I’d like to do automobile engineering
I am in class XI, aiming to do engineering. I do not like the usual mechanical, civil, etc sorts of engineering branches; rather I’d like to do automobile engineering. Will it offer good job opportunities with a high salary like those given to mechanical or civil engineering graduates?

Automobile engineers find employment in companies manufacturing automobiles and in maintenance and service stations. Opportunities also exist in the defence sector. With the expansion of automobile industries and increasing demand for vehicles, the demand for automobile engineering is growing. Many foreign automobile giants have also set up units in India. Salaries are at par with engineers having other specializations. However, these vary with the organization one joins, and the qualifications of the employee.
