Stages of the program

This program is divided into 10 stages described as follows:

1- Registration- Registrations for 60 slots are done under this phase on first come first served basis with no reservation quota.

  • Registration Frequency- Registrations are scheduled to be done after every six months i.e. July and January.

2- Registration Fee- ₹15,484/- (Excluding 18% GST).

3- Workshop/Training- From a learning point of view, this program offers 4 intensive yet free workshops/webinars for the registrants.

    • Workshop/Webinar Basics of Automotive Technologies
    • Workshop/Webinar Vehicle Dynamics
    • Workshop/Webinar on the EV
    • Workshop/Webinar on Vehicle Design

4- Project Synopsis- Under this phase, teams need to submit the project synopsis for the purpose of Research Fellowship Program. This must be done in strict compliance to the synopsis format available on EMS.

5- Project Timeline- Project timeline tracks the chronological order of events. These timelines give teams an understanding of a project at just a glance, keeping everyone informed and aligned at every stage of the project. The timeline is composed of a series of tasks, each of which has a due date and duration. Teams need to submit a Gantt Chart that illustrates the project schedule.

6- R&D- Research and development (R&D) includes activities that teams undertake to innovate and introduce the vehicle for the Research Fellowship Program. It is often the first stage in the development process. Maximum time of three months is given to the teams for research, development, testing and validation of ideas to be implemented on the vehicle. This includes the study of relevant technical documentation and various similar vehicles existing in the market.

7- Doucment Submission- In this phase, teams need to submit various reports and documents including:

    • Cost Report
    • Engineering Design Report
    • Other Supporting Documents

Note- Cost and Design Reports must be submitted in accordance to the format available on EMS

8- Design Review- Assessment is done to postulate the much-required review on the work done, reports, cost, and utility of the innovations. A pre-assigned group of technical experts from the EV industry examines the reports and suggests teams the potential changes to be made before vehicle’s manufacturing. This includes the online presentation and interview of the team members.

9- Vehicle Manufacturing- This phase comes after six months from the date of enrolment wherein; teams start manufacturing the vehicle. The fabrication work must be completed within the time period of 4 months.

10- Exposition- Finally, all the registered institutions are invited to an expo where they showcase the re-innovated/upgraded vehicles. They also receive the certificate of excellence, certificate of participation, certificate of appreciation, awards, trophies, etc. according to their performance. This all is done based on the evaluation of their vehicles, reports and interviews, and interactions.
