Automotive Engineering

What is it?

Automotive engineering focuses on the application, design, and manufacturing of various types of automobiles. Mathematics is key in this field as it is applied in the design and production of vehicles. This sector is growing rapidly in multiple areas, particularly with the increasing demand for electric vehicles, low emissions, and environmental requirements.
