You've heard right. Electric Vehicles (EV) are all the buzz in India lately, and IITM is at the core of this future-facing technology. 

If you're interested in being part of the world's EV revolution, IITM would be the best place to do it!

Here are some exciting things you should know:

  • IITM now offers a unique and interdisciplinary dual-degree (IDDD) master's programme on electric vehicles. This will enhance research capabilities in this exciting and rapidly evolving field. 
  • The Centre of Battery Engineering and Electric Vehicles (C-BEEV) was set up by IITM in 2016 to promote R&D in electric mobility in collaboration with major automotive companies and battery manufacturers from around the world. This is a great platform for students and researchers to get hands-on experience in the EV industry.
  • The IITM network also has some luminaries in the EV field. Ather Energies, India's EV darling, was founded by IITM alumni and received funding and development support from other alumni. It is also supported by the Technology Development Board under the Department of Science and Technology.

IITM is at the forefront of what will be one of the leading technologies of the next century. We predict that many more exciting developments will arise from the work we do here!
