Automobile engineering or automotive engineering course is the study of manufacturing, designing and operating automobiles such as passenger vehicles, motorcycles, trucks, etc. and their particular engineering subsystems. The course incorporates electrical, mechanical, software electronic and safety elements.

Mechanical Engineering

Students who are having a natural interest in automobiles like cars, motorcycles, buses and for mathematics, mechanics and electronics are preferred in this field. Mechanical Engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering which is extremely technical and students must be organised and systematic in their work propensities. Those who are more creative in their field of mechanics and can come up with innovative solutions to the potential issues and designs are the best suit for the course.

Subjects which are handled in this field of engineering are environmental science and engineering, production technology, applied thermodynamics, mechanics of machines, fluid mechanics and machinery, fuels and lubricants, automotive engine components, automotive diesel engines, automotive electrical systems, automotive materials and metallurgy, automotive transmission, automotive pollution and control, quality control, manufacturing processes and reliability engineering etc.

How to Join

One who wants to join Automobile engineering should pass the qualifying examination with an aggregate score of 50% in physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. After completing the same, the student has to appear for the Joint Entrance Exam Main (JEE - Main) to get admission into one of the top college or universities in India.

Most of the engineering colleges in India offer admission to students based on the JEE Main examination. It is a national level entrance examination done by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in India.
