About the department

The Department of Automobile Engineering was established in the year 2006. 

Automobile Industry has garnered immense appreciation since the realization of vehicle’s capacity to ease routine migration. Excessive demand of reliable, modern yet high on comfort vehicles has made automobile engineering the most sought-after field in today’s times, worldwide. 

At Indus this department endeavours to teach the design, development, fabrication, and testing of components/systems of vehicles from their conceptual to realization stage. During the programme one learns about integration of basic and fundamental concepts of mechanical, electrical, electronics, computer and safety engineering aspects. It allows students to have deep study of various subjects within four years of graduation. The discipline prepares students to build new ideas & possibilities in the field of research & development of technologies and explore future sustainability of automobile industry. 

There are many automobile engineering colleges in Ahmedabad, but Indus University is counted as one of the Top Automobile Engineering Colleges in Ahmedabad. 

The department has well-maintained high-quality laboratories like:

  • Automobile Engines Laboratory
  • Automobile Systems Laboratory
  • Vehicle Maintenance & Garage Practice Workshop
  • Automobile Component Design Laboratory 
  • Two-Wheeler & Three Wheelers Laboratory
  • Automobile Electrical & Electronics Laboratory
  • Automobile Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Laboratory and more.

To sum up, automobile engineering department endlessly works towards transforming their promising students into proficient engineers.


Bachelor of Technology in Automobile Engineering is a four-year programme, designed to impart diverse skills sets to students. The skills are divided into four types: In the first year focus is to refine soft, cognitive and aptitude skills, in the second year fundamentals of engineering are touched upon, third and fourth years contains technical skills, in total, entire curriculum grooms students into an accomplished engineer. Also, workshops are conducted at intervals to give hands-on-experience to students, combining theory with practical learning.
