Department of Automobile Engineering

About the Department

The department was established with an undergraduate programme in Automobile engineering in 2009. The department is well equipped with laboratories like Fuels and Lubricants Lab, Automotive Electrical and Electronics Lab, Two and Three Wheeler Lab, Automotive chassis Lab, Engine Components Lab and Vehicle Maintenance Lab. The upgraded facilities in the department include Single cylinder four stroke engine with Eddy Current Dynamometer and Flue gas analyzer.

The department is actively functioning in SAE and associated activities. A team of students in the name of Griffin Riderz regularly participating in the SAE SUPRA formula race event conducted in various parts of the country with the self designed formula 1 race car constructed by the team members. Apart from this other SAE activities like guest lecture, aero modeling, best manager and industrial visits to core Automobile industries are also regularly conducted in the department. In addition to it , the department itself arranged many industrial visits to the students to get in touch with latest trends in the industry.

The clubs
  • KCE SAE Collegiate Club
  • Mini Bike & Go-Kart Club
  • Eco Care Clubare functioning under the department.

The department has a separate library with a collection of SAE magazines and books. An annual MINI CAR CONTEST organized by the department served as a great forum to exhibit the talents of the all Engineering students. The annual Mini Bike Design and Racing Contest RIDE would be serving the students to direct their attention in the right direction to manufacture their own mini bikes and race it in the event. The Automobile Engineering Association is actively conducting workshops on key automotive areas like automotive applications of MEMS, Electric and Hybrid Vehicle, Engine Management System, Spark Ignition Engine. The department maintains a close relationship with number of Automobile industries through research and consultancy projects.
