B Tech in Electrical Engineering (Major: E-Vehicle Technology)

Why B Tech @ Electrical Engineering (Major: E-Vehicle Technology)

In recent years, there has been a significant global shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly transportation solutions. This transition has led to a surge in the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and related technologies. As a result, the field of e-vehicle technology has emerged as a promising and rapidly evolving sector, offering numerous career opportunities for individuals with expertise in this domain.

Electric Vehicles, including a range of automotive technologies and models that allow drivers to “plug in” to the electric grid for power, are critical to the nation’s economic, environmental, and national security goals. By relying on domestic electricity production, electric vehicles cut air pollution and boost our economy. But major challenges need to be addresses by future E-vehicles Engineer to solve reduce consumer costs, set up new technology for rapid charging, and raise awareness about the vehicles’ environmental and economic benefits.

Benefits of Pursuing this Course at RGIPT

RGIPT has a strong interest in promoting the adoption of electric vehicles, based on the benefits to the economy, environment, and quality of life. By pursuing a B.Tech degree in Electrical Engineering, Major in e-vehicle technology, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of electric vehicles, their components, and the underlying technologies that power them. The curriculum typically covers subjects such as battery technology, power electronics, electric motor drives, control systems, charging infrastructure, and energy management. Through this course students will understand concepts of electric motors, fuel cells, and electric drive trains as well as electric vehicle batteries, with a focus on lithium-ion batteries and new battery technology. Along with the E-vehicle concepts, all the necessary subjects of Electrical Engineering are included in the curriculum which make them eligible to pursue GATE, IES, and other PSUs.

Career Prospects

The career prospects for e-vehicle technology are highly promising. Governments around the world are implementing stricter emissions regulations and offering incentives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles. Major automobile manufacturers are investing heavily in electric vehicle production and research, indicating a long-term commitment to e-mobility. This growing market demand for EVs is expected to generate a wide range of career opportunities in various sectors, including automotive companies, battery manufacturers, renewable energy firms, charging infrastructure providers, and research institutions.

The growth of the electric vehicles industry is evident by the increasing number of electric vehicles purchased over the past decade, as well as new models being introduced by several manufacturers this year in India.
