Advanced Powertrain Systems Overview

students working with Dr. Filipi

There are four strategic research areas within advanced powertrains: advanced engine concepts, powertrain integration/flexible drivelines, hybrid propulsion and electrification, and connectivity.

Students who chose to specialize in this area will look at a number of topics related to reducing the environmental impact of ground vehicles. This includes plug-in hybrid vehicles, new vehicle architecture using lightweight materials, hybrid electric vehicles, energy conversion and storage.
