Students graduating from the Automotive Engineering Program generally directly enter companies after graduation or continue their study in a postgraduate educational program, working towards becoming company researchers or university professors. Students entering companies in the automotive industry after graduation are expected to work on the research and development of safe and high-performance automobiles that contribute to a sustainable society. Since automobiles are integrated systems of various high technologies, a broad range of knowledge is necessary to develop such systems. Some students, therefore, also join laboratories other than those in mechanical or electrical engineering and contribute to companies in many other fields.
Examples of Career Paths
Students graduating from the Mechanical Engineering course are expected to engage in research and development of structures, vibration suppression, control of mechanical systems, mobility, production engineering in automotive plants, and so on.
