Khaligh receives NSF TUES grant for electric vehicles laboratory

Assistant Professor Alireza Khaligh (ECE/ISR) is a co-PI on a two-year, $199K National Science Foundation Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics(TUES) grant and an award from the University of Maryland Sustainability Fund to develop an educational laboratory on hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

This laboratory will be used to educate and train students on the fundamentals of electric and hybrid electric vehicles, and expose them to this rapidly developing technology. It will provide a fundamentals-based, application-oriented education that prepares students for industry and R&D-oriented careers.

Umamaheshwar Krishnamurthy at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) is the principal investigator on the NSF grant. The project employs a strategy of first implementing a new course at IIT and then transferring it to the University of Maryland. This strategy is providing an important opportunity to understand how the material transfers to another educational environment.
