To be a Centre of Excellence in Education and Research in Automobile Engineering, to meet the ever-changing needs of the global automotive industry and the society.
To impart quality technical education and training to the students enabling them to excel in their professional career with a high degree of integrity and ethical standards’
Started in the year 2011, the department offers B.Tech programmes in Automobile engineering, M.Tech. programme in Automotive Systems Engineering and M.Tech programme in Manufacturing Engineering the department of automobile engineering closely working with the industry experts from the companies like Ford, Hyundai, BMW, Ashok Leyland ,TAFE etc to prepare the students industry ready . The department is known for its excellent corporate relations with industry giants like Ford Motors, Tractors and Farm Equipment (TAFE) and so on..The department always strives for excellence in advanced research and “Centre of Advanced Machining”, which is the research aspect of the department is sponsored by the Department of Atomic Energy – Board of Research in Nuclear Science (DAE-BRNS), Mumbai, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climatic Change (MOEFC) and UGC-DAE. The programme is accredited by ABET (USA), an international accreditation body for engineering and technical education. The Department of Automobile Engineering puts massive efforts to deliver uncomparable automobile engineering education using advanced teaching pedagogy and learning support for undergraduate students. The department provides state of the art research infrastructure for postgraduate candidates. The faculty of the B.Tech- Automobile Engineering motivates students to think out of the box as a practice which resulted in winning several awards in competitions.The B.Tech Automobile engineering programme is offered in collaboration with SIEMENS.
At Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education, we believe in the practical nature of the domain and focus on learning by doing it practically. The curriculum is reviewed and revised regularly keeping in mind the latest developments in the field to keep students updated with the global standards. The department also arranges for industrial visits in leading industries such as: Ashok Leyland, Kerala Automobiles, Ammarun Foundries Pvt. Ltd., TAFE Ltd. and encourages students to participate in co-curricular and extracurricular activities to ensure a holistic development. Kalasalingam University has collaborated with the companies such as: Ashok Leyland, UCAL Fuel Systems, Think and Learn, NCR Corporation to enable the opportunity of Internship to the students. The department frequently organizes conferences, seminars, guest lectures, workshops, symposiums and training programmes to maximise the impact of classroom education.
