Created by Shreya Gupta, Modified on Thu, 08 Jun 2023 at 06:34 PM by Shreya Gupta

The Interdisciplinary Dual Degree program in EVs has been conceived to cater to the medium-term needs of Automotive OEMs and their Tier 1 vendors as well as the requirements of the numerous startups that are evolving in this space. It is proposed to develop industry-ready professionals who can take up careers in the Functions of Engineering and Development of various types of EVs—starting from e2W and e3W and going all the way to eBuses and eTrucks.

Learning Outcomes

Students graduating with a dual degree in EVs shall be capable of understanding, conceptualising, analysing, applying and debugging in the following areas related to EVs:

  • Vehicle Dynamics

  • Battery Engineering, including Cell Development and use

  • Power Electronics and Embedded Systems for EVs

  • Motors and their Controllers

  • Vehicle Control strategies and algorithms

  • Financial, Market and Economic considerations for an EV EcoSystem

  • Material Engineering, including advanced Materials and their processes, for EVs

  • The Fundamental Taxonomy, Topology and Architecture of xEVs

  • Thermal Management of all EV systems and aggregates

Who is eligible to apply? 

A B.Tech student or a Dual Degree student of IIT Madras in any discipline (except biosciences) is eligible to upgrade/opt for this program provided the student has a CGPA of 8.0 or above up to 5th semester. Total number of seats will be fixed at 25 and allocation of dual degree specialization and award of the degree will be governed by the rules of the Institute.

Future Prospects

Upon graduation, students will be well-prepared for immediate engineering and developmental roles due to their strong fundamentals and application-oriented approach. The program's balanced curriculum and deep scientific understanding of each topic enable students to perform well in industry. Projects, assignments, and internships provided enhance their employability and entrepreneurial skills. The program also offers elective courses for specialization in domains like battery technology, power electronics, or motor engineering, allowing students to pursue their interests.
