A vision of the  Mobility Major:

The aim of the mobility major is to prepare students to develop viable transportation solutions for a sustainable, greener, and smarter future. The internal combustion engine is reaching the end of its utility in both intra- and inter-city mobility. Electric vehicle technology is now mature and rapidly improving and scaling every quarter. It has equaled or surpassed fossil-fuelled mobility in terms of performance, range, and operating cost. New infrastructure systems in energy distribution, innovative automotive design, and manufacturing will be necessary to realize the benefits of these technologies. The entire mobility ecosystem in India is migrating to a more sustainable and smart way to move goods and people, and the future lies in these areas.

While pursuing a major in mobility, students will learn about electric propulsion, hybrid electric vehicles, and autonomous vehicles. They will also understand the societal and environmental impact of technological developments. And, the economic and financial implications of electric mobility. They will also learn about connected vehicles and multi-modal mobility- strongly engaging with the emerging convergence between Mobility, Energy, Data, and Communication. Students will be exposed to courses from across disciplines – engineering, energy policy, communication, data science, environmental science, and business.

Manager, Communications

Atria University is a soon-to-be-launched institution that aims to revolutionize higher  education in this country. Yes, we know you’re already rolling your eyes and we know  you’ve probably heard and read it a thousand times before. But, we kid you not, our vision is  to do for education what has never been done before and, in doing so, make skeptics into  believers. If you think that might interest you, read on.

We live in an age of ‘transformation’ where the pace of change is constantly accelerating at  a dizzying pace. In a world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, digital  art, and so on, it is frankly tragic that education and testing still largely languish in an analog  era. To correct this anomaly, a host of luminaries across various fields have come together  to create a ‘university of the future’ in Bengaluru. One which will wipe the slate clean and  completely recreate the educational experience from the ground up.

To achieve this vision, Atria University is building a core team that will be the linchpin of the  march to the future. If you’ve always wondered what might have been had you gotten a  different education and if you’re inspired by the idea of changing the world, you just might  have found your dream role.

 

What we are looking for 

We don’t measure potential in years clocked or the kind of degree you have. We are  scouting for a curious and creative solution-driver who can anchor the processes of internal  and external communication of the University.

  • The ability to assist and support the Head of Communications in the larger  brand- building effort by strategic use of communication and PR.
  • Attention to detail in organizing and executing design projects efficiently. • Ability to work in and manage the uncertainties inevitable in a start-up like  environment.
  • Ability to write compelling content for various target groups.
  • Interest in brand building and the education sector.
