The Graduate Automotive Technology Education (GATE) Center at the
University of Tennessee, Knoxville has completed its sixth year of operation. During this
period the Center has involved thirteen GATE Fellows and ten GATE Research
Assistants in preparing them to contribute to advanced automotive technologies in the
center's focus area: hybrid drive trains and control systems. Eighteen GATE students
have graduated, and three have completed their course work requirements. Nine faculty
members from three departments in the College of Engineering have been involved in
the GATE Center.
In addition to the impact that the Center has had on the students and faculty
involved, the presence of the center has led to the acquisition of resources that probably
would not have been obtained if the GATE Center had not existed. Significant industry
interaction such as internships, equipment donations, and support for GATE students
has been realized. The value of the total resources brought to the university (including
related research contracts) exceeds $4,000,000.
Problem areas are discussed in the hope that future activities may benefit from
the operation of the current program.
Here’s what’s next.
