About the Department:

          Automobile Engineering or Automotive Engineering is the branch of engineering which deals with the study as how to design, manufacture and operate automobiles like buses, trucks, cars etc. and also their respective engineering subsystems. This can also be grouped under vehicle engineering. Automobile engineer’s main duty is to design, test and develop vehicles and / or components from concept stage through to production stage. The vehicle after being launched in the market also needs improvement. Then it comes to the duty of the automobile engineer to improve the vehicle in response to customer’s feedback.

Automobile engineers further can specialize in the areas such as aerodynamics, alternative fuels, chassis, electronics, emissions, ergonomics, manufacturing, materials, motorsport, power train, rapid prototyping, vehicle and pedestrian safety or supply chain management. The responsibility of automobile engineer is always in maintaining the high standard of vehicle by the use of traditional methods and state-of-the-art technology.

The Department of Automobile Engineering was established in the academic year 2011 with a sanctioned intake of 60. The department follows the syllabus as prescribed by the affiliating Anna University. At present, the department has well qualified faculty members and to supplement the syllabus, guest lectures and industrial visits are organized by the department. It has well equipped class rooms and laboratories that cater to the needs of the students. 


“To enrich the knowledge base of students in automobile domain and create professionals who contribute significantly to the design, redesign, research and development in the automotive industry both national and global areas”


“To constantly enhance knowledge base of students in mobility industry and interact with industry for conceptual application”.


RENNEN 2K18 RENNEN 2K18 is a National level Mini bike Design, Fabrication and Racing contest conducted SSM Institute of Engineering and Technology, Dindigul. RENNEN 2K18 is the first event in Dindigul to be conducted exclusively for mini bikes. By the RENNEN 2K18 we intend to bring out the scintillating skills of the budding engineers in terms of motor spirit. A Motorcycle 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. Who knows probably the work of designing by the competitors could bring out a new model; satisfying Make in India. 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.
