Relevant Engine Technologies

A 2Day Class

This course provides an in-depth view of the state-of-the-art in internal combustion engine design, development, focusing mostly on current and evolving technologies.  The intent is to provide a timely view of the emerging technologies in internal combustion engines destined to be used in the automotive marketplace.  By maintaining a close working relationship with the industry leaders of technology development and adoption, the instructor equips learners with an understanding of known new technologies as well as the focus of research and development.  Learning materials are updated at least annually to keep this course current with the most common and latest engine technologies. 


Learning Objectives 

By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate: 

  • The current state-of-the-art in internal combustion engine architecture, hardware, control systems and integration schemes 
  • The direction and focus of emerging engine technology 
  • Internal combustion engine technology that is either declining in terms of applicability or continues to remain viable as a possible mainstream replacement for the current systems and hardware 
  • The potential for maturation and adoption of the various technologies presented 
  • How to translate technologies into product statements and requirements as part of considering the future of the various topics illustrated 


Who Should Attend 

The intended audience for this course is powertrain engineers, component suppliers, vehicle platform powertrain development specialists, engineers involved in the application or design of transmissions, or other technical personnel who need to understand the operational theories and functional principles of modern vehicle transmission systems. 



Because this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines, learners should have a B.S. in engineering or related field and preferably a minimum of two years design experience in automotive engine design and development.  The material covered in this course is targeted at a number of design and engineering disciplines; 

  • Design engineers and engineering managers 
  • Vehicle powertrain designers 
  • Component suppliers 
  • Powertrain test and development engineers 



  • Overview of internal combustion engine technologies, fuels and requirements 
  • Fuel injection technologies, strategies and emerging concepts 
  • Valvetrain manipulation technologies, strategies and emerging concepts 
  • Direct injection of gasoline technologies, strategies and emerging concepts 
  • Displacement on demand systems technologies, strategies and emerging concepts 
  • Variable cam and valve timing technologies, strategies and emerging concepts 
  • Variable compression ratio engine technologies, strategies and emerging concepts
