About this course

Electric vehicles are the future of transportation. Electric mobility has become an essential part of the energy transition, and will imply significant changes for vehicle manufacturers, governments, companies and individuals.

If you are interested in learning about the electric vehicle technology and how it can work for your business or create societal impact, then this is the course for you.
