Q: I write from India; currently I am in my last year of pre-university schooling. I am very interested in engineering, and especially automobile engineering. I am really interested in designing automobiles. What are the top engineering schools in the world where I could pursue these interests?

Automotive engineering is an applied science that includes elements of Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering, and Safety engineering as applied to the manufacture and operation of automobiles, buses and trucks.(source: Answerhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_engineering )

Mechanical engineering is a very broad field that involves the application of physical principles for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is made up of a number of subdisciplines concerned with the mechanics, kinematics (movement), and energy of physical objects. Practitioners of mechanical engineering, known as mechanical engineers, use principles such as heat, force, and the conservation of mass and energy in contributing to the design of vehicles and aircraft, heating cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery, and much more.

There are many colleges and universities that offer courses specializing in the area of automotive. A mechanical engineering degree would give you the necessary educational background to work in the automotive, aerospace or commercial vehicle industry, and with vehicles being more computerized and electronic, you may also want to consider a degree in electrical engineering.
