Automobile engineers are engaged in design, development , testing and assembly of land vehicles including cars and earth moving equipment's. A scientific temper , an analytical mind, problem solving nature, imagination, interest in technological development , ability to communicate with people at all levels, advanced computer skills and ability to prioritize and plan effectively are some of useful attributes to excel in this profession.

To identify whether you have an aptitude to be an automobile engineer , you are advised to get your psychometric assessment done.The psychometric assessment involves assessing the aptitude, interest and personality of an aspirant using standardized psychological tests. The assessment can be completed within 75 minutes to 90 minutes. The assessment can be given offline or online.

The assessment is thoroughly analyzed by psychologists . After the analysis a unique career plan is generated for the student. A career plan highlights the key areas of interest, personality traits and high and low aptitude areas of a student. A student is thoroughly guided by a career counsellor on issues such as suitable subjects for class 11, right career after 12th, eligibility criteria, top institutes offering recommended courses, career opportunities and job prospects. The student is also provided with various tips to overcome their academic concerns. As sometimes in spite of having an aptitude, interest and required personality traits , student finds it difficult to pursue a recommended career.One of the major reason in such cases is poor study skills of a student. During counselling, all academic concerns of student are taken care of.
