Automotive Engineering Training
Analysts agree that automotive engineering and the automotive industry in general are set for global growth over the next decade.
Automotive engineers play a crucial roles in designing cleaner and more efficient vehicles to address environmental challenges, while urbanization is driving a need for better transport solutions.
One area automotive engineering has focused on in recent years is moving away from the internal combustion engine (ICE) in favor of an all-electric fleet. This has been made possible by engineering improvement in batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles.
This refinement has been an ongoing process with many layers. Currently, Lithium-ion batteries are typically the best batteries for electric vehicles (EVs), although you can still find other types of batteries such as nickel-metal hydride, lead-acid and ultracapacitors.
Lithium-ion batteries offer the highest energy density in the rechargeable-battery market (100-265 Wh/kg). This makes charging a lithium-ion battery easier, faster and long-lasting. This also makes for a more powerful battery overall.
Often, automotive engineering is divided into three broad groups:
- Design and development
- Manufacturing and production
- Quality and cost
These groups are responsible for assorted stages of a part’s lifecycle. But there also is crossover in that the engineers in the different groups need to communicate with one another. In other words, each team needs to work consistently with the others to make sure that the part or vehicle for the customer can get on the road.
The automotive engineers in manufacturing also need to work with the quality department to ensure that the process they designed is repeatable and stable.
Like so many other areas of technology, automotive engineering is evolving.
Digitization, increasing automation, and new business models have revolutionized automotive engineering giving rise to advances in diverse mobility, autonomous driving, electrification, and connectivity.
One study shows that up to 15% of new cars sold in 2030 could be fully autonomous. Additionally, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are expected to play a crucial role in preparing regulators, consumers, and corporations for the medium-term reality of cars taking over control from drivers.
And another thing: The automotive engineering sector has been one of the most innovative.
Keeping pace with that distinction, automotive engineers have now figured out how to incorporate the cannabis plant into legitimate operations.
Cannabis is now being used as a fuel, additive, and material for a motor vehicle’s parts and components. An example of this would be hemp-based composites being used to make car parts that are lighter and stronger.
This is happening because cannabis is a sustainable crop that can be used to create biofuel. Biofuel created from the cannabis plant is environmentally friendly and a renewable source of energy.
