The growth of the Automotive sector has been phenomenal in the past decade, and quite understandably the requirement for all its services have escalated to mind boggling levels. Automobile or Automotive Engineering has gained notable recognition and importance ever since. Currently, Automobile engineering now is one of the most challenging careers in the field of engineering with a huge demand. This branch deals with the Planning, Creating, Manufacturing, Testing and Servicing of all types of Automobiles right from the commencement stage to the production stage. This area of Engineering provides many sub sections and areas of specializations which include engine systems, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, supply chain management etc

Career Opportunities

A career as an automobile engineer is for people who are driven and passionate about cars. They must have considerable understanding and interest in mechanics, electronics, and mathematics as these are vital skills required for this career path. Automobile engineers must be organized individuals who are able to work in a methodical manner.


A graduate engineer at a major OEM (original equipment manufacturer, ie carmaker) gets a stipend of Rs. 28,000 to Rs. 30,000 a month during training. This can go up to Rs. 40,000 till s/he is confirmed. A line leader/assistant manager can earn anything from Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 80,000 a month, depending on their experience in the industry.

According to PayScale India, an automobile engineer can earn anywhere between Rs. 250,000 and Rs. 600,000 per annum including average bonuses and commissions received on the job. The highest salaries were paid by vehicle manufacturers whereas product development engineering firms paid a lot less to automobile engineers they hired. A division head with 18 years’ experience can make anything from Rs. 25 lakh to Rs. 30 lakh per annum.

Automobile engineers earn a considerable salary, more so than many other types of engineers. They have a fair amount of job security as they begin gaining experience. People in the field are generally passionate about automobiles, and so have the added advantage of working with something they truly appreciate.
