Together with Industry Forum, at the end of February 2021, HSSMI will be running a series of courses, focusing on electric vehicles, electric motors, as well as lithium-ion battery packs and cells. We will look at their manufacture, design, and end of life opportunities.

The courses are designed with engineers, project managers, and commercial staff in mind. No pre-existing knowledge is required, so the courses are ideal for building up your technical understanding of these topics. Due to the current travel restrictions, the courses will be held online and at a reduced fee of £150 for each course.
