Automotive Technology

Our Educational Goal:

is to applying a three pronged approach integrating Research, Education & Outreach in collaboration with global Automotive Industry & Academia to produce high quality Automotive Engineers. It is a two-year program, where in first year students study at COEP and ARAI Academy. In the second year, based on TOEFL & GRE Scores, some of the students have a chance to go to The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), USA for completing M.S. in Mechanical Engineering with Automotive Engineering emphasis.
