Electric Vehicle Technology


Electric Vehicle Development Technology Certificate Program

There are over 2.6 million hybrid and electric vehicles on the road in the United States. In 2014, manufacturers are offered 60 hybrid electric vehicles, 8 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and 9 fully-electric vehicles. By 2020, the world-wide electric vehicle value chain will likely be greater than $250 billion (Source: World Bank Study) which will drive a corresponding need for a technically capable workforce. Energy prices, environmental concerns and fuel economy targets are driving the demand for hybrid and electric vehicle technicians now and into the future.

Electric Vehicle Development and Repair Certificate Programs

Two Electric Vehicle Technology Certificate programs, one in product development and the other in service, prepare individuals, with the fundamental skills and abilities for careers in these fields. These certificate programs are sequences of technical and professional courses that are industry-focused and designed for workforce preparation. These courses also may apply toward other technical certificates and associate degree programs. The certificate programs are well-suited for those who enjoy working with their hands and innovative technology.
