Automobile Engineering

The meaning of an automobile is a four-wheeled vehicle, carries a small number of passengers, driven by an engine or motor and independent of rails or tracks. The subject of automobile engineering is the study of engineering aspects and technical details of cars. There are hundreds and thousands of different types of cars that are available today. During the past century, tremendous development in this field has taken place.

Apart from cars, vehicles for different usage have been developed. These range from commercial vehicles of different types of public utility transport systems such as buses and coaches to the carriers of different types of tractors and similar machines meant to be used for specific purposes which are propelled by an engine or motor that is part of these machines. Though this study is meant for automobiles only but in the present scenario it can not be strictly confined to cars, and therefore, wherever felt necessary and relevant the other forms of automobiles meant for allied purposes will also be included.
