A partner of excellencefor oil and gas professional development


  • Engineers and technical staff working in relation with engine departments and needing to know the vocabulary, the physics fundamentals, engine management and calibrations of drivability.
  • To provide participants with a better understanding of engine design, engine management and calibrations to optimize drivability.
Learning Objectives
  • To understand drivability from an engineering perspective.
  • To understand how engine management functions and its impact on drivability.
  • To understand the physics and the parameters used in the engine that improves drivability.
  • To understand the vehicle reactions that cause customer drivability concerns for the engine and vehicle systems and interfaces.
