Introduction

Automobile or Automotive Engineering has gained recognition and importance ever since motor vehicles capable for transporting passengers has been in vogue. Now due to the rapid growth of auto component manufacturers and automobile industries, there is a great demand for Automobile Engineers. Automobile Engineering alias Automotive Engineering or Vehicle Engineering is one of the most challenging careers in the field of engineering with a wide scope.

This branch deals with the designing, developing, manufacturing, testing and repairing and servicing automobiles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters etc & the related sub Engineering systems.

For the perfect blend of manufacturing and designing automobiles, Automobile Engineering uses the features of different elements of Engineering such as mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering. Automobile Engineering, also known as Automotive Engineering, is a field concerned with vehicle design, development, production, and safety testing. Automobile Engineers work closely with other engineers to improve automotive technical performance, vehicle aesthetics, and automotive software. 

To become a proficient automobile engineer, specialized training is essential and it is a profession, which requires a lot of hard work, dedication, determination and commitment. 

Automobile production requires a large team of professionals that specialise in specific aspects of Automobile Engineering. These specialisations include control systems, aerodynamics, fluid mechanics, and emission control.

To enter the field of Automobile Engineering, most employers expect you to have a degree in a related engineering field, although some large automotive companies offer apprenticeships.

Depending on the subject area you wish to specialise in, you may be required to get a postgraduate certification.

The position is ideal for employees with a strong work ethic that enjoys seeing how their work has paid off. Automobile Engineering has tangible results, meaning that engineers can see the success, or even failures, of their work
