About Amal Jyothi College of Engineering
Amal Jyothi College of Engineering, Kanjirappally, (AJCE) was founded in 2001 and has been managed by the Catholic Diocese of Kanjirappally. It is steered by a governing body, a board of governors and an Advisory Board comprising senior scientists, engineers and renowned educationalists. Amal Jyothi is nestled in a mildly undulating 65-acre expanse in the midst of a verdant landscape of the Western Ghats. The busy Kanjirappally–Erumeli-Sabarimala state highway borders the campus on one side. The College is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for teaching, internship, skill development, project work, entrepreneurship, research and consultancy. Amal Jyothi is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, and of affiliated with APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University, Kerala. We are the first new generation engineering college in Kerala to secure the much-coveted accreditation with A-Grade by NAAC under the UGC, Govt. of India. Amal Jyothi is also the first new generation engineering college in Kerala to secure NBA accreditation for prime departments.

E-mobility is an abbreviation of electric mobility and is a general term used to describe the principles and concepts of utilising electric powered technologies. E-mobility moves away from existing carbon-emitting fossil fuels to using energy from electrical power sources through external charging capability. This term represents broad-reaching changes in the range of available vehicles, battery developments, government subsidy programs, and lightweight automotive construction initiatives. Moreover, e-mobility also includes industrial sectors such as battery producers, vehicle manufacturers, their component suppliers and energy suppliers. Furthermore, it describes the radical change in the mobility landscape-shared mobility, which encourages increased efficiency of travel mobility through infrastructure sharing
In short, electromobility describes the path to a sustainable and efficient vehicle drive, embedded in a new and all-encompassing transport strategy. E-mobility has become increasingly technically available in recent years due to factors such as falling battery prices, advances in alternative fuels and technological developments such as electronic motor innovations and improvements in energy density in batteries. In addition, e-mobility has received a real surge in popularity due to factors such as a public and governmental desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and concerns over oil dependency and potential price rises of oil.
SCOPE OF THE FDP
The objective of this faculty development program is to give an insight into the nuances of e-mobility including the power train, motors, power electronics, storage technologies, energy management schemes and charging infrastructure. The mechanical aspect of electrical vehicles such as air-conditioning, lubrication and battery thermal management is also included in this program. Two sessions are planned, to give a fundamental idea about the simulation of electric vehicles.
Any faculty member of an affiliated college under APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University, Trivandrum, Kerala, who is passionate about electric vehicles can participate in the program. The resource persons are from various national academic & research institutions such as IITs, NITs, and C-DAC Thiruvananthapuram. Sessions from industry personnel are also included.
At the end of this faculty development program, participants will develop a deeper knowledge in the areas of:
- Electric and hybrid electric vehicle powertrain
- Electric machines and control
- Power electronics for electric vehicles
- Storage systems
- Charging infrastructure
- Mechanical engineering aspects of EVs like
battery thermal management.
- Fundamentals of EV simulation
