The Department of Automobile Engineering was started in 1983 with an intake of 60. It is one of the oldest departments in Maharashtra offering specialized UG program in Automobile Engineering. Department has started the PG program in Automobile Engineering in 2010-11. Our department is providing the latest technology-based facilities for conducting experiments and carrying out research. Highly qualified and experienced faculty, through the use of active learning techniques, are trying to strengthen the teaching-learning process with outcomes-based education. Students are being trained to become industry ready through various tracks like a capstone project, industry-internship & project, undergraduate research experience, and entrepreneurship development.
Government regulations on emissions, safety, etc. have pushed OEMs to make greener and safer vehicles. The first step towards this has been the notification from the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways enforcing BS-VI emission regime from April 2020. This is in continuation to the nationwide implementation of BS-IV emission standards in 2017. In-line with this changing scenario, the curriculum of both UG and PG has been revised regularly. Another much talked about the trend is the shift towards electrification of drivetrains. Govt. of India with their National Electricity Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) and Faster Adoption of Manufacturing of Electric vehicle (FAME) are encouraging the OEMs to shift from conventional to electric driven mobility for the cause of saving earth from environmental degradation.
With effect from the academic year 2019-20, the UG and PG degrees offered by the department have been changed to B. Tech. Mechanical Engineering (Automobile) and M. Tech. Mechanical Engineering (Automobile). All automobile and mechanical engineering companies are demanding the graduates who are well conversant with the automobile as well as mechanical engineering background. Automobile Engineering graduates are supposed to handle mechanical systems also, apart from their specialization in the automotive field. Present industry scenario demands the knowledge of the interdisciplinary field, e.g. knowledge of electronics, electrical engineering, etc. Industry Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0) demands the engineering graduates should know the applications of IoT, mechatronics, automation, etc. In the revised curriculum, appropriate courses have been incorporated.
The department is working on preparing an engineering graduate which will serve the industry and society in general. The Automobile Engineering Department invites the deserving, dedicated & enthusiastic students to join us and cultivate their bright future to enjoy the fruits later. I wish success in your endeavor to join us on the journey of quality education & to have a great learning experience with my excellent, loving & caring team.
