About this Course:

Most automobile companies are vowing to switch to electric, a cleaner and sustainable alternative. An ‘electric’ revolution is coming to automobile sector in India. But, the industry is facing a shortage of  talented, aptly skilled engineers needed for the transition to electric drives as the primary source of motive power. Help fill that gap with DIYguru’s Hybrid and Electric Vehicle (H.EV.) curriculum. The coursework provides advanced knowledge and hands-on labs, in design, analysis, control, calibration, and operating characteristics of H.EVs. Whether you are a graduate or undergraduate student, you can integrate any number of these industry-ready certified courses into your skill-set. 


After the successful completion of this course, there will be a final quiz. 60% is the passing mark. Certification is provided by DIYguru in partnership with Vecmocon & Autosports.

Course Duration

This is a 30 Days online Course on an understanding of different components and working principles of an Electric Car.

Career Opportunity:

Globally, the electric car stock is projected to reach 20 million by 2020 and 70 million by 2025. India itself is estimated to see 30.81 million electric vehicles sales by 2040. At present, it is at around 9 million. The share of electric vehicles in passenger car sales is projected rise massively to 10.4 per cent by 2026 and 53.3 per cent by 2040.

By 2022, the world-wide electric vehicle value chain will likely be greater than $250 billion (Source: World Bank Study). Energy prices, environmental concerns, and fuel economy targets are driving the demand for hybrid and electric vehicle technicians now and into the future.

  • Automotive Engineering for Competition – BAJA SAE Virtuals

    Outstanding! 5

    They were not kidding when they said the course was "demanding". I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them. The sense of satisfaction I gained from completing each problem set was tremendous and even though the learning curve is steep (to say the least), I am now comfortable in my understanding of the basics of Automotive. I guarantee you will be pulling your hair out sometimes if you take this course, but you will have tremendous fun most of the time and the sense of accomplishment is exhilarating!
