Automobile Engineering

VROOMIX 2K19 is 2ndNational Level Technical Symposium conducted by Department of Automobile Engineering in SSM Institute of Engineering and Technology, Dindigul on 6th March 2019.

We intend to bring out the scintillating skills of the budding engineers in terms of spirit and competent. A Symposium is an Independent thing where everyone is passionate, when passion becomes need it brings out perfection. And we need the passion of young India to be brought out. Technical events like Auto quiz, Paper presentation, CNC simulation, CAD-er., Mr. Mechanic, Mr. Advertiser &Non-Technical events like Short Film, PUBG Mobile, Mr.Sketcher, Treasure Hunt and Motography to stimulate students creativity, gain knowledge and improve them as a Team member.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

 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 9 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.

Focused On:

All efforts are on now with a single minded purpose to propel the automotive engineering profession by focusing on three trends occurring in the automotive industry today that affect all automotive engineers and engineering societies.

  • The first of these trends is simultaneous engineering the integration of the roles of design engineer, manufacturing engineer, supplier, marketer, and planner.
  • The second trend is the increased reliance of auto manufacturers on suppliers and design houses to support the design and manufacturing functions.
  • The third factor crucial to an internationalized auto industry is standards as communication, as a basis for regulation, and as an aid to interchangeability.


Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers (ISIE)


They give platform to new start-ups, Innovative ideas and to passionate people, who really want to contribute to society. We set out with an obsession for concept development, one that was unheard in the corridors of green energy development. It was about a commitment to create value through innovation, quality, creativity, partnerships, openness and learning. It has created a road which is leading the world to a new direction laid out by ISIE. We are building our story with a belief in small hybrid and solar for a big future. Our story encourage millions of Indian youths to make drive their dreams. A comradeship had begun. Something incredible had begun.
