How Much Can You Earn as an Automotive Engineer? Hmmm... Though question to answer.
It's not that easy to get an Engineering degree, you need to put a lot of effort, and you need to study a lot. First of all, if you're not into math and logical thinking, engineering isn't the right place for you.
As an Automotive Engineer, you have plenty of job opportunities, but just like in any industry, it's really tough at the beginning when you don't have any working experience.
To gain experience at first, it would be highly recommended to attend internships or even work as a volunteer.
Now let's get a bit into numbers.
On average, a junior automotive engineer should expect anywhere from 1200 to 1700 euros per month in Europe, but it really depends on the country that you live in. Unfortunately, Romania has a low GDP, and as a junior Automotive Engineer here you are paid between 300 and 600 euros per month. I believe in the United States you could also expect around $1,500 at the beginning.
When you gain at least 3 years experience, things start to change. In Europe you should see over 2,000 euros.
Senior Automotive Engineers should expect around 3 to 4 thousand euros per month in Europe and around 3 to 5 thousand dollars in the United States.
I think the average salary for an Automotive Engineer around the world is around $2,500, which isn't that much in my opinion. You can make a decent living, but it won't make you a millionaire.
I would say that the maximum salary that you could earn as an Automotive Engineer is around $15,000 per month, but this happens only if you are in Elite positions. Something like a Chief Designer at BMW, or a Chief Project Manager at Lamborghini.
These kind of jobs are rare, so if you're planning to get into Engineering and get rich quickly, study something else.
The most common jobs that I've seen for Automotive Engineers are:
- designers in Computer Aided Design for car parts
- quality checkers
- work at Car Dealers or Car Shops
In Romania, if you have an Automotive Engineering degree, you have the rights to work as a MOT tester like I do. I don't know how things work in other countries, but I believe you have other opportunities as well.
Engineering isn't as paid as IT, programming or web development. Engineering is strictly for those who love science, and the automotive specialty is for those who love cars.
I absolutely denied working in a factory, I feel imprisoned there, honestly. I have studied Automotive Engineering, because I really have a passion for cars and I wanted to get a better understanding of them.
If you have the right mindset, you can make money in many other ways, a degree should just open your mind a little bit, but it shouldn't limit you.
Before I got into this Engineering thing, I had lots of plans, I thought I could work abroad for different companies, but trust me, elite jobs will never be available for regular people so easily.
The jobs that you will always find available are the hardest ones and the least paid.
I met people who had great jobs as Engineers, but those kinds of people are rare.
So, who is Automotive Engineering for?
If you love science, math, physics and cars
If you want to learn Computer Aided Design
If you want to start your own business and you need a Degree to learn more about how things work
If you love cars and you have knowledge about cars
If you are all about the money, this degree isn't for you, trust me. If you're all about the money, you should study marketing, web development, IT, programming, app development, things like that.
I face a lot of struggles before I graduated, I changed 2 jobs in this area, and I currently work as a MOT tester and I also diagnose and test cars. It's not the best job in the world, but it's fine at the moment.

I've been obsessed with cars since the age of 4. So, I would say that car is my life. I'm studying maths and physics at the moment but I'm not exactly good at them. Do you guys think that I should get an Automotive Engineering degree next year when I go to uni? I have a passion with cars, would it be too late for me to drill into physics and maths now?
Im not the best in math but i want to design cars.. Make cars better.. Faster.. And i would really want to work in Mac Laren.. So how much i would actually get paid or what should i do... I love cars.. I love science.. But not the best in math..so how much would i earn do you think that i should be an automotive engineer
You should do what you're passionate about. There are people who are passionate about engineering, cars, etc. We couldn't be all engineers, musicians, artists or doctors. Every person has a specific purpose in life, so we need to find our voice.
It wasn't easy for me, either, but I enjoyed every moment of studying.
Let's say that I am very interested in stealing expensive cars to make the security even better (as a camouflage)
It shouldn't be hard to do so right? There are IT classes I guess at masters degree?
I have so many questions, I would love to talk to you in private if you don't mind
A degree gives you an idea as a whole about a domain. In my case, about cars. I test drive cars, run MOT tests, brake tests, emissions tests, I talk to clients, and a few other things. Don't imagine that a degree will make you an automotive God.
To start a Porsche Panamera you need to work in the IT industry, it's a lot of tech in that car., and thus, security barriers.
So, you want to steal Porsches, but you want a degree first?
Totally agree. Start from the beginning and "exercise" do a lot of practice. It took my years of catching up but I got my mechanical engineering degree. Dont let math stop you. Spend the time and you will enjoy it I promise.
If you really want to become an engineer, take math from the beginning, focus on what you don't understand. You have plenty of online courses, books, eBooks. You just need to exercise.
Once you start understanding it, you will love it! I have always been a Grade A student at math, and it was like a drug. Once you understand it, you want to understand even more.
It's totally possible.
Thank you! Really glad to have you here. Yes, I love cars, and this is just the beginning. I have HUGE plans for this channel. I don't have enough time my channel isn't big enough to do what I would love to, but I will one day, hopefully.
99Vehicles TV I’m am very confused after watching your video. I was looking at the average amount a automotive engineering makes and it’s around 80k. Just to clarify this is automotive engineering not automobile engineering where u fix cars. Two different jobs and careers.
Possibilities are endless... at the beginning, you start with $10 / hour... in the middle range $25 - $40/hour... and you can get as high as $150/hour if you are experienced, talented, and you have a great position.
brother...i have been reading your post on qoura app...and just reached your page...i would like to suggest you that keep your content short as you've done in this video...and make videos TO THE POINT..😊😊😊
and one more thing bro..change your background...
apoligises for bad english..
give me reply if you think that my comment would be useful.. 😊
+Ganesh Jadhav if you love to design parts, keep in mind that at the beginning you will design only plastic components for the interior. Don't imagine that you will start designing Ferrari engines...
If you enjoy doing design and you love cars, you could give it a shot. It's paid pretty well if you become a senior (+5 years of experience in design).
Good luck :)
Sagar Thakur dunno. mechanical engineering you need physics and the most important is math which I'm naturally good at. but if you're not good at math then its not for you. however it doesn't mean you aren't a car enthusiast. you can have a job that you like that isn't about cars or is similar to cars and get a decent money then you can have the car you want and if you earn good money mod your car if you want
+Albert S. I am doing my best to be helpful :-) I'm glad you liked it. The next video will be "The Future of Cars" which I filmed yesterday. I have to edit the footage. Hope you will like it as well.
If you have any video suggestions, let me know, I will do my best.
