Bachelor of Automotive Engineering (Hons)

  Institution: Nilai University

Field Of Study:
Level Of Study:
Course Subject:
Engineering - Automotive
Course Intake:

This programme focuses on the design, construction and production of automotive components and assemblies. The degree will provide a solid understanding of core concepts including automotive power plant design (engine and transmission), hybrid and electrical vehicles, vehicle dynamics, vehicle aerodynamics, CAD/CAM/CAE, advanced materials and manufacturing of vehicles.

Students will have an opportunity to be involved in automotive project management and motor racing engineering.

Programme Highlights

Licensed Software

Our engineering programmes feature licensed MATLAB, Simulink, Multisim, Autocad, SolidWorks, Ansys, CNC Simulator and Emulator software to study the advances in the field of Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical, Mechatronics, and Automotive Engineering and to take up in-house projects.

Engineering Enhanced Certification

Engineering students will now have the opportunity to earn enhanced certification which will give you an added advantage in the job market.


Students from the Bachelor of Automotive Engineering (Hons), Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Hons) and Diploma in Mechanical Engineering programmes will be entitled to receive enhanced certification in Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD). This professional certification is achieved with the signing of an MoU with Six Sigma Synergy SdnBhd, which is a franchisee of CADD Centre International.

The training, which is embedded in the syllabus of the respective programmes, will entail instruction in Solidworks and ANSYS software. Solidworks will teach students to create components with parametric methods as well as how to create assemblies. ANSYS will impart knowledge on computer aided engineering analysis using finite element method / finite element analysis (FEM/FEA).


Students will also have the opportunity to conduct training courses/workshops for PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) and HMI (Human Machine Interface). Bistanika as a training partner for Siemens will provide a one day workshop for PLC and HMI and a three-day course for Siemens S7-1200 System.

The one day workshop/seminar provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of PLC and HMI systems and expose you to the latest and most advanced Siemens TIA (Total Integrated Automation) Software.  The Siemens S7-1200 System Course is offered to students wanting to enhance their marketability. The course provides participants with hands-on experience in programming, installation, commissioning and basic fault diagnostics using Siemens S7-1200 hardware and software

These modules have not been made compulsory but will be offered to all engineering students. Those undertaking the Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (Hons), Diploma in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Diploma in Mechatronics are encouraged to attend these training workshops/seminars to equip them with knowledge in PLCs which is very important in process and machine automation. Participants will be issued certificates by Siemens.
