Academics

Automobile engineers have quite a good demand in India because of the fast growth rate of the automobile sector. India is ranked as one of the largest producers in the world with an average annual production of more than seventeen million vehicles.  Automotive industry contributes to the 7% of GDP as per the data. According to a report released recently by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, our country is also one of the largest automotive markets. Automobile exports are growing annually with the support of the policies taken by the government to attract multinational companies to invest in India. 

All these set a potential platform for automobile engineering market and jobs in this sector. With the government’s ‘The Automotive Mission Plan’ (AMP) II 2016-26, a plethora of job opportunities in this industry is expected. The sector currently needs educated professionals with innovative ideasin design and manufacturing of such advanced automobiles and machines. 

Automobile Engineers are in demand not only in India, but also in foreign countries. Automobile Engineering has opened up great employment opportunities in private and multinational automobile companies, service stations, defence services as well as in entrepreneurship.  

Job Roles 

The industry offers many challenging and interesting roles to skilled professionals. Some of the common job roles include: 

  • Designing, development and manufacturing of vehicles 
  • Creating blueprint of vehicles and its components 
  • Maintenance and Servicing in automobile workshops, aircraft industries, aviation, marine vessels, and diesel power stations 

Amrita has an array of opportunities waiting for the potential students.
