In a bid to encourage the electric mobility across the country and give professionals an opportunity to work in this field, the Automotive Research Association of India (Arai) Academy, Pune has now started two specialised courses. As the central government is encouraging people to use electric vehicles, several automobile manufacturing companies have started making electric vehicles. Due to which there has been a demand of skilled engineers in this ‘automotive engineering’ sector.

K C Vora, senior deputy director and head of Arai Academy said, “The first course is the post graduate diploma in electric mobility, it is a one year course which was started in August 2019. We have tied up with College of Engineering Pune (COEP), Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) and Cummins College of Engineering for Women. We intake 20 students from each institute. Every Monday and Tuesday they come to Arai academy and for the remaining weekdays they go to their respective college for lectures. The students are given practical exposure about how electrical vehicles are designed, tested and manufactured. New intakes will start in June.”

“Second course is MTech in electric and hybrid vehicle which is a two-year course. First year is done at Vel Tech University in Chennai and second year is completed at Arai Academy Pune. This course was also started last year, the intake is of 30 students and this year 25 students enrolled for it,” he added

According to Vora, student who take up these courses can pursue a career as a design engineer, test engineer or maintenance engineer for electric vehicles.
