About the department

The Department of Automobile Engineering is started in the academic year 2016-17, with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The department follows the syllabus of the Anna University and to supplement the syllabus, guest lectures and industrial visit are organized. The SAE Collegiate club SIET is functioning actively.

AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING – GROWTH & SCOPE

One of the fastest growing industries, India is the 7th largest producer in the world with an average annual production of 17.5 million vehicles. This sector contributes 7% of the country’s GDP by volume. According to a report of Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturer (SIAM) 2015, our country is also the 4th largest automotive market by mass. According to industry estimates; automobile sector is expected to sell more than 6 million vehicles by 2020. The latest report by SIAM also says that in April-March 2015, overall automobile exports grew by 14.89% over the same period last year. Looking at this data, it is clear that India is a potential engineering automobile market and jobs in this sector is expected to grow significantly. With Modi government’s ‘The Automotive Mission Plan’ (AMP) II 2016-26, one can expect plethora of job opportunities in this industry. The sector needs professionals with path-breaking ideas for the production of more such advanced machines.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Automobile Engineers are demanded in both India and abroad. As it’s a huge industry, there are great employment opportunities in Private National and Multinational Automobile companies, Service Stations, Private Transport companies, Defense Services and Self Employment by setting up Automobile Garage or Maintenance Workshop.
