B.E. / B.TECH.  AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING: Introduction

It is a 4 years long Undergraduate Level Bachelor’s Degree program. The 4 years’ duration is divided into 8 semesters, with each semester lasting a period of 6 months. During each semester, students will have to face separate sets of theoretical subjects as well as practical lab and workshop sessions associated with those subjects.

 

Automobile Engineering focuses on topics such as design, manufacturing and working of vehicles such as cars, buses, motorcycles etc. The program focuses on tools, engines, machinery, electrical and electronics systems used in vehicles as well as in manufacturing them. Also, subjects like cost estimation, plant processes and management, CAD, safety aspects, research and development are also covered in the course.

 

Apart from subjects focusing on the topic of Automobiles and their parts, the course also contains lots of subjects and topics drawn from B.E./B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering program.

 

To get a better idea about the course structure and nature of the program, I’ve prepared a list of very important subjects present in B.E./B.Tech. Automobile Engineering program. Let us take a look at it-
