Course OverviewModern automotive industries need experts in vehicle design and manufacture. With this in mind, the Department of Automobile Engineering was started during the academic year 2013-2014 offering B.E. degree programme in Automobile Engineering with sanctioned intake of 60. The department has highly-qualified and well-experienced faculty and staff members of proven ability and administrative skills. Keeping in view of the demand for automobile engineers the department has a vision to enrich the knowledge of students and update the updated technology of automobile engineering. The department has well equipped laboratories that cater to the needs of the students. We are providing an excellent exposure to like well equipped laboratories & workshops through the modern equipments such as Automotive Electronics Laboratory, a computerized Two-wheeler engine test rig, modern automotive engine and chassis components etc.
Among the various activities of the department, the SAE stands out with its many guest lectures by eminent personalities from academic and industries. In addition, frequent industrial visits to renowned industries are one of the key activities of SAE. The SAE also plays a very important role in mobilizing student participation by conducting various quiz competitions and seminars. The department has a separate library with a collection of various journals, SAE magazines and books. An annual AUTO EXPO exhibition organized by the department exhibits most of the Classical Vehicles, Modern Cars, Race Cars and also Students Innovations. The Automobile Engineering Association (AEA) is actively conducting various Traffic Awareness programmes, Vehicle Maintenance, and Servicing programmes, Automobile Pollution check up camps, etc.
The department maintains a close liaison with a number of Universities and Industries in and out of the country through faculty research and collaborative projects.
The department offers consultancy services in Chassis Design, Engine Design, FEA analysis, and CFD simulations. In the near future, the department aims to start exhaust gas analyzer, Vehicle performance Testing and a Research center for Alternate Fuels
