PostSubject: About automotive engineering schools   Sun May 15, 2011 3:18 pm

Education helps a person improve their standard of living by not only providing a means of income but also by imparting knowledge to a person. There are many fields in which a person can choose to make a career. Automotive engineering is one of them.

Automotive engineering is one of the best degrees options a person can pursue now-a-days. As the automotive industry grows there are many people that are looking to take up this line of work. There are many fields within this industry that one can take up. For example, proficiency management, hydraulics, electrical systems and mechanical systems are just a few of the areas that one can specialize in. working in this field requires that you should have good hand to eye co-ordination as well as a mechanical aptitude. You should get along well with people and be able to work without supervision when asked to.

This field is vast and there are many areas one can specialize in if looking for a career in the automobile industry. A few of these fields are designing, testing, manufacturing, etc. There are two paths that you can take in order to work in the automotive industry. One path is mechanical engineering and the other is automotive design engineering. Both fields require a background in physics, chemistry and mathematics. If you are planning on pursuing an automotive design course then you need to be proficient with computers. This is because of the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. This software is coming into use more and more and knowledge of this software is required. This software can be downloaded and tutorials for it can be downloaded from the internet if you cannot find a course that teaches it.

You can also do a production engineering degree if you are looking to get into the production side of things. Production engineering deals with the designing, manufacture and usage of production equipment. If you are thinking that this is not related to the automobile field then think again. These technologies are extensively used in automobile production plants.

Engineering apprenticeships will enable you to work in the design and production of automobiles and is the safest bet. The basics of physics, chemistry and mathematics in relation to engineering are covered in the mechanical engineering undergraduate degree. You may feel that none of the syllabus taught is relevant to your ultimate goal (the automobile industry), but such is not the case. You will be taught the basics that you will need for your future career. Once you have completed your graduate degree you will need to spealize either in the mechanical or electrical field. Here you will learn how to apply all that you have learnt in your degree and this is the knowledge you will be utilizing when you go to work.

There are a lot of universities that offer mechanical Engineering courses and you need to do your research before you decide on which college you would like to go to.
