The M. Tech. programme in Advanced Vehicle is a Master’s programme offered to students who are interested in advanced learning and research in the field of automotive engineering with a focus on Electric Vehicles, Intelligence, Connectivity, Hybrid Vehicles and Advance Fuel. Applicants to this programme are expected to already have a strong background in Mechanical, Automobile, Electrical, Control systems and Programming. The programme is spread over 4 semesters for a full-time student. About two-thirds of the credits involve coursework, and the remainder consists of project work. The emphasis is on conducting original research and writing a thesis that reports these results. The programme is flexible enough to allow a student to specialize in any topic of interest by taking elective courses and working on a research project in that area. The program is also intended to have a design project in their first two semesters. 

ACADEMIC FRAMEWORK

The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.

The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.

SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.

The Indian automotive industry has traditionally been a good indicator of how well the economy is doing, particularly in its contribution to its manufacturing output and employment generation. India is the fourth largest automobile manufacturing country in the world and as per the statistics, it will become the third-largest by 2026. It contributes 7.1% of overall GDP and the country is getting the most significant employment from this sector.  With the incentive scheme and the tax benefit provided by India's government, the electric vehicle market is also getting boom. With this advancement in the Indian automotive sector, UPES is introducing M Tech in Advance vehicles. This degree will provide advanced learning in the automotive domain in conventional, electric and hybrid drive. The M. Tech. Advance Vehicles prepares the students to be suitable for various roles in the industry as follows 

  • Automotive Design Engineer 
  • Production Engineer 
  • R&D Engineer 
  • Quality and Assurance Expert 
  • Vehicle Integration Expert 
  • Technical Sales Engineer
