Automotive Engineering Diploma at Nyandarua National Polytechnic.
This Automotive Engineering course offered at Nyandarua National Polytechnic is a 3 years Diploma program accredited by KNEC.
Automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering, that incorporates elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software, and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture, and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.
This Diploma in automotive engineering provides the learner with adequate knowledge required for the design, development, fabrication, and testing of vehicles or vehicle components from the concept stage to the production stage. Production, development, and manufacturing are the three major functions in this field. Students study courses like technical drawing, diesel engine theory, or automobile power systems.
This Automotive Engineering course combines tools and methods used in Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, Safety, and Software Engineering. These instruments allow engineers to integrate functionality, safety, and aesthetics in order to create perfect driving machines. In the Automotive Engineering field, you can specialize in the design, research, development, testing, and quality control, or the production of vehicles and automotive components.
A diploma in automotive engineering will prepare students for an entry-level or assistant position in a variety of fields. Several years of experience, staying current with new technologies, or possibly further education may be necessary for advancement in this field, but there are many job options available. Jobs can be found in the public and private sectors, in research and development, and in product implementation. Some employment opportunities include positions like automotive engineering technician, automotive design engineer, mechanical engineer, product designer, or mechanical engineer.
