Automobile Engineering

Modern automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering which incorporates elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, buses and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems. Automotive engineers are involved in almost every aspect of designing cars and trucks, from the initial concepts right through to manufacturing them. Broadly speaking, automotive engineers are separated into three main streams: product engineering, development engineering and manufacturing engineering.

The automobile industry in India has witnessed a rapid growth over the last couple of decades and in recent years it has also captured the attention of the whole world with some innovative products. It includes manufacturing two-wheeler, passenger cars, trucks, tractors, defense vehicles and buses. It requires skilled and trained manpower with good technical knowledge. There are plenty of employment opportunities for qualified professionals and they can select a career in Automobile Industry, which can lead to a bright future.
