About  Programme

 Automobile Engineering

The department was established with an undergraduate program in automobile engineering in 2006.

The study of automobile engineering is mainly related to design, development, fabrication, testing and components of the vehicles from their conceptual to realization stage. It also focuses on integration of basic and fundamental concepts of mechanical, electrical, electronics, computer and safety engineering aspects to realize a vehicle satisfying the critical, complex and diverse levels of satisfaction of its users.

Specifically automobile engineering is related to topics of production & design focusing on testing, coordination and system analysis of the vehicle development associated with performance, durability, operation of the vehicle; manufacturing dealing with fabrication and assembly of the diverse components of automobile.

The discipline is wide open for critical research activities involving direct applications of advanced mathematics.

The department is well equipped with laboratories like Automobile Engines Laboratory, Automobile Systems Laboratory, Vehicle Maintenance & Garage Practice Laboratory Automobile Component Laboratory, Two Wheeler & Three Wheelers Laboratory, Automobile Electrical & Electronics Laboratory, Automobile Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Laboratory, Computer Aided Manufacturing Laboratory, Processes I &II Laboratory.

Mission

To inculcate skills in design, production, operation, maintenance of components of automobiles and to develop human resources with hands-on skill and knowledge so as to enable them to become automobile professionals.

EMPLOYEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

With a bachelors’ degree in automobile engineering, our students stand great chance in getting employed by leading automobiles manufacturers.

Also, the way automobiles industries are growing in Gujarat especially Ahmedabad; it will only provide adequate opportunities to the students in near future as Indus is one of the fewest colleges to offer Automobile Engineering degree.
