About The Depatment

The Department of Automobile Engineering was established in academic the year 2012.Keeping in view of the demand for automobile engineers the department has a vision to enrich the knowledge of students and update the latest technology of automobile engineering. The department has a team of highly-qualified and well-experienced faculty and staff members of proven ability and administrative skills. They specialize in IC Engines, Alternative, Fuels, Automotive Technology, Automotive Design, Production, and Thermal & Electric Vehicles.

The Department of Automobile Engineering has got well equipped laboratories such as Engine Testing & Pollution Measurement Laboratory, Auto Scanning Laboratory, Automotive Components Laboratory, Fuels and Lubricants Laboratory In addition to this; basic laboratories such as Chassis Components, Engine Component and Vehicle Maintenance Laboratory are also there in the department. Other basic laboratories like – Strength of Materials, Fluid Mechanics and Machinery, Thermal Engineering and Metrology Lab have also been developed and is backed up by a modern workshop containing Carpentry, Smithy, Fitting, Welding, Machine Shop and Foundry Shop that cater to the needs of the students.

Through industry integrated workshops, seminars and conferences the students of automobile engineering are exposed to latest technology in designing the computer modeled and simulated components and development of new components/vehicles through relatively inexpensive process. They are encouraged to improve analytical and technical skills to gain employment in the areas such as Automotive control, Engine Design, FEA analysis, Chassis Design, CFD simulations and Vehicle Dynamics.

We have a separate Fabrication laboratory which is fully equipped with latest machines where our students used to fabricate their vehicles and participated in various events like dirt bike, GoKart and Supra.

The future automotive engineers are motivated to be in teams of SAE(Southern India Section) and Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers.
