Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and pure Electric Vehicle (EV) are potential technologies to reduce fuel consumption and emissions in transportation sector. To educate next generation of automotive engineers with strong background in hybrid/electric drive vehicles, Michigan Technological University and partnering institutions General Motors, AVL, Argonne National Laboratory, Woodward, and MathWorks, have built an HEV/EV interdisciplinary program to develop curriculum for the education and outreach in transportation electrification.

Model-based design is emerging as an effective method to solve complicated control problems in automotive and aerospace industries. This paper presents the development of model-based embedded control course curriculum, one of the courses of Michigan Tech HEV/EV interdisciplinary program, to prepare students for their future career in automotive controls. The course goals, the development of teaching materials and associated laboratories, and the design of final project, are discussed. The developed course has been offered in Spring semesters since 2011 and received very positive feedback from students both in Mechanical Engineering – Engineering Mechanics (MEEM) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Departments at Michigan Tech.
