Automobile (AU) Department

The Automobile Engineering Department, headed by Dr. Mohammed Ali was started in 2011 and currently. This is the youngest department of the institute and one of the most energetic. All faculty members, striving hard continuously to improve the quality of education in engineering and technology. The department offers academic programmeB.E. in Automobile Engineering. The faculty members are grouped under 5 broad specialisation; Automobile, Design, Thermal, Industrial Engineering. and Material Science.

The academic activities are supported by five laboratories. Students are the active members of SAE-India in which they perform various activities like; EFFICYCLE, BAJA, SUPRA and GO-CART competitions, under the guidance of various faculty members. The team of faculties and students have performed 1stin M.P. and 18th all India ranking in EFFICYCLE competition in the year 2013-14. The department organizes various Industrial Visits time to time.

Automobile Engineers are the specialised technocrats, who have vast opportunities in the locomotion industries globally. The ever increasing demand of automobiles ensure a lucrative career in this branch and requires design, testing, manufacturing, performance enhancement, energy efficiency, inviting the engineers of this stream for securing posts in the industries of LMVs, SUVs, HMVs, Two-Wheelers, Cargo Vehicles, Railways and in Aviation.
