About Higher Education Initiative (HEI)

KPIT’s Higher Education Initiative (HEI) is to encourage KPIT Full Time Employees (FTE) for continuing education, leading to Master’s Degree from reputed Indian and Overseas Universities. This is to enable employees to acquire higher professional knowledge in areas of their interest and/or those that align with the growing business needs of the organization, including Product Engineering, Information Technology, and Management education and associated fields.

Collaboration with Coventry University

Currently, we have collaborated with Coventry University (UK) for two programs, namely

M.Tech. in Automotive Electronics

Automotive Dynamics

The aim of this module is to give an overview of the fundamental theories relating to vehicle dynamics of four wheeled ground vehicles.
The module will work from the ground up looking into the role of tyres and suspensions and the impact they have on the vehicle respond. The key areas considered in this module in terms of the vehicle response will focus on the areas of ride and lateral response (handling). The module will discuss fundamental theories as well as basic models to ascertain the typical system responses and give an overview of how design criteria need to be managed in a vehicle set-up.

Linear Control Engineering

Linear Control Engineering serves to provide an introduction to the underlying control system design tools
which support aspects of Control Engineering encountered throughout the Programme.

Embedded Systems Programming

The module aims to provide students with practical experience in the programming of real-time embedded
systems including analysis, design and implementation of appropriate computer programs. Analysis and design will be founded on object-oriented (OO) concepts and use of the Unified Modelling Language (UML). Programs will be implemented on a microprocessor system in an appropriate programming language. The module is intended for students with some programming experience (ideally any of C, C++, Java or similar). There will be a substantial hands-on content involving the programming of a microcontroller and incorporating suitable software tools. drive.google.

Advanced Automotive Electronics

This module aims to provide advanced knowledge and skills of electronics necessary for students to automotive industry.
This module covers the sensor and measurement theory, communication and informatic technologies, architecture of electrical and electronics systems used in modern vehicles. The overall aim of the module is to provide students a focused interdisciplinary knowledge that encompasses important elements including sensors and actuators developed for measurement and control of modern vehicles, autonomous systems for environment awareness, CAN bus for fault diagnoses and in-vehicle data communication, Electromagnetic Compatibility and Electronic systems reliability.
Multisim simulations are adopted to help students to comprehend the teaching contents and to design basic measurement systems. The simulation including the analysis of characteristics of sensors and measurement systems, noise cancellation of signal, Analog-to-digital conversion. Assessment requires students to apply the concepts and knowledge to design a real measurement project.
