Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

AUTE 3290U – Powertrain Design

This course introduces the fundamental design principles, general design procedures, typical constructional arrangements, and basic parameter selection of essential components and subsystems of automotive powertrains. Topics covered include evaluation of various power plant and driveline characteristics on vehicle acceleration performance and fuel economy, manual transmission design, automatic transmission design. The principles of electrical and hybrid electrical vehicle propulsion systems will also be introduced. Students will develop the ability to design typical automotive powertrain components and subsystems through selecting appropriate constructions and determining basic design variables based on design principles, physical laws, legislations, criteria and constraints. Some design experience will be gained by completing required laboratory reports and design projects.
