Brief Info

A Post-Graduate Program in Automobile Engineering i.e. M.Tech. (Automobile Engineering) was started in academic year 2010-11 with an intake capacity of 18. The Program became autonomous from the academic year 2011-12 and is affiliated to Shivaji University, Kolhapur. The strengths of the program are; industry oriented curriculum, highly qualified faculty, state of the art research and testing facilities and conducive teaching-learning environment. The specially devoted laboratories including Automotive Research Center and Post-Graduate Software Laboratory along with other laboratories shared by both UG and PG students such as Automotive Research and Diagnostic Center, Automotive Power Plant Laboratory, Automotive Emission Laboratory, Automotive Electrical and Electronics Laboratory etc. are rich enough to help the students in enjoying experiential learning in a true sense.

The students in the past have worked on industry sponsored projects in reputed organizations such as Tata Motors, Pune, Ghatage Patil Industries, Kolhapur, Cooper Corporation Satara, Tenneco India Pvt. Ltd., Pune, Piagio Motors Pvt. Ltd. Baramati etc. The students also have necessary support and system in place to carry out their dissertation work in the department laboratories, in the research areas including Automotive Noise and Vibration, Alternative Fuels, I.C. Engines, Automotive Brakes, Smart Materials, Automotive Suspension etc.

Many students have been absorbed in industries where they were working on sponsored projects, few others have got placed in other industries and few of them are shaping their career as Assistant Professors in Engineering Institutions. Few of the passed out students are also pursuing their doctoral research in reputed academic institutions such as S.V.N.I.T. Surat, V.J.T.I., Mumbai, V.I.T. Vellore.

In nutshell, the students have a golden opportunity to fulfill their dream of pursuing Post-Graduate studies in Automobile Engineering and become an intellectual professional to serve the industries and society.
