Automotive engineering is a branch of vehicle engineering that involves the design and manufacture of motorbikes, motor vehicles, trucks and their respective subparts. Several areas of study such as mechanical, electronic, software and safety systems are involved within this field.

Designing and manufacturing are continuous processes and experts in this field are accountable from the concept stage through to the end of production stage of the whole manufacturing process. Production, development and manufacturing are the three major components in this field and experts are trained to be proficient in all three areas.

Importantly, the specialists working in this field are accountable for risk and safety management which involves implementing safety systems in vehicles to safeguard against possible accidents or failures. They must also adhere to industry regulations and safety standards when designing and manufacturing machinery to ensure the highest levels of safety.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.
