Electric Vehicle Industries MOOC 0392

Massive Open Online Courses Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

​This course builds on the basics of electric vehicle knowledge and explores topics around developing industries that exist to support electric vehicles from manufacturing to repair to recycling. The course is assembled with lived experience from BCIT's Applied Research, School of Transportation and industry partners, as well as with survey data from BCIT's nationwide survey around barriers to EV adoption. We take a deeper look into the vehicle manufacturing processes, the life of an EV battery, battery repair and reuse opportunities, battery recycling processes, and the transitioning automotive support sectors. The goal of this course is to highlight that while during this technological shift some industries will be challenged, but also to highlight the developing opportunities for those looking to upskill or reskill and support those planning to future proof their career trajectories or business ventures. ​ *Note: Thank you for your interest in a BCIT – Free Online Learning course.
