Modern automotive engineering, along with aerospace engineering and marine engineering, is a branch of automobile engineering, incorporating elements of mechanical, electrical, electronic, software and safety engineering as applied to the design, manufacture and operation of motorcycles, automobiles, buses and trucks and their respective engineering subsystems.
Some of the engineering attributes and disciplines that are of importance to the automotive engineer and many of the other aspects are included in it:
Manufacturing Engineers are responsible for ensuring proper production of the automotive components or complete vehicles. While the development engineers are responsible for the function of the vehicle, manufacturing engineers are responsible for the safe and effective production of the vehicle. This group of engineers consist of Process Engineers, Logistic Coordinators, Tooling Engineers, Robotics Engineers, and Assembly Planners.
