B.Tech. - Automotive Design Engineering

DETAILS

B. Tech Automotive Design Engineering program at UPES has been offered since 2005 to cater to the demand of designers and engineers in the automotive sector. Automotive design is a distinctive field that encompasses engineering, creativity, business acumen, and safety. An automotive designer is not bounded by automobiles only, they can be a designer for any form of wheeled transportation. The electric vehicle technology course includes a wide assortment of topics on the related aspects of the transportation sector, energy, and environmental concerns, application of fossil and alternative fuels, and the development of vehicles of the future. Automotive design engineering is a combination of art and science; a strong aesthetic sense is needed, as well as a solid grounding in the engineering and materials involved in building cars and their component parts. Our alumni from this program have been at the forefront of reputed organisations such as Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., Ashok Leyland, etc. 

 

B.Tech Automotive Design Engineering

Electric vehicles could help diversify the energy needed to move people and goods thanks to their reliance on the wide mix of primary energy sources used in power generation, greatly improving energy security. Electric vehicles include a very wide variety of vehicles ranging from two-wheelers, three-wheelers, cars, buses and trucks. The government of India is emphasizing electric vehicles through various programs like FAME- Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
