This idea is quite simple. We need electrical cars because our future depends on it. Therefore why not let the experts. The car manufacturers cooperate with MOOC providers like EDX. Delivering high quality advanced civil engineering courses online to the public and students. Maybe we have students with great innovative imagination who are pursuing career paths in business that really could be exceptional engineers. With online education they would quickly know.
This idea will keep the education current. Build an engineering based appreciation of the car and promote the industry.
