Modern automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering, incorporating 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.
The demand for automobile engineering is growing with the expansion of automobile industries and increasing demand for vehicles. 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 engineer has to 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, and have to construct and calculate according to the postulations of functionality.
According to the priority of the study, the engineer gets activities as an engineer for development in body design, commercial and special vehicles or the design of motors and transmissions.
With the opening up of the Indian economy, foreign multinational companies have set up manufacturing plants in various parts of the country to cater to the demands of the domestic and international markets. The graduates of automobile engineering have bright prospects in manufacturing operations and B&D.
