The Department of Automobile Engineering at MIT was established in the year 1949, with under-graduate Programme in Automobile Engineering for Science graduates (B.Sc). Subsequently, on the formation of Anna University in 1978, MIT has become one of the constituent institutions of the University and hence, the Department has also become a department of Anna University. The postgraduate Programme was started in 1978. This is the only pioneering Institute which offers both UG and PG Programmes in Automobile Engineering in the whole of India, besides offering MS (by research) and Ph.D. Programmes. Since 1996 4 year B.Tech undergraduate programme for higher secondary education is being offered. 
The young and vibrant faculty is the backbone of the department. All of them are highly qualified and well experienced. All the faculty members are publishing the findings of their research work in reputed journals and conferences at regular intervals. The department has a separate library of its own having more than five hundred books including a number of rare books on Automobile Engineering. It also keeps the research thesis and project works of the students of Automobile Engineering.
Every year about 85% of our students are recruited as soon as they enter the seventh semester. Some of the companies where our students have secured campus placement include: Ashok Leyland, Tate Motors, Ford, Hyundai, Daimler benz, Caterpillar, Maruthi, TVS, Renault-Nissan etc. Some are pursuing higher studies in UK, USA & Germany.
Besides the academic activities, the department is dynamically involved in the Research and Development activities with “CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE IN AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY” (CEAT) and “CENTRE FOR AUTOMOTIVE RESEARCH AND TRAINING” (CART)
