Continuing Education Short Courses
Preparatory short courses provide non-credit, self-paced refresher material to prepare you to successfully complete the graduate-level automotive engineering courses. If you need to brush up on the Matlab software used in the automotive credit courses, or if you need to review linear systems theory, CAR prep short courses provide a flexible, elearning solution.
The newest short course, Linear Systems Theory, cover concepts in state methods of analysis and design of linear dynamical systems, coordinate transformations and tools of advanced linear algebra, controllability and observability, pole placement via state feedback and state estimation for deterministic models.
Cost for the preparatory short courses range from $750 for an 8-hr./full day to $1295 for a 16-hr./two-day short course.
Non-credit, self-paced short courses are available on a variety of Advanced Propulsion topics such as alternative fuels, electrical storage systems, power electronics for automotive applications, and Matlab for data analysis. New short courses in lightweight design and SIL-HIL techniques for automotive control development have been added.
Cost of the Advanced Propulsion short courses range from $700-$900, depending on the length of the short course.
- Energy Conversion & Storage Systems for Electromobility (Live Short Course)
- Lightweight Design Fundamentals
- Matlab for Data Analysis & Calibration
- Power Electronics for Automotive Applications
- SIL & HIL Techniques for Automotive Control Development
- System Integration, Simulation and Energy Management of HEVs
- Power Electronics Fundamentals
Non-credit, self-paced short courses focused on energy topics are available in the areas of battery composition and safety, electrical storage systems and power electronics.
Cost of the short courses range from $600-$800, depending on the length of the short course.
These non-credit, self-paced short courses on powertrain topics such as internal combustion and diesel engines are available in a distance format. Also available is a new short course on Automotive HVAC.
The cost of the powertrain short courses range from $600-$750 depending on the length of the short course.
CAR offers non-credit, self-paced short courses on Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH).
The cost of NVH seminars are $750 per short course.
