The Automotive Engineering course was first offered by UTM during the 1999/2000 session. The Automotive course is offered as a specialisation of Mechanical Engineering, covering the areas of automotive design, vehicle dynamic and structure, power and transmission (power train), vehicle aerodynamic, electronics, ergonomics, automotive material and production. Hence, graduates of this course would fulfill the need for engineers in the field of Mechanical Engineering as well as the automotive field specialisation.
An automotive engineer will perform activities according to the job scope in the field of research, design, development and production of various types of heavy or light vehicles. In creating or producing the latest design for the proposed vehicle, they will utilise the knowledge learnt such as engine and transmission, vehicle dynamics, aerodynamics, analysis of vehicle structure, electronics and others. These will be undertaken based on quality assurance in order to fulfill the requirement of standards, performance and safety. Usually the automotive engineer works in the area of automotive design and production.
Some may find a career in commercial vehicle manufacturing such as lorries and buses, sport cars, racing cars, tractors and even trains. The market for engineers in the field of automotive in Malaysia has grown rapidly due to the growth in the automotive sector championed by PROTON, PERODUA, MODENAS and HICOM. Several other foreign manufacturers have set up assembly plants for various types of vehicles in Malaysia. In order to support the development in the automotive industry, many automotive components companies have been set up. High performance vehicle sector has also found its way in Malaysia with the involvement of PETRONAS and is expected to grow tremendously.
Additionally, some firms such as Master Builder, Malaysian Truck & Bus and others have ventured into heavy vehicle production, including buses and lorries. Therefore, UTM graduates in the field of Automotive Engineering have a wide career opportunity to take up positions as engineers and managers in the automotive industry either in Malaysia or overseas.
