About the Programme

The Automobile Engineering Programme caters to train the students to design, develop, manufacture, and repair of automobiles.

The demand for automobile engineering is growing with the expansion of automobile industries and increasing demand for vehicle. With increasing concern for pollution and fuel efficiency, these engineers also set standard of qualities, for example making the vehicle Euro efficient.

The field of activity of a qualified engineer in automobile engineering contains development (construction, calculation and testing), priming of work, fabrication and observation of the functionality of vehicles for street and rails.

The automobile engineers develop car bodies and buildups with aggregates like engines, clutches, gears and steerings.

They have to design according to the postulations of aerodynamics and stylistics, they have to construct and calculate according the postulations of functionality, safety, the dreasing of resources and the economy.

Accordingly, the priority of the study of the automobile engineer relates to activities for development in body design, commercial and special vehicles or the design of motors and transmissions.

Duration : 4 Years
