About the Department
Automobile Engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with designing, manufacturing and operating automobiles like motorcycles, buses, trucks, etc., and its subsystems. Automobile Engineering incorporates mechanical, electrical, electronic, software & safety elements and this sector always need experts in vehicle designing, manufacturing and servicing.
Keep this in mind, SSMIET took a plunge into this challenging field of Automobile Engineering and established the Department of Automobile Engineering in 2011. It offers B.E., Automobile Engineering course under UG program with an annual intake of 60 students. The objective of Automobile Engineering program is to nurture the students with creativity, research orientation and finest qualities in order to excel in this domain. The academic activities are so planned in a way to accelerate the understanding of fundamental principles and provide a broad exposure in the design, development and testing of automobiles to the students. This program train the students well aware with latest technological developments, challenges and diverse needs of the various areas of automobile industry through good practical study, industrial exposure and industry based value added courses.
The department has well equipped class rooms and laboratories like Vehicle Maintenance and Repair lab, Automotive Components Lab, Two and Three Wheeler Lab, CAD & CAE Lab, Automotive Fuel and Lubricants Lab, Engine Performance and Emission Testing Lab, Automotive Electrical and Electronics Lab to cater the needs of the students. The department has the 11 faculty members qualified from renowned academic institutes and also from industries background.
Automobile Engineering students at SSMIET are exposed to work with the industries as an internship activity during the course and regular industrial visits to renowned industries like TAFE, TOYOTA, etc., is one of the key activities of this department. Apart from academic activity, the department frequently brings the industry and academic experts through SAE to deliver the special lectures on emerging trends, challenges and needs in automotive sectors to the students. The department always encourage and guide the students to participate in national level competitions organized by SAE, ISIE, ISNEE etc., The Automobile Engineering Association & SAE-SSMIET Club is consistently conducting various activities like Vehicle Safety Riding programme, Traffic Awareness programme, Vehicle Maintenance and Servicing programmes, Fuel Injector Pump Calibration Programme, Design and Fabrication of ATV, Go-Kart, Solar Bike vehicle Programme etc.
