Who should attend?


    • 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.


  • Advanced
  • This course provides a deeper knowledge and competencies on engine design, management and calibrations in order to optimize drivability.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to understand:
  • drivability from an engineering perspective,
  • how engine management functions and its impact on drivability,
  • the physics and the parameters used in the engine that improves drivability,
  • the vehicle reactions that cause customer drivability concerns for the engine and vehicle systems and interfaces.
