About the Department of Automobile Engineering

Modern automotive industries need experts in vehicle design and manufacture. With this in mind, the Department of Automobile Engineering was established in 2013 to train the students in the area of automobile engineering.

The department is well equipped with laboratories like Vehicle Design Lab, Engine Testing and Diagnosis center, Vehicle Servicing Laboratory, Automotive Sensors and Controls Laboratory, Automotive Electrical and Electronic Laboratory, Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, CAD/CAM center, Design center, Heat Power Engineering Laboratory, Energy Engineering Laboratory and Heat Transfer Laboratory. The software packages available in the department include Pro-E, CATIA, Unigraphics, ANSYS, ADAMS, LSDYNA for the faculty and aspiring students to pursue their research and project work. The upgraded facilities in the department include sensors tutor, MPFI Engine with Eddy Current Dynamometer, CVT, Automatic Transmission, etc.

Among the various activities of the department, the SAE stands out with its many guest lectures by eminent personalities from academic and industries. In addition, frequent industrial visits to renowned industries are one of the key activities of SAE. The SAE also plays a very important role in mobilizing student participation by conducting various quiz competitions and seminars. The department has a separate library with a collection of various journals, SAE magazines and books. An annual AUTO EXPLODE exhibition organized by the department exhibits most of the Modern Cars, Race Cars and also Students Innovations. The highlights of the exhibits are Intelligent Traffic System, Active Suspension System and Composite Leaf Springs, etc. The Automobile Engineering Association (AEA) is actively conducting various Traffic Awareness programmes, Vehicle Maintenance, and Servicing programmes, Automobile Pollution Check Up Camps,etc.

The department maintains a close liaison with a number of Universities and Industries in and out of the country through faculty research and collaborative projects.
The department offers consultancy services in Chassis Design, Engine Design, FEA analysis, and CFD simulations. In the near future, the department aims to start Fuel Testing Laboratory, Advanced Automotive Electronics Laboratory, and a Research center for Alternate Fuels.
