The US-based Altair, a global technology company providing solutions in product development, high-performance computing and data intelligence, has signed a MoU with College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP). CoEP is a top-tier institute in India that boasts a 165-year culture of academic excellence, scientific breakthroughs and high-tech innovation.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) establishes cooperation between the entities to establish a ‘CoEP – Altair Centre of Excellence on Electric-Mobility’ at the CoEP campus. It will enable more than 60 engineers to work simultaneously on electric mobility applications. The CoEP will conduct formal PG-diploma courses as part of the student curriculum while Altair will act as the technology partner, providing students with simulation tools and course programming focused on electric mobility.

The one-year full-time PG-diploma will include courses in energy storage systems for battery management, a bridge course in electric and mechanical disciplines, vehicle dynamics and traction, sensors and controls in electric vehicles, IoT and vehicle communication followed by hands-on exposure to industrial in-plant training.

Dr Bharatkumar Bhagatraj Ahuja, Director, CoEP said, “Electric mobility has always been the first choice wherever electricity has been available for long distances in trains, for short distances in trams or subways, and even within buildings in elevators and escalators. Electric mobility is therefore a focus area in environmental, economic and social terms. We are happy to have Altair as our industry partner to drive the need of trained technical manpower for the country in this domain.”

Vishwanath Rao, MD, Altair, said, “We are happy to collaborate with this prestigious institution. As governments push for early adoption of electric vehicles, the automotive industry is in need of talent with knowledge and skills across multiple engineering disciplines. This Centre of Excellence on electric vehicles addresses this need and brings about cross-disciplinary knowledge clubbed with the latest in simulation technology used by global electric vehicle manufacturers.”
