Graduate students

Fellowships: This project provides 8 H3CoE Research Fellowships, and industry-driven/funded research projects, to create H3CoE student research opportunities focused on solving challenges, and enabling opportunities, unique to medium/heavy-duty hybrid vehicles – with examples including:
  • Pareto-optimal design of electric machinery for medium/heavy-duty hybrids
  • High density power electronics for medium/heavy-duty hybrids
  • Diesel engine and after treatment optimization for medium/heavy-duty hybrids
  • Design and control of hydrostatic and power-split based hydraulic hybrids

H3CoE fellows will present posters during twice per year poster show, and will work with faculty to deliver a yearly Medium/Heavy-Duty Hybrids Workshop. These H3CoE Fellows will also give monthly update presentations to all H3CoE students and faculty. In addition, H3CoE fellows will be required to complete at least one internship experience at one of the partner companies. Ultimately, H3CoE industrial partners will enable a direct route for graduates of the H3CoE to find employment to further translate the impact of their research contributions.

Certificate  programs: Engineering graduate students have an opportunity to earn a Hybrid Vehicle Systems Certificate. See link for more.
