7 Day Internship on Go-kart Design & Development

7 Day Internship on Go-kart Design & Development


In 07 Days/ 56 Hours, you will be exposed to the intricacies of designing and fabrication of a Go-kart from scratch on an industrial assembly line.

Course curriculum designed and guided by our reputed experts from Formula 1 and Automotive companies like Polaris, Ashok Leyland, Tata, Mahindra etc.


Day 1: Automobile Static Engineering

In this part, we will be discussing static parts of an automobile that how each and every component works:

  • Fundamentals of chassis design, Tub chassis (recently used by Koenigsegg Agera R), Formula-1 chassis, Sports car chassis, Passenger car chassis, Torsional rigidity of chassis, Lite weight materials of chassis
  • Braking system - Hydraulic braking, Wedge braking, Power assistance braking, ABS with EBD
  • Steering system, Hydraulic power steering, Electric steering, Worm & Sector, Four wheels turning  
  • Engine working and fundamentals, Square engines, V cylinder engines, Power economy relations
  • Types of chassis, Braking, Steering, Suspension and their disadvantages and advantages
  • Transmission, Automatic transmission, CVT, Steady-state conditions and Dynamics, Power economy curve
Day 1 & 2: Dynamic Calculations

In this part we will be discussing dynamics of an automobile in deep and discuss how to balance all the components of a vehicle:

• Fundamentals of chassis design - Future vehicles materials technology, Chassis materials, Impact loading, Welding and joining process, Light metals for chassis, Smart materials, Tolerance in designing, Bending strength calculation by using software 
• Braking system - Brake performance parameters, Brake stopping distance calculations, Brake stopping time calculation, Combination valves, ABS with EBD, Brake disc heat dissipation theory, Brake Disc Designing, Braking efficiency, Weigh load transfer, 
• Steering system - Steering dynamics, Four wheel steering mechanism, Turning radius calculations, Critical speed for turning, Oversteering, Under steering, Ackerman principle, Rack and pinion steering, Power steering, EPS, Steering torque, Cater, Camper, Kingpin, Caster trail, Characteristics speed, Under-steer gradient, Cornering equations
• Engine working and fundamentals - Abnormal combustion in spark ignition engines, Gasoline and Diesel additives, Ignition system overview, Ignition process, Ignition timing selection and control, Mixture preparation, Working and explanation of latest technologies like CRDI, MPFI engine and many more
• Transmission fundamentals - Friction clutches torque capability of an axial, Gear theory, Transmission power flows, Synchronizer operation, Van Doorne Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), Gear selection procedure, Transmission matching, selecting the Engine Size and Final drive ratio for maximum speed use of overdrive ratios to improve fuel economy 

Day 2 & 3: CAD Designing

This will be the implementation of the things that we will learn in above two parts:

  • CAD software basic tools, 2D & 3D sketching
  • Chassis designing and stress analysis of each component
  • Customize material profiling, Extrude feature
  • Basic part modeling, sprocket, Go-kart wheel hub, Disc brake, Steering assembly
  • Decaling and rendering of a vehicle
  • Vehicle fabrication steps and technique
Day 4 to 6: Go-kart Development & Fabrication

In this part we will be fabricating the Go-kart from very scratch which all includes:

  • Cutting and Bending of chassis members
  • Welding, Grinding of chassis members
  • Fixtures mounting, Primary members profile making
  • Installation of drivetrain, Rear axle, and Power transmission
  • Engine mounting and it’s tuning
  • Brake bleeding and installation of braking, Steering assembly
  • Wheel assembly, Tire pressure calibration, Cornering ability test


Day 7: Go-kart Testing & Tuning

After complete fabrication, participants will do rigorous testing of the Go-kart and will optimize its performance

  • Acceleration test by participants
  • Brake test by participants
  • Cornering ability test by participants
  • Vehicle endurance testing by participants
  • Quiz for certificate of appreciation & Internship opportunities
  • Career guidance program on "Scope in Automotive Sector"
  • Allotment of Industrial project
  • Competition of fastest disassembly of Go-kart


  • 90% Practical - 10% Theory, learn and experience by doing things rather than cramming the concepts.
  • Learn from the best in the business including former Formula-1 Racing Marshalls.
  • Preparedness for race and design competitions organized by renowned automotive competitions such as BAJA, FORMULA-SAE, Go-Kart, Hybrid Vehicles, etc.
  • "Certificate of Participation” for all participants issued by “ELITE TECHNO GROUPS”, a team of Formula 1 Racing Marshalls, accredited by International organization for Standardisation, United Kingdom (U.K).
  • Top 5 scorer will be rewarded with “Certificate of Appreciation” and will be provided Internship opportunities in top-notch Automotive Companies.

Course Kit

Every Participant will get an E-Course Book on “Automotive Dynamics and Designing” and a DVD containing 32 ebooks, videos on the subsystem of automobile and videos tutorials for further references.


  • The internship is designed for B.E/B.Tech - Automobile, Mechanical, Electronics, Electrical, Production and Industrial engineering students.
  • Diploma Engineers interested in pursuing further studies on the part-time or full-time basis.
  • Automotive enthusiasts (undergrad & passed out’s).  


Rs. 5500/- per participant it Includes Taxes, Registration kit, designing software, vehicle fabrication materials, Certification Cost, Human Resources fee. (no extra charges to participants for any activity during 07

In 07 Days/ 56 Hours, you will be exposed to the intricacies of designing and fabrication of a Go-kart from scratch on an industrial assembly line.
