This course provides an in-depth view of the state-of-the-art in all forms of automotive transmission design and development, focusing mostly on current and evolving technologies. The intent is to provide a timely view of the emerging technologies in automotive transmissions destined to be used in the automotive marketplace. Learners can expect to understand the known new technologies along with the focus of research and development. Current designs, the components and sub-systems used, their functional modes, how they operate, and the inter-relationships are addressed in detail. The future of the automatic transmission is also discussed. Learning materials are updated at least annually to keep this course current with the most common and latest transmission systems.
By completing this course, you will be able to identify, recognize or articulate:
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. The material covered in this course is targeted at several design and engineering disciplines:
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 powertrain.
