About Automobile Engineering

Ever since motor vehicles came to be, automobile (also known as automotive or vehicle) engineering has gained importance. Automobile engineering deals with the design and creation of vehicles used as means of transportation by road. Essentially, it derived from mechanical engineering. More specifically, it is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, development, manufacturing, production, testing, repairing, control and management of automobiles. It is a combination of different elements of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering, software engineering and safety engineering.

The main areas of application are in car design, operations involving the production of cars, designing of engines and fuel management. To become a capable and skilled automobile engineer, specialized training may be essential.

The major tasks of an automobile engineer are to design, develop, manufacture and test vehicles from the conceptual phase to production phase. It has many areas of specialization such as engine systems, fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, supply chain management, thermodynamics and electronics and control systems.

An understanding of the internal combustion engine, the mechanism of the vehicle chassis, electrical systems, workshop technology, motor transport affairs, and research and design is important.

Automotive engineers can work within a range of roles in the manufacture of cars, motorcycles, vans and other commercial vehicles: design, manufacture, distribution, marketing, sales and after-sales care. While most automotive engineers are employed by vehicle manufacturers, other employers include tyre manufacturers, specialist vehicle design companies and research/test laboratories, motor sports teams and oil/fuel companies. Self-employment via consultancy and contract work can also be an option, though several years of relevant experience may be necessary.


The eligibility for Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) and Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) courses is usually the 10+2 with Science.

In order to be selected for admission, required percentage marks in science subjects should be met, in addition to qualification through engineering competitive exams.

B.Tech in Automobile Engineering:
The B.Tech Automobile engineering course is an undergraduate engineering course, which involves certain aspects of fundamental Automobile engineering and its wider applications in Engineering subjects related to the course. Automobile engineering deals with basic engineering concepts and its application in construction and design of various moving vehicles and also the design of major components such as engines, chassis design, Transmission system, etc along with Structural and solid Analysis of the design. However, the knowledge obtained from this course can be expanded to various other technological applications such as constructing equipment that is deployed in construction sites. B. Tech Automobile engineering syllabus facilitates this stream expansion as it contains subjects enhancing the knowledge of both basic mechanical engineering and the application of the same in construction of vehicles.

The B.Tech Automobile course duration is just like every engineering course of 4 years and it is divided into 8 semesters of study. The subjects are designed in a sequential order to first enhance the candidates with basic engineering concepts and move onto the applied development, construction, calculation, testing, priming of work, fabrication, and observation of the functionality of vehicles for street and rail systems. Knowledge is always unbound when it comes to Automobile engineering. Aspirants who are keen on acquiring in-depth knowledge about Automobile and construction engineering can opt for higher studies in Master of Technology [M. Tech](Automobile Engineering)/ Master in Engineering [M.E] (Automobile engineering) or M.Tech in any specialized course such as Vehicle Dynamics, Autonomous Vehicles, etc in premium universities across India and abroad.
