The Department is responsible for teaching and undertaking research in the areas of Chassis Design, Electric & Hybrid Vehicles, Engine Design, FEA analysis, and CFD simulations. In the near future, the department aims to start Fuel Testing Laboratory, Advanced Automotive Electronics Laboratory, and a Research centre for Alternate Fuels. The Department boasts of enthusiastic Faculty and talented staff members who are experts in their areas of interest.


Dr.Neelakrishnan S. , Professor & Head

The department was established with an undergraduate programme in Automobile engineering in 1999. The faculty of the department has published 200+ technical papers in various National and International conferences and journals from 1999.

The department is well equipped with laboratories like PACE Llab, Vehicle Servicing Lab, PSG Motorsports Lab, Electric Hybrid Vehicle Lab, Engine Trouble Shooting Lab, Vehicle Performance and Characteristic Lab, Two & Three Wheeler Lab, Automotive Steering System Lab, Automotive Simulation Lab, Automotive Electronics Lab, CAD & CAE Lab, Fuel Cell Lab, Centre for Automotive Research and Testing Lab & Centre of Excellence - Industrial & Home Textiles lab . The software packages available in the department include Pro-E, Solidworks, Solid edge, NX, Siemens, CATIA, Unigraphics, ANSYS, ADAMS, LSDYNA for the faculty and aspiring students to pursue their research and project work. The upgraded facilities in the department include sensors, CVT, Automatic Transmission, etc..

Among the various activities of the department, the SAE stands out with its many guest lectures by eminent personalities from academic and industries. In addition, frequent industrial visits to renowned industries is one of the key activities of SAE. The SAE also plays a very important role in mobilizing student participation by conducting various quiz competitions and seminars. The department has a separate library with a collection of various journals, SAE magazines and books. An annual AUTO EXPLODE exhibition organized by the department exhibits most of the Modern Cars, Race Cars and also Students Innovations. The highlights of the exhibits are Intelligent Traffic System, Active Suspension System and Composite Leaf Springs, etc. The Automobile Engineering Association (AEA) is actively conducting various Traffic Awareness programmes, Vehicle Maintenance, and Servicing programmes, Automobile Pollution Check Up Camps, etc.

The department maintains a close liaison with a number of Universities and Industries in and out of the country through faculty research and collaborative projects.

The department offers consultancy services in Chassis Design, Engine Design, FEA analysis, and CFD simulations. In the near future, the department aims to start Fuel Testing Laboratory, Advanced Automotive Electronics Laboratory, and a Research center for Alternate Fuels.

Vision

To be among the top ten leaders in the field of Automotive Engineering globally.
