What is automotive engineering

What is Automotive Engineering?

  • Automotive Engineering is a study of the interaction of science and technology as they apply to the automotive.

  • Engineered sub-systems that are responsible for the functioning of the automobile


Why automotive engineering

Why automotive Engineering?

  • Today’s new vehicles are complicated and sophisticated pieces of machinery.

  • Electronics control combustion and emissions in the modern engine

  • Introduction to modern methods of maintaining and repair of cars is important for college prep students deciding on career pathways

  • Most students will someday own their own vehicle and this course will better prepare them for ownership

  • Interested students may use this course as a precursor in studying mechanical, electrical and environmental engineering


Current high school automotive engineering

Major course outcomes

Major Course Outcomes

Students will:

  • Develop an understanding of the relationship that exists between science and its application in the engineering and design of the automobile

  • Utilize project-based learning strategies to develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Understand key elements of how concepts underlying a problem can lead to design and production of a viable solution

  • Conduct research and apply tools and technologies employed by engineers in the solution of problems

  • Gain an understanding of the various fields of engineering and how the design process may be applied to create new processes, products or systems that are environmentally friendly

  • Develop an awareness and understanding how the automobile’s history puts it in such prominence in our culture and how that may change with the advent of alternative forms of power applications


Engineering fundamentals

Engineering Fundamentals

  • Engineering fundamentals

  • Engineering parameters

  • Energy and power

  • Electronics theory

  • Engineering design

  • The design process

  • Laboratory applications and problem solving

  • Computer and Embedded Systems Operations

  • Design considerations


Class assignment

Class Assignment

Student teams pick one of the six simple machines and demonstrate a physical exhibition with the mathematical calculations and computations (the mechanical advantage) to show its effectiveness while taking friction, load, force, surface area and distance into consideration.

The assignment assisted students to develop an understanding of the relationship that exists between science and its application. They alsogained understanding of key elements of how concepts underlying a problem

can lead to effective design.

Viable solutions were found using of tools employed in the solution of theproblems presented and a written summary was required.


Conclusion

Conclusion

The automobile was a significant influence in world history in the first half of the 20th century, followed by the computer in the second half. The two have combined and are now the controlling forces in the modern automobile. Today’s automobile has numerous computers that control the majority of its moving parts. With the addition of Hybrids, the bar is raised again. The modern automobile is a phenomenon of technical engineering practices. Today’s engineering students must posess an overall view of such complicated vehicles to better focus on their chosen pathway required at the post-secondary level of education.

The goal of an Automotive engineering course is to provide students with a theoretical and hands-on, project oriented technology education program. The use of relevant mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering based application enhances these academic core competencies.
