PSG College of Technology, an ISO 9001:2000 certified institution is one of the foremost institutions founded by the PSG & Sons’ charities trust (1926). The college was established in the year 1951 and the founders decided to locate it in the same campus as the PSG Industrial institute for effective industry-institute interaction. The college today has strength of about 8500+ with engineering and technology departments besides the computer applications, management sciences, basic sciences and humanities departments.
The institute offers three 5-year integrated sandwich engineering courses which combines class room coaching with industrial training, one of the few in the country to offer such a course. Among the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offered by the college, many are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE). Being autonomous, the college frames its own curricula, updates syllabus, introduces new courses and is empowered to administer its own evaluation system. Since 1960, PSG College of Technology has been publishing the “PSG Design Data Book”, the engineering Data hand book, used throughout the country by engineers and students.
B.E. Automobile Engineering is a 4 years’ graduate degree program, the minimum eligibility is 10+2 class with Physics, Chemist, y and Math from a recognized school board or its equivalent exam.Automotive engineering, along with aerospace engineering and naval architecture, is a branch of vehicle engineering, incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software, and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems. It also includes modification of vehicles. Manufacturing domain deals with the creation and assembling the whole parts of automobiles is also included in it. The automotive engineering field is research -intensive and involves direct application of mathematical models and formulas. The study of automotive engineering is to design, develop, fabricate, and test vehicles or vehicle components from the concept stage to production stage. Production, development, and manufacturing are the three major functions in this field.
