Automobile Engineering has come of age in India. Automobile hubs and clusters are spread across the length and breadth of India. With the boom in the Industrial sector, the education sector has witnessed the mushrooming of engineering colleges in the last two decades.
The profession of Automobiles, in addition to the Skills, also requires the knowledge of Research and Development, Artistic creativity in Design coupled with Leadership and Business acumen. It also requires a broad understanding of scientific principles, knowledge of materials and fuels. An Automobile Engineer is a connoisseur who practices art, science and technology. However, the colleges offering the Automobile programmes are very less in comparison with the other disciplines. The Professional Institutions to impart education are again too less in number to feed the growing hunger of Automotive Engineers who compete at the International Arena. To fill up this void and to safeguard the interests of the Automotive engineers, the Institution of Automobile Engineers India, promoted by the Automobile Society India has come to exist.
