As E-drive systems specialist are you working on electrical drive systems and the challenges they pose. You are working to develop and maintain e-drive systems for machines and vehicles. The skills demanded among other things of our designers, test engineers and development engineers in the automotive industry.

After the training, you have learned

Electrochemical storage technology, control systems and functions of power electronics, EMC, the challenges it faces in terms of metrology and currents with high frequencies, the laws and regulations governing the business and how best to convey knowledge to colleagues and employees.

The distance structure

The education is full-time (100%) and the student needs to be available during daytime. There are 6 meetings during the education.

Our directorate contains the following companies:

Program objectives

Program objectives

After completing the program, students should have the skills to:
1. describe in detail, explain the design of electrical appliances with electric drive systems for vehicles.
2. detailed account of the function of controlling the electric drive system, power electronics building function and design requirements, and to make the necessary calculations for these.
3. Calculate and dimension cabling and energy storage by the applicable standards and specifications.
4. Apply practical metrology in a critical and analytical way with respect to the instruments’ limitations.
5. Communicate with and lead colleagues and employees work with e-driven system to create a creative and safe workplace.

Distance learning

YrkesAkademin has many distance educations. These programmes suits you who want to study from wherever you want and be more flexible.  You need to have a computer with a web cam, headset and a solid Wi Fi connection.

There are some physical classes that are important to attend. Between the classes, you have contact with your teacher to help you achieve the goals of the education. Full-time studies means that you should study approximately 40 hours a week and it is therefore important to take responsibility and allocate time correctly.
