By Staff Report

Aug. 14, 2009

The Engineering Society of Detroit is teaming up with AVL and Michigan Technological University to offer a course to help up to 100 automotive engineers prepare for the shift to hybrid vehicle technologies.

Based in Plymouth, Michigan, AVL is a developer of powertrains and vehicle simulation and test systems.

Michigan Works will provide qualified engineers with a full scholarship to cover the cost of the one-semester, three-credit, graduate-level class, which will focus on advanced propulsion for hybrid vehicles with a concentration in battery technologies.

The Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth and the Michigan Academy for Green Mobility are sponsoring the course.

Only current or displaced automotive engineers with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering are eligible to apply.
