Department of Automobile Engineering

Expert Lectures / Seminars / Workshops / Industrial Visits

CGPIT often conducts workshops and expert lectures for students. Faculties from various Engineering Colleges are invited to impart the knowledge and to enhance the technical skills of our students in core Engineering and Science subjects. Participating students attend live lectures delivered by experienced and proficient faculty in their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the laboratory. Faculty coordinators are appointed in order to take care of the quality of education that is imparted to the new budding technocrats.
