The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, conducted a Faculty Development Program from Electric Vehicles on March 23 - 24, 2019.

The main objective of the FDP was to introduce advanced academic research as well as industry practices in the field of electric vehicle development to amrita faculty and PhD/PG students. Around 60 participants were attended the FDP. The sessions were handled by industrial experts from L&T, Bosch, ABB, Linkwell and academic experts from IIT Delhi, Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore.

The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE), School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, has received a research grant from DHI, Government of India, to develop communication infrastructure in the electric vehicle supply equipment. The project is on EV charging components development and is led by IIT Delhi and partnered Thapar University and Greenmile, an EV industry. Two other industries Linkwell, Hyderabad and Vexcube. Palakkad collaborate with Dept. of EEE, Amrita in the task. This background has prompted in conducting the FDP at Amrita to expose Amrita faculty members, who are presently involved in or aspiring to be in, teaching and research of EV related topics.
