B Tech in Automobile Engineering

The Department of Automobile Engineering was established in the year 2009 at the very inception of Dr. Sudhir Chandra Sur Degree Engineering College. The department started with a 4 years B. Tech course (capacity of 60 students) and later on, Diploma in Automobile Engineering (capacity of 60 students) started in 2014. The department offers courses to ensure a regular supply of top notch Automobile Engineers who have hands on experience and are well versed with latest Automobile Technology to fill up the demand gap between industry and academia. The department has state of the art laboratory facilities to provide hands on training to the students in the emerging field of specialization. Automobile engineering students get exposure to practically all fields of engineering. Automobile is a branch where all sorts of engineering and technologies are involves e.g. Automobile, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Industrial design. The department has their student chapter under SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers).
