Rationale
As we know that, in present times, automobile industries has undergone wide variety of technological development and because of this the need of industries has changed significantly. Modern cars are as much electronic as they are mechanical, thus creating a new Autotronic area (Automobile+Electronic). A modern car has several control modules, which monitor and manage most of the major systems in the vehicle. The growing demands for complex features, including increased safety, increased comfort, and driver assistance systems or to comply with legal requirements also increases the demands placed on diagnostics, maintenance and repair. As a result of the growing technical complexity of cars a continuous need to upgrade the technical competencies of diploma holder is must. Some automobile companies have already developed driver less cars. So, it is must for mechatronic engineers, interested to work in automobile sector, to be skilled in these technologies.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Identify electronic components in automobiles.
ii. Create a Logic circuit by logic gates.
iii. Use Programmable logic control in automobiles.
iv. Select right type of transducer, sensor and actuator.
v. Select microprocessor for application in automobiles.
