TS Srinivasan Centre for Automotive Research

TCE and TVS Motor are jointly desirous of developing a industry supported curriculum program and offer the same to the deserving students.
A Memorandum of understanding was signed between TCE and TVSM on 24 June.2010 with the objective of fostering resource development between two institutions.

The objective of the TSS CAR is to

  • Provide infrastructure for hands on experience (academic projects and collegiate events) in automotive product engineering in an interdisciplinary and  collaborative environment
  • Enable implementation of CDIO (Conceive – Design – Implement – Operate) curriculum as a member of the consortium
  • Enable faculty to take up Consulting projects with industry and carry out Academic research

TSS CAR encompass the following five centers to meet the above objectives:

  1. Automotive discovery center
  2. Product engineering lab
  3. Product build lab
  4. Electric Vehicle lab
  5. Product reliability lab
