Automobile Engineering

Overview

India is the world’s largest market for three wheelers and the second largest market for two wheelers and small cars (in terms of units). According to the Automotive mission Plan2026  (AMP) report,  Over the next decade, the Indian Automotive sector is likely to contribute in excess of 12% of the country’s GDP and comprise more than 40% of its manufacturing sector. Around 13% of the excise duty collection of the Government can be attributed to the Indian Automotive industry. The Automotive industry can be termed as the mother of the manufacturing sector in an economy, as its fortunes directly impact the fortunes of several related manufacturing industries (e.g. Iron & Steel, Aluminium, Lead, Rubber, Plastics, Glass, Machine tools, Moulds & dies, Chemicals, and Capital Goods) and several in the Services sector (e.g. Logistics, Banking, Insurance, Sales & distribution, Service & repair, and Fuels) India was the sixth largest producer of automobiles globally with an average annual production of about 29 million vehicles in 2017–2018, of which about 4 million were exported. India is a prime destination for many multinational automobile companies with aspirations of business expansion in Asia.

“By 2026, the Indian automotive industry will be among the top three of the world in engineering, manufacture and export of vehicles and auto components, and will encompass safe, efficient and environment friendly conditions for affordable mobility of people and transportation of goods in India comparable with global standards, growing in value to over 12% of India’s GDP and generating an additional 65 million jobs”.

The Department of Automobile Engineering in VEC  was established in the year 2012 with a clear vision of providing knowledge  in both theory and practical to prepare highly competent Automobile Engineers for global automotive Industries perspectives through innovative,  Industry oriented curriculum, Intensive Practical training and Industry exposure to the students in the trust areas like Automotive Design, Thermal studies on Batteries, Alternative Fuels and Energy systems and Modern Vehicle Technology etc., The Department has highly qualified and experienced faculty member and accredited by NBA.
