Automotive Engineering | Careers and Where to Begin

1165 ratings | 68081 views
Automotive engineering is about the design, manufacturing, and operation of cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other automobiles. Within automotive engineering there are a variety of sub disciplines including safety, performance, vehicle dynamics, fuel economy, cost, manufacturing, and more. For those who want to go into automotive engineering, note that most colleges don't offer it as a major in terms of undergrad. The most common major for people to begin with is actually mechanical engineering. Then after you get your bachelor's you either go into the workforce in the automotive industry, or pursue further education specifically in automotive engineering. While in school you will want to get as much exposure to the field by joining clubs like the society of automotive engineers so you can participate in various competitions. This will give you something to put on your resume and get you that hands on experience that is so valuable for your career. One big area of research at the moment is self driving cars. This is where you'll see much more than just mechanical engineering working on these vehicles. People from all disciplines including electrical engineers, computer engineers, materials engineers, computer scientists, and more are needed for these projects. However, there are more areas of research that are briefly mentioned in the video beyond self driving cars. *************************************************** Forbes Article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2017/06/27/what-will-mechanical-engineers-do-after-most-cars-go-electric/#459db26e6387 *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Hi!Thankyou so much,this video is quite helpful.However i wanted to ask that ecer since i was a kid my dream was to make video games and chose software engenieering for that.However later when i saw making of games the processes seemed creppy to me and uncomfortable the way they are detailing chracter modles and facial animations.I then searched a quiz on google to help me chose my engenieering fiels since i am doing engeniering.The ans was enviormental.Now have searched alot but i dont find satisfactory detail related to it.Can you please make a video like this on enviormental engeenireing.That will be very helpful for me :)

how does math come into the picture in automotive engineering ? in other words what is math used for mostly in automotive engineering ?? anyone can answer me that??
Inspiration _ (4 months ago)
dope0royalty Math is used very frequently in: algorithms, braking, drag coefficients, downforce, suspension stiffness, psi, and so many more things. I want to be an automotive designer and eventually move into performance engine design, but both of these jobs require calculations for costs, weight, momentum, aerodynamics, and Hell, even add in rear differential clutch discs. Most math is just intermediate algebra, physics, and trigonometry. Calculating quadratic curves and parabolas is also useful, as well as a decent and general knowledge in Calculus can’t hurt.

Evy Negrete in fallout 4 game you dont require thinking maths from modding stuff, being a repair guy like a technician
Evy Negrete (2 months ago)
Optic500 If you’re going to be an engineer you have to like math. Every single engineering subsection involves a lot of math.
Inspiration _ (4 months ago)
Optic500 No. You can use a computer to solve the equations but the question is, where do you get the equation from? You have to setup the equation which is where most of the knowledge of mathematics becomes critical. The formula for calculating drag can be remembered and used in a calculator, but you need accurate measurements involving things like angles, xyz axis, friction with air, material, and many more variables. An advanced knowledge in math is required because of the amount of calculations that must be done for the designing and fabrication of parts. It doesn’t work like a computer will solve anything. It’s not like I can look up “what’s the cure to cancer” much similarly to “what’s the drag coefficient of a — sized piece of — which has a gross weight of — and an angle of — relative to — “. A computer can’t reason. That is why you need advanced mathematics skills to even be considered for hire.
Optic500 (4 months ago)
White Wolf but they should have computers to do that fot them, and let the mechanics fit the parts. Im sure a garage wouldn't mind if your maths is shit aslong as your good at fitting

If i want to become a car designer, regarding just the appearance of the vehicle ( although i know i 'd have to take aerodynamics and safety measures into consideration ), should i study industrial design ( which will lead up to a master on automotive design ) or automotive engineering? I need to know , next year i am planning on going to college!

Francisco Ariagno (9 months ago)
This video helped me out a lot, but I am still having this issue of which engineering I should take, because I really like cars (and I mean a lot), but if choose only this engineering (automotive) I would probably gonna be doomed to the automotive industry (which in a way it's ok, but what if wanna change onto another industry). And that's where it comes the other option of studying electrical engineering as it gives me more job options/offer and a more bigger area (more industry), because I also like the trend of electric cars and renewable energy sources and generation, which also may give me other abroad job offers which I am very keen of (like moving to Australia, New Zealand or Canada, to name some). But what makes me go to automotive engineering is that the stuff that you should learn seem to be much more interesting than the electrical engineering. So after all this, I want you to tell me what should I do?. (I am from Argentina and thanks God I have both engineering's in my country)

Which country is best for getting degree in automotive engineering and scope for good carrier? (Neglect USA)
hj hfj (8 months ago)
I just did some online research. And to answer your question, it's pretty self explanatory. The countries with institutes that offer the best Automotive Engineering programs would be from the nations that manufacturer some of the best cars in the world! So to answer your question that would be AMERICA, GERMANY and obviously JAPAN! I've been looking into Nagoya University - Automotive Engineering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcxadDrz_T0
MajorPrep (9 months ago)
I really don't know this answer but was curious and did a very quick google search and it said Germany is the best for automotive applications.

I’m stuck between Automotive and Machanical too, but heard automotive is less math and a little more science.
MajorPrep (10 months ago)
That depends on you but because mechanical is so broad I tend to lean toward that cause there is so much you can do. That's only my opinion though.

imOpinionn (10 months ago)
I don't know how common these things are in the US but in Germany at least we have programs that take about 60% of any given engineering major and about 60% of what people in business majors will take and teach them together. The idea is to have broad knowledge in both fields and to then primarily work in project management or quality management. Could you do a video on that, given of course, that you are familiar with similar programs!
MajorPrep (10 months ago)
That is something I am not too familiar with. But if I can find someone who has experience with it then I would be happy to get a video
Mr Nabzio (10 months ago)

Eric Agbayani (10 months ago)
would you recommend a major in statistics?
Pascal (10 months ago)
Do you would prefer Mechatronics or Automotive Engineering?
MajorPrep (10 months ago)
Well like I said automotive engineering isn't really a major (at least at most schools). So I would go with mechatronics cause it's more broad and it can still lead you into the automotive field.

Could you do a video on if you think the average person could graduate with an engineering degree? As in, you don't have to be gifted in the maths or sciences
