Paris institutes to launch electric vehicle diploma
Wednesday 13 October 2010
Four institutes of higher learning in Paris are to launch a masters diploma in electric vehicles October 12.
The course, the first of its kind, will provide specialist training to engineers in the technologies required for the design and production of electric vehicles.
Although automotive engineering courses are fairly common in higher education institutions, most famously in the Michigan area where the University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Michigan Technological University compete for the best students, ParisTech and its partner Renault say this is the first masters course in EVs.
Students can expect to cover a wide range of theoretical and technical aspects of the course, which is taught at Arts et Métiers ParisTech, ENSTA ParisTech, Mines ParisTech and Ponts ParisTech.
After a three-month period studying the main issues in sustainable mobility, students will be able to select courses looking at technology such as energy storage and electro-mechanical conversion, or architecture/design courses focusing on the engineering behind EVs.
The training is then followed by a three-month internship at a research laboratory and a six-month "professional mission" at a company.
