilities for Design

Enhancements in the motor, braking system and electronic devices can be implemented by electrical engineers.

Engineers consider the financial and environmental advantages of creating systems with superior design.

Enhancement of the driver’s ergonomics is always a focus in automotive design.

 

Possibilities for Design

 

Possibilities in Manufacturing

Engineers with specialised training are needed in the factories that produce electric automobiles. The ability to develop and optimise motors, batteries, manufacturing processes, and operations.

In all of the above areas, electrical engineers can make their careers by enhancing their skills to complete various job tasks.

 

Opportunities in Charging Stations

Many firms like TATA motors and Ola Electric have planned to put charging stations at different sites throughout India.

As the number of Electric Vehicles is surging in the country, charging stations will be required. Electrical Engineers will get the possibility to work in these charging stations.

With this many employment prospects accessible in the Electric Vehicle market, Electrical Engineers must be prepared to take the opportunity. To succeed in this industry, it is necessary to acquire the required skills.

The role of electrical engineers is to devise, create, test, and oversee the production of electrical components. They're in charge of developing the electrical circuitry necessary for a hybrid car's gas engine to recharge the battery and send electricity to the electric motor.

The below tasks are carried out to validate an EV battery that runs within a range of 200-800 Volts.

  • They check whether the battery charge is ever fluctuating below 25%
  • Ensure that the power supply is cut down after a prolonged ride 
  • Ensure that the battery is never fully charged.

 

Electronics engineers develop, create, and test electronic systems and components for these vehicles. The primary focus of these engineers is on the vehicle's electronic control systems and other electronic parts. 

  • Computer engineers configure the CPU and memory with their “building blocks.”
  • An EV's interior climate control and electronic component heat dissipation are the responsibility of thermal-management engineers (TM).
  • EMC (electromagnetic control) experts propose strategies to avoid EMI from harming internal systems in the EV and external systems in other equipment.
  •  Lighting engineers design the EV’s internal and external lighting, mainly LEDs.
  • It is imperative that all components of the electric vehicle (EV) be thoroughly tested to guarantee that everything works as it should.
  • Test instrument engineers build equipment utilised to test various features on an EV. These tools could be found in a manufacturing plant or a vehicle dealership's service department.

 

Conclusion

The electric vehicle industry is gaining popularity due to its positive environmental impact and low operating expenses. Electrical engineers have many job options in electric vehicle production, design, research, and maintenance expansion. The income of a fresh electrical engineer can reach up to 8.0 lakhs per year or ₹ 66.7 thousand per month.

It is expected that India and the rest of the world will pay close attention to the development of electric mobility in the coming decade.
