SCOPE OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING
A large number of foreign companies such as Hyundai, Maruti Suzuki, Nissan, Chevrolet, BMW have set up their manufacturing units in India and are competing with each other. This has proved to be a boon for the automotive engineers. With the thrust being laid on ‘Make in India’-the manufacturing sector is treading on the path of growth. Since, India is the second most populous country in the world, the demand for the automobile is increasing the length and breadth of the country, thereby resulting in the increase in the demand of automotive engineer. According to a report by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturer (SIAM) 2015, India is the fourth largest automotive market. Estimates in the report reveal that the automobile sector is likely to sell more than 6 million vehicles by 2020. In the report, SIAM mentions that during April-March 2015, overall automobile exports rose by 14.89 percent over the same period in 2014. This data is a clear indication that the job market for automotive engineers is expected to grow. Meanwhile, Indian government’s The Automotive Mission Plan’ (AMP) II 2016-26 will also prove to be a boon for the automobile sector and one can expect the creation of a lot of job opportunities. With increasing competition, the sector is looking at professionals who could come up with path-breaking ideas for the production of more technologically advanced machines.
