Top 5% of the class will get a merit certificate. Course completion certificate will be provided to all students who complete the course. You will receive both e-verified and hard copy of your certificates.



Hood Design:

1. In this particular proect you will be working on to design the inner panel of a hood, according to euroncap standards and make sure that the part is manufacturable.
2. You will provide all the necessary reinforcements at the necessary regions and join the outer and inner panel using the proper joining methods.
3. You will also make sure that all the manufacturing requirments are being satisfied for all the cad part that you design.


Fender Drip area Design:

1. In this particular project you will be working on to design the drip area for the given fender, where you will make sure to follow certain dimesnions that are required to be followed for the drip area.
2. In addition to that you will also provide the necessary bead and other embosses to strengthen the component.
3. you will make sure that the output part meets all the tolerances to be satisfied for the deep drawing process. 

Roof Design:

1. In this particular challenge you will develope the ditch area and roof reinforcements.
2. You will also be doing calculations to see if the roof passes the snow load criteria and heat distortion criteria.
3. The number of bow roof rails will also be calcuated from the above calculation.

What will you learn each week?

Vehicle development cycle

This will be an introductory session where the basics of the automobiles and types of car bodies are explained. The complete vehicle development process which will explain the stages crossed by a car before it reaches the customer. The complete 3 years of development activity will be explained.


Basics of Automotive Body In White

This will be an introductory session where the basics of the automotive BiW is taught. The basics of steel and its properties are covered in major, as steel is an important component used in the cars. Steps followed in the selection of the material is discussed. Also, the cross functional teams are explained and the need to co ordinate with them is explained with the master sections and 3D components of the parts for easy and clear understanding.


Design Methodology of a Hood, Fender, Roof and Side Doors

Out of the all BiW components we will focus our attention on the Hood, Fender, Roof, Side and Back doors. The design procedures for all the afore-mentioned parts can be summarized as follows.

  • Design Requirements
  • Functional Requirements
  • Regulations
  • Gap and Flushness requriements
  • Safety requirements


Case study - Converting - RUECKWANDTUER INNERPANEL

In this, we will present a real life scenario where the effect of converting an innerpanel from aluminum cast to Steel Deep Draw part will be presented. Here is a quick summary of this case. The following design parameters were identified as critical and hence were fully described:

  • Seal Surface Width was the same as the aluminum lift gate
  • Tail gate outer parting was maintaiend the same
  • Lift gate thickness was modified
  • Gap and flushness were maintained
When you enroll in this course, you will be able to clearly understand these design parameters and the descisions that were made. In this case study, the design guidelines were set through a series of CAE simulations.

Design of key Mechanism - Lock and Striker

In this module you will first learn the anatomy of a Locker and Striker Mechanism. In order to be a successfull product development engineer, it is very important to understand in detail the development process and design requirements for even the tiniest components. In this module, we will be analyzing the locker and striker mechanism in detail.


Process and challenges with supplier manufactured parts

In this module we will look at two case studies. Both of these studies focusses on supplier manufacturing practices. We will discuss the design challenges faced by two Asian Automotive suppliers and then go over the solution methodologies
