ASDC, DIYguru launch Nanodegree Program to upskill engineering students in EV technology
The six-month program will be conducted in a mix of online recorded and live lectures conducted on the weekends.
The Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) has launched its Electric Mobility Nanodegree Program in association with DIYguru, an online learning platform for engineers across India and Southeast Asia. The six-month program will be conducted in a mix of online recorded and live lectures conducted on the weekends.
The program is specially designed for students and professionals of engineering and diploma background. The certification will be driven by ASDC's blockchain-powered solution – Certif-ID, the latest technology to protect certificates against counterfeit and fake certificates.
DIYguru is said to have launched its e-mobility program back in 2016 with Vecmocon, based out of IIT Delhi, and has since trained more than 50,000 students and professionals from Hyundai, Bosch, and Maruti Suzuki placing more than 80 percent of its students in the EV market. It has recently been accredited as the official partner of ISRO in the implementation of online courses in Space Remote Sensing Satellite in India.
Arindam Lahiri, CEO, ASDC said “As the technology-cost curve is becoming steeper, more technologies are finding their way into the automotive sector at present. Be it hybrid technology, or electric vehicles, the automotive industry is evolving at a rapid pace. The program’s goal is to train engineering and diploma students to fill the supply deficit of the skilled automotive workforce. The industry has to cope with rapid digitalization to meet the growing demands of our consumers. It is facing a rising skills shortage."
The government had initiated the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan in the year 2013 to put 6-7 million electric vehicles on Indian roads by 2020 and committing to achieving 30 percent e-mobility in the country by 2030. To achieve this goal India will need to create a skilled and trained workforce that has expertise in design and testing, battery manufacturing and management, sales, services, and infrastructure of electric vehicles. ASDC aims to skill and certify 25 million youth in the next 10 years, equipping professionals with skills in areas like IoT, mechatronics, robotics, 3D-printing, AI, machine learning, deep learning, analytics, virtual collaboration, automotive design, and computational thinking.
