SPECIALISATION IN AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING

Program Objectives

Automotive Engineering is concerned with the life-cycle support (including design, manufacture, performance and durability testing) of vehicles; from road and off-road vehicles to race cars, vans and trucks. A key challenge for Automotive Engineers today is to design sustainable vehicles that meet ever-increasing safety and performance standards in a cost-effective way. In order to do this, you need to be able to embrace a wide range of fundamental and more specialist engineering skills, as well as being aware of the commercial implications that impinge on the design and production processes.

There is also the opportunity to go for Industry trained courses, or work on the Formula student race car, Supermileage Vehicle, Baja Vehicle and which are a big attraction for this course as well as providing you with an excellent chance to put theory into practice. Our Industry connections help you to integrate the knowledge with the relevant automobile OEM’s, IT and Design, or component manufacturing companies like Tata Motors, Maruti, Escorts, Tata Technologies, Mahindra & Mahindra, Infosys, Wipro, Dassault Systemes and many more.

Program Contents and Academic Framework

Students interested in the field of Automotives complete the first two years of Mechanical Engineering and then focus exclusively on automotive engineering. The program lays special emphasis on: Basics of Automotives / Automotive Material and Component Testing / Automotive Chassis Engineering / Automotive Driveline / Vehicle Dynamics and Analysis / Automotive Electronics / Fuels and Combustion / Emissions and Safety Standards

Cutting Edge Laboratories & Facilities

We have world class labs including:

  • Automotive Chasis & Components Lab
  • Fuel Testing Lab
  • Automotive Electronics Lab
  • LADDER: Design & Manufacturing Lab
  • Vehicle Testing Lab
  • 3D Scanning and Reverse Engineering Lab
Careers Opportunities

We have leading mechanical and automotive companies visiting our campus regularly for placement activities. Our students have also obtained placements at leading companies such as Tata Motors, Maruti, Mahindra & Mahindra and many more.

INTRODUCTION TO HYBRID & ELECTRIC VEHICLES

For students who have opted for specialisation in Automotive Engineering, we would have special module on introduction to Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.

In today’s world internal combustion engine is a leading prime mover for variety of applications. Also engine designers are striving for its maximum efficiency and minimum pollution. Stringent emission norms also pushing for its design modifications. Recently we shifted from BS III to BS IV and in 2020 BS VI will be implemented. This also increases the scope for engine modifications and after treatment systems. All of us are aware that hybrid and electric are the future vehicles due to their multiple benefits. But its technology is under development and also costly so that it has limited use. This course is a blend of current technology and the future technology as far as the automobile prime movers are concerned. The objectives of the course are knowing the latest Engine technology and looking for future technology to meet the stringent Emission norms (BS IV to BS VI) and making the students familiar with Hybrid and Electric Technology which will be the future prime movers of the Automotive sector.

Program Objectives:
  • Knowing the latest Engine technology and looking for future technology to meet the stringent Emission norms (BS IV and BS VI)
  • Making the students familiar with Hybrid and Electric Technology which will be the future prime movers of the Automobile
Program Learning Outcome

After completing the course the students will be able to:

  • Architect automobile powered with hybrid/electric and efficient engines
  • Compare analyze and design various hybrid and electric vehicles technologies
  • Analyze Engine performance and design engine and its related systems
  • Select, implement and analyze the performance of the various engine management systems
  • Implement and analyze the future technologies for the engine
  • Simulate the engines and hybrid vehicles
