The Department of Automobile Engineering at MIT was established in the year 1949, with under-graduate Programme in Automobile Engineering for Science graduates (B.Sc). Subsequently, on the formation of Anna University in 1978, MIT has become one of the constituent institutions of the University and hence, the Department has also become a department of Anna University. The postgraduate Programme was started in 1978. This is the only pioneering Institute which offers both UG and PG Programmes in Automobile Engineering in the whole of India, besides offering MS (by research) and Ph.D. Programmes. Since 1996 4 year B.Tech undergraduate programme for higher secondary education is being offered. Besides the academic activities, the department is dynamically involved in the Research and Development activities with “CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE IN AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY” (CEAT) and “CENTRE FOR AUTOMOTIVE RESEARCH AND TRAINING” (CART)
