A Quick Overview

This PG Certification in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Analysis program is the first of its kind in India. It is an 8-month long program that trains you on all the essential engineering concepts and tools that are used by top OEMs to design future Electric & ICE Vehicles.

Why enroll in this program?

Electric vehicles have seen a huge growth in the industry and are expected to grow 10 fold by 2025. Governments are encouraging their citizens to buy hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles in order to reduce carbon emission. This means that companies are looking for candidates that are well qualified in this field and have relevant skills that they can contribute for the growth of the company. 

Apart from this, the market has also opened a myriad of opportunities for freshers. With very few people in the industry with the required knowledge in this field, learning this course, increases your chances of landing a job in a company. 

To help you make it to your dream company and be part of this change, Skill Lync has put together the  Post Graduation Certification in HEV(PGHEV) course which you will need to make it to your dream company.

The PGHEV course is divided into two parts. 

  • The first part covers the essential courses in CFD, FEA, Design and EV domains to be pursued in person at Skill centres. This exposes students to a range of concepts involved in vehicle development across the domains. Consequently, this enables students to pursue a higher number of opportunities in comparison to domain specific roles. Part 1 courses are to be completed at our Skill Centres.
  • Part 2 covers the specialization courses in the domain of your choice (CFD/FEA/Design). Having gained an understanding of the various domains in part 1 of the program, students can pick a domain of their choice and specialize in it. Part 2 courses are done online.

Our exclusive Skill Center guidance for this program will help the students get one on one doubt clarification with the support engineers and will also allow them to be around like minded students. At the Skill Centers , the students will be provided access to softwares that might otherwise cost them a fortune. With the right environment and study space, the aim of the Skill Center is to provide the students with the space to help them focus better.  The state of the art facilities create an environment of R&D units in the top OEMs. Given that the courses are industry based, and hence complex, learning them at skill centers with the guidance of the support engineers makes the learning experience easier.

1ICE and Electric Powertrain

In this module, the objective is to familiarize the student with both the traditional (ICE) and electric powertrain concepts. While Electric Vehicles will eventually make it to the market, the ICE will always be continuously optimized and researched upon. When you finish the first two modules, you will be quite familiar with the following topics.

Performance Calculations
Understanding the key performance indicators is essential to understand any thermal system. Learning these will help you understand the entire Vehicle Development Process

Electric Vehicle Architecture
Most of the students must be familiar with how an I.C. Engine operates. When it comes to electric vehicles a thorough understanding of the various sub-systems is important in getting a holistic understanding of the system.

Battery Module System Design
The design of the BMS determines the driving range of the vehicle. Understanding the various design aspects of the BMS will help in engineering it perfectly.

Control Systems
In real-world conditions, a hybrid power-train employs a lot of electronics to switch back and forth between the two power-trains. This is employed using the application of control systems.

2Strength Calculations

A well-designed part helps keep passengers safe and Finite Element Analysis plays a key part in the development of such parts. Techniques such as steady-state and transient methods are used to estimate the strength of parts under linear and non-linear conditions. When you finish this module, you will learn which simulation methodologies need to be used for which type of parts and loads combinations.

Finite Element Analysis using LS-DYNA

LS-DYNA is a robust multi-physics environment. This will be the first course in this module and will help you achieve a strong foundation in FEA.

Crash-worthiness using HyperMesh and Radioss

This course is more application focussed. You will learn to perform computer simulations to estimate the crashworthiness of cars. In this regard, you will learn how to compute intrusion length and energy path distribution.

3Automotive Design

Learning a CAD Package(s) is not design. Designing is a problem solving technique, where you create a product that satisfies several constraints. These constraints can be technical and non-technical.

In this module, you will learn the art of designing to constraints. We will focus on how sheet metal parts are designed and manufactured in the industry. We will understand the different constraints that are in place while designing Body In White (BIW) components and use engineering principles to create the final product.


4Automotive Flow Analysis

Understanding flow behavior is extremely critical in obtaining peak performance from various sub-systems that make up a vehicle. From intake systems to the cylinder to the after-treatment components, every inch of piping, bends, and curves has been carefully designed to satisfy the requirements of several teams.

In this module, your focus is on taking up several courses that teach how to simulate flow in systems such as superchargers, turbochargers, cabin-interior, after-treatment systems, and finally the entire vehicle.

External Aerodynamics

In this module, You will learn, how to perform external aerodynamic analysis on full-sized passenger cars and racing cars. You will understand the objectives of your simulation and will prepare the computational models accordingly.

  1. Pumps, Compressors and Super-chargers
  2. Depending on the segment, a passenger vehicle can have multiple turbomachinery components. Each of these components are subjected to CFD simulations to evaluate their thermal performance. In this module, you will learn the following
  3. Creating the computational domain for turbo-machinery simulations.
  4. Choosing the right boundary and initial conditions for the problem.
  5. Employ steady and transient solvers to accomplish the end result.
  6. Understand core physical models such as turbulence and cavitation modeling
