Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) is launching a second cohort for its industry-oriented Online Certificate Program on e-Mobility for Working Professionals. The First cohort, launched in September 2022, witnessed record levels of enrolment.
The certificate program was conceived with inputs from industry experts and is being continuously upgraded based on technology trends, market trends and industry needs.
A 6-month, 120-hour Certification Program, the working professionals are offered a unique format in which they have flexibility in watching content that is backed up with periodic live online sessions with Faculty. The clarifications and assessments on the course content are IT-enabled, with support from Teaching Assistants where required.

Speaking about this program, Dr. Shankar Venugopal, VP at Mahindra Research Valley and Dean of Mahindra Technical Academy, said, “This Program from CODE IITM is now a part of our reskilling strategy to address our eMobility Engineering needs. The program is more practice-oriented than concept-oriented aspects like Market, Cost, Tech Trends, Policy Trends, Vehicle Engineering, etc., made possible by industry experts and academic experts collaborating to design and create the content. This makes the course very suitable for a working professional.”
The course, being offered through IIT Madras’ Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE), provides an overview of the e-Mobility Eco-System as well as basic fundamentals in technical areas such as vehicle development, power electronics, battery engineering, thermal management, power trains, and EMI/ EMC, among other areas.
