Automobile Servicing Laboratory:
Almost all of the essential tools and gauges are available in the Lab. Sufficient number of engines (both petrol and diesel) along with automobile components and parts are there to impart training to the students. Ancillary equipments like Air Compressor, Tool post Lift, Wheel Balancing Machine, Spark Plus cleaning and testing machine, pneumatic tools and hydraulic tools are being installed in the Lab.
We already have a service station, which is fully functional.

Purpose of the Lab
The lab is meant to familiarize the students with dismantling, servicing, testing and assembling of the engines, the various assemblies and subassemblies and various systems of an automobile. Finally, a student must be capable of undertaking and working on a project of his own with confidence.

Automobile electrical laboratory
Almost all equipments and tools for wiring of passenger cars and commercial vehicles, accessories for lighting, wiring of ignition system are available. Automobile batteries – lead acid cells, battery charger, cell tester, other testing devices, Dynamoc, starter, motor and alternator are available in the lab. The lab is being updated with the addition of nrewer tools and equipments.

Automobile Engineering Association
This is a forum which provides opportunities for co-curricular activities, such as arranging lecture-cum-demonstration sessions by expert professionals, debates on relevant topics, arranging visits to manufacturing units, garages and service centres.  Thereby the academic studies will be supplemented and the students will be exposed to new developments in the field.

Following are the office bearers of the association:
President: Mr. Joseph Dominic K. (Lecturer)
Secretary: Mr. Jewel Jacob (D3 Auto student)

Scope of Automobile Engineering Diploma holders
Automobile Engineering Diploma holders have vast employment opportunities, ranging from lower to middle level management positions in automobile manufacturing 7units, vehicle component manufacturing companies, ancillary automobile units, garages, service centres, space science centre (VSSC), etc. They could fill the positions of service managers, motor vehicle inspectors (MVI), maintenance supervisors/managers, plant managers, marketing executives, scientific assistants, etc.
As automobile manufacturing sector forms a sun rise area in the overall spectrum of our economic development, the employment opportunities for trained personnel have witnessed exponential growth over the years.
The opening for higher studies and professional development are aplenty. A diploma holder in automobile engineering with 60% marks could go for B.Tech (Automobile/Mechanical) inside or outside the state.
