About the Department

With Tesla creating futuristic cars and autonomous vehicles becoming a near reality, it is undeniable that the automobile industry is growing in leaps and bounds. The increasing concern for pollution-free and fuel-efficient vehicles is driving the need for well qualified engineers in the Automobile Industry to spearhead innovative solutions. KCG college is “Best Automobile engineering college in Chennai”

The Department of Automobile Engineering at KCG College was started in the year 2018 with a sanctioned intake of 60 students. The department is equipped with highly qualified faculty of proven ability and state-of-the-art laboratories that cater to the needs of the industry. The department further encourages professional activity of the staff and students through SAE INDIA and also provides value added trainings, workshops and seminars to all the students to gain practical exposure in their area of interest.

Students are continuously encouraged to pursue individual projects which would enable them to enrich their technical skills and knowledge. We also ensure that each of our students go for an in-plant training during their summer and winter vacations. The college owns an Inferno racing team which is being governed by expert staff members and industrial representatives from around the world. These forums provide the platform for students to enrich their knowledge in the automotive field and also to have an exposure to the recent trends in the automobile industry.

The department owns off road bikes and cars which will provide a keen interest for students in the learning of design technology. We also have a bonded relationship with major OEM’s (BMW, Ford and Hyundai) and they have sponsored fully loaded vehicles and engines for the study purpose of our students.
