The online programme comprises 120 hours of video classes and 40 hours of online live classes with the faculty members. Candidates need to complete assignments and final test evaluations. Afterward, they will receive the certificate. The 2nd cohort is scheduled to begin on April 20, 2023.
Further talking about the programme, Devendra Jalihal, chairman, Centre for Outreach and Digital Education (CODE), IIT Madras, said: “We worked with Industry leaders and designed this course to suit Working Professionals who are looking to get an overview of eMobility. We knew then that it was a unique offering with very high value. But none of us in the team expected such high appreciation and enrolment for the program.”
“Both companies and individuals were very happy with the structure, content, and delivery of the program. We now know that we can offer this Program globally across time zones. We had to reduce theory and increase application, and brought Industry Professionals to deliver a significant portion of the content,” the chairman added.
