2 days MOT/EVOLMOT-E
- Engineers and technical staff wishing an update of the technical evolution: new combustion processes, regulation reinforcement, fuel economy improvement. People working at OEM as well as automotive suppliers.
- This course provides a deeper knowledge on the technical evolutions of passenger car combustion engines and the reasons for such evolutions. It may be very useful for
- automotive suppliers needing an up-to-date overview of the engine world for passenger cars as well as for commercial vehicles. It delivers the keys of the specifications they obtain from theirs customers.
- Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- know current and future evolutions of SI and Diesel engines,
- understand the physics that have led to the adopted solutions,
- apply technical solutions in the context of engine design,
- competently exchange between manufacturers and suppliers.
- No prerequisites for this course.
