Automobile engineering is a sub branch of mechanical engineering. Automobile engineering includes elements of Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, Electronics Engineering, Software Engineering and Safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of automobiles, buses and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.



  • Designing and developing vehicles using knowledge of mechanical engineering, combustion, vehicle structures.
  • Using the knowledge of computers and electronic and electrical systems, which are all becoming increasingly sophisticated in modern vehicles. For example, some cars now have computer controlled engine systems and digital display dashboards.
  • To specialise in design by using the computer-aided design (CAD) technology, allowing them to create and change designs much more quickly than drawing boards.
  • To specialise in research and development by taking into account factors such as cost, safety and comfort of driver including crash and safety testing, fuel efficiency and environmental issues.
