Our Graduates as Automotive Engineers work as part of a team responsible for vehicle design, development, manufacture and testing.  Generally, an Automotive engineer is involved in the design, manufacture, distribution, marketing, sales and after-sales care of cars, motorbikes and other commercial vehicles.   Roles of an Automotive Engineer The roles of an automotive engineer will depend on his/her area of work but could require the bachelor degree holder to:
  1. build prototypes of components and test their performance, weaknesses and safety
  2. decide on the most appropriate materials for component production
  3. inspect and test drive vehicles and check for faults.
  4. investigate mechanical failures or unexpected maintenance problems
  5. liaise with suppliers and handle supply chain management issues
  6. manage projects, including budgets, production schedules, resources, staff and supervise quality control
  7. prepare material, cost and timing estimates, reports and design specifications
  8. solve engineering problems using mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, thermodynamic or pneumatic principles
  9. supervise and inspect the installation and adjustment of mechanical systems in industrial plants
  10. take into consideration changing customer needs and government emissions regulations when developing new designs and manufacturing procedures
  11. use computer-aided design (CAD) packages to develop ideas and produce designs
