AbstractThe focus of this module is on understanding electrification technology and their practical application in multiple industries.
ObjectiveParticipants will understand the opportunities and challenges of the electrification of different sectors (e.g. transportation, buildings, industry).
ContentThis course takes a case study approach to look at how electrification is currently impacting products and technology use in manufacturing, electronics, automotive/ transport, building construction and facilities management. Some policy and regulatory elements may be discussed to provide context, but the focus is on understanding the technical and practical aspects of implementation. The technical results that can be expected will be discussed in terms of power availability and security, energy efficiency, etc. as well as how electrification supports other potential technical goals such as digitalization and automation.
Prerequisites / NoticeMAS AT participants must have successfully completed CAS 1 and 2 in order to enrol.

Non-MAS applicants must satisfy the following requirements:
- Demonstrated managerial experience working with technology companies or industries
- Good knowledge of English
- ETH recognized Master’s degree*

CAS ATE applications will be reviewed by the Admission Committee of the Certificate Programme. The final decision is communicated in writing.

* For non-MAS applicants, preference may be given to applicants with technical degrees or demonstrated practical knowledge in a relevant field for the purpose of maintaining a higher level of technical discussion.
