Automobile Engineering, also known as Automotive Engineering, is the study of designing, operating and manufacturing automobiles and their respective subsystems such as  buses, cars and trucks.

An Automobile Engineer specializes in designing, testing and developing vehicles and their components from the first concept stages to final production. As the vehicle or product will continue to require constant improvement even after being launched on the market, responding to customer feedback and improving the  vehicle  is  a  vital  task  and  duty   of  an  Automobile  Engineer.

Those who have elected to study Automobile Engineering may progress into a variety of fields and disciplines such as aerodynamics, alternative fuels, chassis, electronics, emissions, ergonomics, manufacturing, materials, motorsport, powertrain, rapid prototyping, vehicle and pedestrian safety or supply chain management. It is the responsibility of an Automobile Engineer to create and maintain high  standards  of  automobiles  through  the  use  of  traditional  methods  and  state-of-the-art technology.


  • To develop an established institution of Automobile Engineering which will become the center of quality standardisation and academics including research. Students will be nurtured to become innovative and versatile through world class technology, high quality teaching, ongoing research activities and ample opportunity  to excel.
  • To develop well known delighted quality centre of Automobile Engineering in academics with the world class technology for its realistic curriculum, high quality teaching, research activities and providing ample opportunities  to nurture the innovative and versatile elements in the students.


To instruct students of Automobile Engineering in their field's recent technological developments through the use of world class learning and research facilities. Furthermore, to provide every opportunity to harness the individual enthusiasm, intelligence and innovation of every student to form a team  capable of undertaking and complete Automobile Engineering projects.

Program Educational Objectives

  • Every student to develop a sound fundamental knowledge of maths, science and engineering.
