|B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering (Automobile)||MA||4 years|
Mechanical Engineering - Automobile, a branch of Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Automobile Engineering, encompasses and incorporates the elements of Mechanical, Automobile, Electrical, Electronic and Software Engineering pertaining to a Mechanical Engineer. These concepts are applied to design, manufacture and operation of mechanical as well as automotive systems, subsystems and components. Mechanical and Automotive engineers are involved in designing mechanical systems like turbines, aircraft engines, structures of ships and various power plant entities such as boilers, heat exchangers, automotive applications ranging from two wheelers to heavy duty or special purpose vehicles from the conceptualization to manufacturing. Broadly speaking, mechanical automobile engineers are differentiated into three main streams: product engineering, development engineering, and manufacturing engineering.
- Product engineers design components/systems and test them, confirming that it meets all requirements, performs the specified function, meets desired durability under specified load conditions and so on. The product should also satisfy the standards set under the Indian Standards to be used in India.
- Development engineers delve into the attributes of the various mechanical and automobile systems. They are responsible for the clearance of the systems from the desired authorities.
- Manufacturing engineers determine how to manufacture it which involves the process identification and machine management.
Mechanical Engineering is one of the most thriving branches in engineering sector from which graduates are getting everlasting demands in industrial as well as research field. Automobile industry in India has witnessed a rapid growth over the last couple of decades and in the recent years it has also captured the attention of the whole world with some innovative products. It requires skilled and trained manpower with good technical knowledge. There are numerous employment opportunities for qualified professionals and they can select a career in Mechanical as well as Automobile Industry, which can lead to a bright future.
DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING - AUTOMOBILE
According to the data provided by the IBEF (Indian Brand Equity Foundation), the growth of Mechanical and allied industries is steady in the last three financial years which indicates further growth of the industry in the near future. If we analyze the present situation, foreign players are shifting their manufacturing bases to India from the present assembly base which will again enhance the opportunities and increase the GDP. The recent “Make in India” initiative has also boosted this process thereby increasing the job opportunities and job potential for an engineers.
Our major aim is that an engineer should complete his engineering at least with additional knowledge acquisition through trainings and internships. For this, we have created Industry- Institution linked labs where added training will be provided for the students with the endorsement from the firm, thereby improving their scope in the job opportunities as well as improved knowledge to provide support in their future studies and growth. We can surely guarantee that this segment will be an area with more growth rate and employment opportunities in the future.
