The teaching topics of the curriculum are appropriately selected in order to horizontally cover as much part of the core vehicle electrification technology area as possible. It focuses on applied engineering concepts and provides industry insights in order to immerse the students into the electric vehicle technology, functionality and sustainability.
The curriculum is composed of 22 topics grouped into the five wider knowledge areas, namely core electric vehicle technologies from the electrical and mechanical point of view, other significant EV related topics like legislation or life cycle analysis, business administration and entrepreneurial topics as well as some short cultural lectures and events. The two latter areas give a multidisciplinary character to the curriculum. The list of the 24 courses of the curriculum is given below. The overall working effort is equivalent to 20 ECTS.
The educational activities are concluded with a medium sized project split into two parts the purpose of which is to integrate AR technology with the curriculum and provide a research insight to the students. It is characterized by large experiments that will lead to the development of a scaled automotive control system based on appropriate software and AR technology. At the same time, it will enforce the students to practice their gained knowledge. The technological outcomes of the project are presented by the students in scientific papers. This final educational activity is based on the PBL approach.
