From computer science to Automobiles! πŸ˜€

I believe your best bet is to go for a PG course in Automobile engineering from a university in USA/UK. I'm not too sure if background in CS would help.

BTW, considering the fact that you're interested in Automobiles, why did you not choose Mechanical/Automobile engineering as your engineering discipline?

Addendum: I just stumbled upon your post in following thread -> https://www.crazyengineers.com/forum/ce-careers-jobs-higher-education/5195-preparing-gmat.html , it looks to me that you are also preparing for GMAT!

In my opinion, first of all, you need to decide what you really want to do and where your interests are.
buddy,you can go for a course in transportation design course in NID,Ahmedabad,but m unsure abt the qualifying criteria,best is u can choose a career in embedded programming,automotive electronics is on a high!!!

Thanks a bunch to both of you.you are right The_Big_K i must know what i really want to do.Here goes,now that i have completed my UG all i want is to get into a job of my choice and since i am not interested in the IT industry i wish i would get a job in the area of my interest which is Automobiles.Since i felt my CS will not really help ,i wanted to know what can actually get me there.And as far as GMAT is considered yeah i am preparing.Thats because i will be doing an MBA in the future like 3-4 years from now and after having worked for at least 2 years and after gaining some work experience.This is what i have planned.If you feel I am being stupid please do guide me.And as for Saurav thanks pal.I'll check out the courses.Cheers

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you're doing anything that's stupid. I've been interacting with lots of engineers and I know that it helps if you are very clear about what you want to do in life.

hello guys, this story seems to repeat... i am a 2010 passout b.e in c.s, i have been doin an internship in s/w but i really want to pursue my dreams, since i have a basic degree now, i want to do what i like now. i am really crazy bout automobiles, not just the names and the looks, i deeeply get involved with the running of an i.c engine, turbochargers, and muc much more, every running aspect of a vehicle drives me crazy. now that u got an idea of my passion, i urge my friends here to please guide me with what studies i can pursue to get into that field, i am willing to study abroad if the prospects are better.

Well, I think it's never too late to realize where your passion is. If you found your love in automobiles; you'll have to figure out a way to get into it. There are ways which may not be *easy* but you can always try them to find your love.

1. Depending on your situation, you can try to develop knowledge about automobiles and start talking to potential recruiters who *might* be willing to offer you a job by seeing your passion.

2. Start working on part-time projects. Come up with something that works and catches the attention of auto-makers. Any automobile recruiter will be more interested in your real-life projects than your degree or experience. Try it.

3. Try to find information about higher-study opportunities for CS/IT engineers who're willing to get into mechanical & automobile domain. You might find a course somewhere in the world. That could just be a good starting point.
