first of all there is no discipline called pure "automotive engineering" neither in Sri Lanka or any country which has auto manufacturers. In countries like Germany,France there are degrees with heavy involvement in automotive related simulations for electronics,programming,NVH design etc but its too complicated that no one knows upto expert level all the fields required to build a car on his own.To call oneself an "automobile engineer" ,one has to graduate a 3 or 4years bachelor course in an engineering discipline like Electronics,Electronics systems,mechanical,manufacturing etc and be able to join an automotive manufacturer or supplier. Then depending on the workgroup one would be a specialist in automotive electronics,mechanical design,software,production or Application.

on the other hand there are people who come from workshops/maintenance sector and call themselves "automobile Engineers" without any design experience or knowledge. If one would be able To successfully complete an Engineering Degree, AL results would be a good indication ,although not only that.

sad truth is there are no automotive"engineering" jobs at the moment in Sri Lanka where one would actually design or manufacture anything. Those who claim to be "automobile engineers" are actually senior workshop supervisors. For Some fields like Application/Calibration engineering, Electro magnetic compatibility,Noise/Vibration/Harshaness,PCB layout are Industry knowhow and don't even exist in Universities. Usually Graduates who have studied subjects like Electronics systems,Mechatronics and control theory, RF design,C-programming ,Embedded design are always sought after by employers. In any case,good maths skills are mandatory to pass the exams.

Welcome to the world of motoring SL style.

Sorry, you are in  the wrong country,.. We only have technical collages in SL.

The only thing course in  the automotive field will be the two mentioned before, and can recommend the latter.The Orug'watte  teck collage is a gift from the Japs with a few Mitsubishi's in bits and pieces.

If you look at the forums at AL, we are a country of  wise cracks who don't know how to maintain an automobile engineered and manufactured by others, let alone build one our selves. :D

Good luck.!

TT.

 

P.S. I'm sure this thread will bring out the very best of our enthusiasts hidden within the pages of AL.

The important question is what is your ambition?

Do you want to work as a mechanic? Do you want to work as a workshop supervisor? Do you want to build vehicles? Design vehicles?

Also please don't open multiple threads for the same topic

PS. I*BT is one of the worst in the country for any damn course. I was an academic sometime ago so I know that for a fact.

There are only a very few automobile designers in this world (I mean those who design vehicles from scratch).

Even big-name companies do not design vehicles from scratch. They just reuse existing designs (not just bodies but engines, suspensions and other stuff as well). Thanks to computers, its pretty easy to customize a design and adapt it to the future. A new car is designed from scratch on a very rare occasion. It's even rarer to see a new engine being designed. Most companies prefer to buy designs from companies that specialize in design. Giugiaro, Pininfarina are such companies. Again, those companies customize and sell the same design to many carmakers. That's why vehicles from multiple manufacturers may end up looking similar.

If you want to step in to this field, first thing is you need to get out of Sri Lanka. Even a country like Australia wouldn't do. Italy and Germany are the only possible hotspots for vehicle design. It will be an extremely tough journey and you need to be extremely talented to get anywhere near Peter Schreyer or even Azlan Othman (I hope these names ring a bell).

Of course, you also have the option of doing what Leepu (google the name) does. I (and many others) don't agree with the work he does but he is an artist.

On the other hand, there a lots of other mechanical designing that takes place all over the world. You can always find work in that field - again, not in Sri Lanka.

I feel what you need, is to study mechanical engineering. If you can't get in to a state uni in Sri Lanka, I suggest India. Sri Lankan private unis do not have necessary facilities to teach practical areas of mechanical engineering yet. Indian unis are not as expensive as you think.

What's important is that you know the reality but should not be disheartened. If this is your dream - pursue it. if you don't do it at this age, you will regret when you are past 30.

If you can afford it, go abroad for studies. Contrary to the popular belief, India is not a bad country to study and live.

yes at least they design and manufacture something,regardless of quality.But be prepared for tough competition finding a job after graduation.
