Independent Study of NVH in Electrical or Automated Vehicles

Short Course Description

This self-paced short course is designed to suit the individual needs of each student. Topics may range from sources and paths in electrical, hybrid or automated vehicles. 

Initial consultation with Prof. Singh will lead to a well-defined, independent study topic. A report is required to complete the requirement of this short course.

Completion of ME7261 and ME7263 or permission of Professor Singh is required.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
