Imp. Dates :

This course Starts on 16th Sept. 2017 and will continue until 26th Sept. 2017.

You can take this course at any time in between these dates.


You don’t need to have a degree in Mechanical or Automobile Engineering to understand the working of Automobiles!

This course is all about learning the working of cars right from basics. The course will take you on a journey in which you will learn about automobiles piece by piece. We will take the most common automobile – A Car and then understand its working by taking different parts of it, analyzing it closely and then comprehending how different parts work together enabling the vehicle to move from one point to another smoothly.

I will not be using unnecessary jargon and terms that only a car mechanic will be knowing! The journey will be for people from a variety of backgrounds. So even if you are a person involved in Biology Lab or in making Android apps, you can happily enroll in the course if you have interest in knowing about Cars,

The course will be mostly in form of video lectures, where I will be explaining the different components using diagrams on the whiteboard. For very complicated diagrams, I will be including images and pdfs so that your understanding can become concrete. It can take a total of 2-2.5 hours for completing the entire course.

To make this more interesting, I promise to reply to each and every genuine query of the students, irrespective of the level of toughness of the query WITHIN 24 HOURS! I wish to have every student enrolled in the class, enjoy this journey with me.

At the end of the course, you will have a strong understanding of what happens inside the car and how different components work together in making a car ride comfortable while moving from one place to another.

What are the requirements?

  • Just take the course with a fresh mind – like a child willing to explore something new and deep.
  • Basic understanding of the terms like force, pressure, velocity, acceleration etc, will be helpful, though not compulsory.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand How Cars work right from basics.
  • Appreciate Mechanical Engineering, Physics and their impact in making the world around you a better place.
  • Dive deep in any field related to Automobiles of any type, in future.

What is the target audience?

  • Curiosity to learn about Cars is the most important prerequisite for being successful in this course.
  • Any one with basic (very) knowledge of physics can take this course.

  • Automotive Engineering for Competition – BAJA SAE

    Outstanding! 5

    They were not kidding when they said the course was "demanding". I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them. The sense of satisfaction I gained from completing each problem set was tremendous and even though the learning curve is steep (to say the least), I am now comfortable in my understanding of the basics of Automotive. I guarantee you will be pulling your hair out sometimes if you take this course, but you will have tremendous fun most of the time and the sense of accomplishment is exhilarating!
