5 Day Proficiency Improvement Programme on Automotive Fuels & Energy


With the ever increasing crude oil prices and the alarming
environmental crisis, use of alternative fuels is no longer a
matter of future: it is a realistic issue of present.
Conventional fuel sources are getting a lot harder to
extract and the environment is also being heavily polluted
by emissions produced by burning petroleum products. It's
time now to reduce degrading the environment further
and the obvious way ahead is through use of alternative
fuels. Addressing these issues, this program is designed to
give an in-depth analysis of fuel products, quality, policy &
storage including alternate energy like Fuel Cells, Electric
Vehicles & Hybrid Vehicles.


On completion of the module, the delegates should be
able to:
n Understand fuel quality & its challenges to meet future
emission norms in India.
n Understand petroleum refining &auto fuel policy.
n Understand CNG & LPG / LNG & biogas technologies.
n Understand regulatory trends for natural gas vehicles.
n Understand design, development & testing of electric
n Understand synthetic fuels &futuristic technologies on
n Understand hydrogen technology & HCNG engine
n Understand fuel cell technology.
n Understand storage methods for fuels.
n Understand recent trends in auto gaseous fuel
n Lead multi disciplinary teams.
n Demonstrate independent learning ability necessary
for conducting professional development.
n Become self-disciplined and self-motivated,
demonstrating personal responsibility in the pursuit of
studies and professional practice.

ARAI, over five decades, has provided its design and
development expertise to the Indian automotive industry,
focusing on the testing and evaluation of components and
systems to meet national and international standards. ARAI
strives to achieve international recognition in these areas. In
keeping with the globalization of economy and business, ARAI
continues to enlarge its scope of services to meet the
requirements of automotive industries around the world. In
addition to utilizing state-of-the-art technology, laboratories and
highly-trained personnel, ARAI recognizes the need to develop a
new generation of engineers to meet the demands of the
automotive industry, not just in India but across the globe.
ARAI ACADEMY is classified into three divisions:
LEARNING CENTRE has embarked upon a programme of building
up human resources by commencing educational programme
(Graduate Post graduate & Doctoral) with specialization in
Automotive Engineering. It has tied up with VIT University
(Vellore), Veltech University (Chennai), College of Engineering
(Pune), University of Alabama (USA), Tennessee Tech university
(USA), Loughborough University (UK) and University of
Braunschweig (Germany).

Experts. PIP gives engineers, faculty and student's knowledge

and technical expertise in a wide range of automotive disciplines.
It helps in understanding system's view point for automotive
design and manufacture, with specific skills in formulating
automotive engineering solutions in terms of their function and
performance, through optional modules.
Based on the present system in universities, credits are proposed
for each module, so that the graduate engineers can attend
various modules and sum-up the credits required for Master's or
Doctoral Programs. Participants also get chance to visit related
laboratories of ARAI and get hands on experience. Certificates
are issued on the basis of attendance & written test conducted at
the end of the programme. We also conduct Training
Programmes through WEBEX and Domain Training Programmes
for Automotive Industry.
Please visit for more information.

KNOWLEDGE CENTRE has collection of around 14,000 books &

standards, 50,000 technical papers and numerous journals,
technical reports and seminar / conference proceedings. It
publishes monthly magazine 'Automotive Abstracts' and supplies
CDs of CMVR Type Approval Handbook and Automotive Industry
Standards (AIS).
TRAINING CENTRE, In line with Post Graduate and Doctoral
Programs conducted by various universities abroad, ARAI
Academy has devised various Proficiency Improvement
