The Department of Automobile Engineering was established in the year 2004-05 with an annual intake of 30 students. Later in 2005 the intake was increased to 60, and 120 in the academic year 2013-2014. The objective of this undergraduate program is to prepare technically competent world class Automobile Engineers for the industry and academia.
Automobile is a fast moving sector requiring engineers who are conversant with the concept of Product Design, Functional Utility and Integrated Technology used in the manufacture of an Automobile. The department is being run by well qualified and experienced faculty members with several years of experience in Automobile Engineering. The department acquires sophisticated Automobile Engineering Laboratories such as Automotive Components Laboratory, Engine Performance & Emission Testing Laboratory, Auto Scanning Lab (including various set-ups as Wheel balancing, Wheel Alignment, Headlight focusing etc). In addition to this, basic laboratories such as Chassis Components, Engine Component and Vehicle Maintenance Labs etc. are also there in the department.
