HOD Automobile


Automobile engineering is a branch of automotive engineering, incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.

It also includes modification of vehicles. Manufacturing domain deals with the creation and assembling the whole parts of automobiles is also included in it. The automotive engineering field is research -intensive and involves direct application of mathematical models and formulas. The study of automotive engineering is to design, develop, fabricate, and testing vehicles or vehicle components from the concept stage to production stage.

Automotive engineering is one of the most exciting professions you can choose. From the global concerns of sustainable mobility, and teaching cars to drive themselves, to working out how we’ll get around on the surface of Mars, automotive engineering is all about the future.

The challenges facing personal mobility are endless. Automotive engineers work in every area of the industry, from the look and feel of current cars, to the safety and security of new forms of transport. Attempting to make cars as fast as possible whilst keeping them fuel efficient may seem like an impossible task, but this is the kind of problem automotive engineer deal with every day. The work of an automotive engineer breaks down into three categories:

Designing new products and improving existing ones.
Research and Development
Finding solutions to engineering problems
Planning and designing new production processes

One of the first steps in becoming an automotive engineer is going to university. Most automotive engineers start out by studying Mechanical Engineering, but increasingly more specific Automotive Engineering degrees are becoming available. A Diploma in Automobile Engineering is a great place to start and could lead you onto a Bachelor, a Masters or even a PhD.

So, just look to apply Diploma in Automobile in KOREA NEPAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (KNIT).
