2. Automotive Design

Overview: Automobile industries always look for those who possess in-depth multi-disciplinary knowledge and are creative enough to apply it optimistically. In the present scenario, electrical and hybrid vehicles are the future of automotive vehicles. Additionally, predictive vehicle technology, fuel efficient rides, and self-driving technology are sectors in which dominance of emerging technologies opens ample opportunities. To learn the automobile world needs a specialization in Automotive Design.

Career Prospects: Students with Automotive Design as a Specialization/Minor will have career prospects in Core sectors like Automobile Industries – Like TATA, Hero, TVS, Hyundai, Volvo etc. Interested candidates can also have career as an Automotive design engineer. With the boom shifting to Electric vehicles – gaints like Ola, Tesla, Kia setting up manufacturing plants in India would open umpteen opportunities. Apart from these, the interested students may also seek career opportunities as a software professional.

 

3. Robotics

Overview: From the Chandrayaan I project for sending robots to the moon, to biomedical engineering and the auto industry, robots are being used on a wide scale. In an increasingly technology-driven country, robotics has fast assumed significance not only for industrial applications, but also in various day-to-day human activities. Robots will be the next World-changing technology. Get ready to build your Robot Slave –Choose Robotics Specialization

Career Prospects: Students with robotics as a Specialization/Minor will have career prospects in all upfront manufacturing units with Industry 4.0 standards as a Robot programmer, Robotics system Engineer, Robot Design Engineer, Robotics test Engineer and Automation product Design Engineer. Robotics being multidisciplinary in nature would also open avenues in the area of Artificial intelligence and Electronics. Apart from these, the interested students may also seek career opportunities as a software professional.

 

Capstone Projects @ SMEC

Capstone Projects are hands-on projects that provides an opportunity to the students to apply their concepts, knowledge and ideas in a Specialization to realistic practical problems. The outcomes of capstone project in the process of creating an engineering system or product from inception to implementation and testing. Further the project can be transformed into publications in the form of patents or research papers in reputed journals.
