About Course

Energy and environment deal with different source, forms of energy acquisition, transport, production and use with their direct and indirect impact on environmental.


Automotive Engineering is a field concerned with vehicle design, development, production, and safety testingor off-road vehicles. Automotive Engineers work closely with other engineers to improve automotive technical performance, vehicle aesthetics, and automotive software to design new products or modify existing ones. Automotive Engineering courses combine tools and methods used in Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, Safety and Software Engineering. These instruments allow engineers to integrate functionality, safety, and aesthetic in order to create perfect driving machines.Automotive engineers do one or more of the following, designing new cars for development, conducting laboratory testing for performance safety, and troubleshooting design or manufacturing issues with recalled vehicles and solve engineering problems.Today, an automobile engineer has to design new vehicles and work on improving existing ones, become part of research and development in order to determine solutions to various engineering challenges and even engage in production which also means designing and planning the latest production processes.

What Will I Learn?

  • Identify the different parts of an automobile and it’s working principles.
  • Decide the applications of various types of fuels and injection systems.
  • Analyse the cause of automobile emissions, its effects on environment and methods to reduce the emissions.
