This course is full of best-in-class content by leading faculty and industry experts in the form of videos and projects

Course Overview

  • This course provides an outline of the current Body in White (BiW) component design factors and detailed explanations about their significance to part function, cost, and reliability.
  • In this course, the modern design methodology is examined, covering Design for Manufacturing and Assembly and how determining the product end-use requirements is essential to creating successful contemporary products. 
  • Upon completion of this course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of the physical and theoretical design factors that must be considered during the creation of first-rate BIW components.
  • You can start your career as a design engineer in any sheet metal domain and with 2 to 3 years of experience, you can become a full-fledged BIW engineer.

Course Syllabus

On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Vehicle Development Cycle

  • This is an introductory session where you will be introduced to the basics of automobiles along with different models of car bodies.
  • You will learn about the different stages of vehicle development that a car will go through before reaching the customer.
  • You will also learn about the three years of development activity that precedes the development of an automotive model.

Basics of Automotive Body in White

  • In this session, you will be introduced to the basics of automotive BIW.
  • You will be introduced to the basics of steel and its properties in detail as steel is an important component used in the construction of automobiles.
  • The steps that are followed in the selection of the material will be discussed as well.
  • You will be given an introduction to cross-functional teams that exist in an organization, and the need to coordinate with them along with examples of master sections and 3D components of the parts for easy and clear understanding.

Design Methodology of a Hood, Fender, Roof, Back Doors, and Side Doors

Case study - Converting - Backdoor/Tailgate Inner Panel


  • In this module, we will present a real-life scenario where the effect of converting an inner panel from an aluminium cast to a steel deep draw part will be shown.
  • Here is a quick summary of this case. The following design parameters were identified as critical and hence were fully described:
    • The seal surface width was the same as the aluminium liftgate
    • Tailgate outer parting was maintained as the same
    • Liftgate thickness was modified
    • Gap and flushness were maintained
  • You will be able to clearly understand these design parameters and the decisions that were made.
  • In this case study, the design guidelines were set through a series of CAE simulations.


Design of key mechanism - Lock and Striker


  • In this module, you will study the anatomy of a Locker and Striker mechanism.
  • In order to be a successful product development engineer, it is very important to understand in detail the development process and design requirements for even the smallest component.


Case study Process and challenges with supplier manufactured parts

  • In this module, we will look at two case studies.
  • Both of these studies focus on supplier manufacturing practices.
  • We will discuss the design challenges faced by two Asian Automotive suppliers and then go over the solution methodologies
