|Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Engineering Academy|
|I.D. #||ACAD06||Duration||5 Days|
SAE Engineering Academies provide comprehensive and immersive training experiences, helping new and re-assigned engineers become proficient and productive in a short period of time. The Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Engineering Academy covers hybrid and electric vehicle engineering concepts, theory, and applications relevant to HEV, PHEV, EREV, and BEV for the passenger car industry. While the theory and concepts readily apply to the commercial vehicle industry as well, the examples and applications used will apply primarily to the passenger car industry.
| Upon completion of the academy, participants will be able to:
|Who Should Attend|
Individuals who already have a basic understanding of hybrid and/or electric vehicles who are seeking to increase their knowledge and understanding of hybrid vehicle system applications, including mechanical and electrical application engineers, design engineers, project managers, and other individuals who are working with or transitioning to hybrid-electric powertrain development, will find this academy particularly helpful.
| An engineering degree is highly recommended, but not required. This Academy does not cover basic electrical concepts and assumes that the attendee already understands such concepts (voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, inductance, etc.) In order to understand concepts discussed, all participants are required to have driven an HEV prior to attending the academy.
Please be advised that this course may involve one or more of the following: driving and/or riding in a vehicle; participating in a vehicle demonstration; and/or taking part in an offsite tour using outside transportation. You will be required to sign a waiver on-site and produce a valid driver's license from your state/country of residence
Attendees are asked to bring a calculator for in-class exercises.
