Design of a hybrid electric vehicle education program based on corporate needs
The needs of companies in the hybrid and electric vehicle business have been used to define a BS specialty in hybrid vehicles for electrical engineers at Kettering University. Two of the courses in this specialty are new courses whose development is sponsored by the US Department of Energy. Each course will be complemented by a laboratory that is also supported by the US Department of Energy. Both of the new courses will be developed into continuing education courses for delivery to company employees. The development of the new courses and laboratory will be completed at the end of 2011 and the continuing education versions will be available in 2012.
