about the course

This unique program is one of the first in the country and aims to address the growing need for skills in EV technology. The syllabus of the program is developed after extensive discussions with leading automotive OEM and Tier-I suppliers.

The unique feature of the program is that it has an extensive laboratory component to ensure that the students get a hands-on feel of the EV technology. Moreover, during the duration of the program, frequent interaction of the students with the industry experts will be arranged. This will enable the students to understand the dynamics and the development of technology happening in the automobile industry.


The electrification of the automobile can be a significant step towards avoiding the consequences of climate change and at the same time, a significant step towards the future competitiveness of our automotive industry. The new study program is designed to address these future topics and help to meet the growing need for engineers. Graduates will be able to use scientific methods and analyses for solving complex problems in both practice and research. The Master’s program offers several optional modules in the fields e-mobility.
In addition to compulsory modules based on mathematical and technical principles as well as interdisciplinary qualifications, application-specific expertise is conveyed in elective modules on different topics.

The amalgamation of students joining using regular category as well as industry-sponsored way will help to improve the qulaity of knowledge transfer

The exchange of knowledge from two different domains during the study of courses and projects will help promote knowledge exchange and articulate concepts leading the students to gain clear perspective about e-mobility.


Industry Demand

Positions with expertise in EVs and related field are running vacant due to lack of professiosnals with required knowledge.

Burning field of research

With the push of nations round the world for e-mobility, there is subtantial increase in number of research projects running in universities related to EVs and it's infrastrucure.


The curriculum of the course involved departments of two different domain viz. Electronics and Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Such collaborations are rare but worth!

Unique of it's kind

The curriculum is designed in consultation as well as consent from both government and private bodies such as NITI Aayog, Ashok Leyland, Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd., Kyoto, Japan, and Tata Motors. It is rare to see a curriculum designed as per requirements of both government and private bodies.

A Master’s level program on Electric Vehicles from premier institutes like IITs is long due. IIT-Guwahati is very well placed to offer this program considering the very hands-on and industry-relevant work the Electric Mobility Lab there has been doing over the years. We have been interacting with this team for the past few years, and their exposure to industry problems and India-specific issues is exceptional. The program, especially the hands-on laboratory part is well-conceived. Our team here in AL has worked closely with the IITG team, and we are happy to have been part of this effort and offering. While the course work will provide the basic introduction to Electric Mobility, given the vast areas to specialize in, the three-semester project is expected to provide a solid grounding in the chosen speciality.

The course is conceptualized with a lot of practical content which I think is the most important aspect of this initiative, so the industry will find it easier to employ these students coming out of IIT-G. The balance between theory, concepts and hands-on experience is another very important aspect of the program. The content has a broad coverage of all the aspects of e-Mobility (technology, business issues, financial aspects, etc.,) so, once finished, the students are ready to either enter the industry life or can even purse advanced research! With the content being most contemporary and relevant to today’s needs, this document compares very well with similar courses being conducted elsewhere – this is on par with the best!

Dr. Karun Malhotra, Murata

After missing the electronics and semi-conductor revolution of the 20th century, India now has a great opportunity to make its mark in the field of power electronics. Everyone in India is now familiar with Electric Vehicles, E-mobility, Solar panels, inverters, etc. but only a few realize that the foundation of all these products is “Power Electronics”. On the other hand, my own experience has shown that technology in itself is not sufficient to create and run a successful business. For that one needs to understand and control the value chain and have a robust business model. With its new syllabus, IITG is tackling the two most important topics: (a) The 360 degree perspective of the e-mobility eco-system and (b) the technology that powers it. I have great hopes from this program and look forward to the day when India will also have its own world-class champion company in power electronics.
