This resource contains a PowerPoint presentation delivered by Doug Fertuck of the CAAT at the Michigan Electric Vehicle Show and Rally on Jun 7, 2014, at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, MI. This annual show is a public event targeted at electric vehicle (EV) owners and those considering ownership of a plug-in EV. The show offered the display of a wide variety of EVs and related products, the opportunity to discuss the experience of owning EVs with experts and other owners, test drives of many of the available EVs, and a session featuring speakers on several topics and a panel to answer the questions of those in attendance. During the panel session at the event, Doug Fertuck of the CAAT delivered the presentation included in this resource. The presentation discusses classifications of EVs, the many pros and cons of EV ownership, and EV market trends. Also included is the agenda from the event.
This free webinar was presented on October 2, 2014, anddiscussed how the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT) can support keeping your automotive, electronics, and IT curricula up-to-date. The CAAT's recent renewal through 2017 as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) Center includes changes in its technical scope, adding new technologies: vehicle lightweight design and automated vehicles. These presentations documented the need for improved curricula in these technical areas. The CAAT also continues to focus on vehicle electrification and propulsion systems. In addition, the webinar included highlights from the 2014 CAAT Conference, held earlier this year, which addressed the future of automotive technology as presented by several well-known industry experts.As part of the webinar, we solicited proposals to apply for the additional seed funding the CAAT now controls to develop curricula in these subjects. The seed funding portion of the agenda included brief presentations from two current seed funding project developers so that potential applicants can understand better the types of projects suitable for seed funding support.
This resource contains a chart describing the components of electrified vehicle systems based on the vehicle drive system. Vehicle drive systems in the chart include conventional internal combustion engine, start/stop, mild hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), medium HEV, full HEV, plug-in series HEV, and battery electric vehicle. The chart is provided in both .jpg and .ppt (PowerPoint) formats.
This resource contains a PowerPoint presentation delivered by Doug Fertuck of the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT) at the 2014 Michigan Association of Continuing Education and Training (MACET) Summer Conference on August 1, 2014. Discussed in the presentation is how the CAAT provides curricula in advanced automotive engineering technology for middle-skill technicians by working closely with industry to identify future education and training requirements, funding projects to develop new curricula demanded by industry, and housing and disseminating the latest curricula to schools.
This resource contains a webinar presented by the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT), on April 17, 2014. It discusses how the CAAT provides curricula in advanced automotive and engineering technology for middle-skill technicians.
This presentation was delivered by the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT) during a breakout session on February 13 at the 2014 Michigan Career Education Conference. Discussed in the presentation is the CAAT's relationship with Macomb Community College and their automotive programs, Michigan's advantage to support advanced automotive technology development, CAAT's strategic priorities, current and future automotive technologies, fuel economy standards, seed funding, and more.

It is attended mainly by administrators, various educators, industry professionals, and business/community partners.
This paper was developed by Dr. Yeh, Dr. Liao, and Joe Petrosky from the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT) and was presented at the 120th American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference and Exposition on June 24, 2013. The objective of the paper is to review the education and training programs provided by the CAAT's University-Community College Partnership between Macomb Community College and Wayne State University in meeting industry needs for future workers in advanced automotive technology. Discussed within the paper is the increasing need for trained automotive engineers, engineering technologists, and technicians to support the entire product lifecycle of advanced automotive technologies, the CAAT's response to these needs which includes strengthening communications with industry to clearly define future workforce requirements, and developing and offering technologically progressive training programs, and the funding used to create these training programs, partnerships, and curriculum reform. The paper received ASEE's Engineering Technology Division Best Paper Award in 2013.
