The Department of Automobile Engineering at SRMIST was established in 2004 with a vision of being recognized as a department of international repute. As a team, we aim to offer knowledge to the students on the elements of mechanical, electrical, electronics, software and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, buses, trucks and electric & hybrid vehicles and their respective engineering subsystems. Further, to lineup with the global challenges in e-mobility, we work hand-in-hand with the industry and government bodies. The department has 25 faculty members and one adjunct faculty member, all with a broad area of expertise and interests. With over 500 graduate students, post graduates and research scholars, the department’s strength is further reinforced with dedicated technicians and support staff.
By collaborating with over 10 companies, governmental agencies and institutions, such ARAI, ASDC, Apollo tyres, Valeo India Pvt. Ltd, Atalon, NFTDC etc., the department efficiently introduces and promulgates joint research activities, B.Tech. and M.Tech. programmes, skill-oriented training, industry supported labs, student exchange programmes etc. This provides students diverse opportunities to work upon and relate, thereby bridging the gap between the Universities and the Industry.
