Hey Harsha, how are you doing?

So I have some peers who did their MS in automotive engineering and from what I've heard from them, MS in automotive engineering, like any other MS program, requires standard eligibility criteria. With slight difference in demanding subjects and understanding, it's the same. When you apply for a more technical program such as automotive engineering, computer science or machine learning, you expect the GPA requirement to be much higher, however, it is not. Most particularly, the tech institutes have their own selection criteria to fulfil. It is quite common to see the same score requirements for an MBA and an automotive engineering program. In general, there is not a big difference. The most common eligibility requirements are 3 or 4-year bachelor degree, CV/resume, language proficiency test score, LORs and SOP (if required).

Your bachelor's needed to be from an engineering field or relevant subject. Often recommended subjects like physics and mathematics, it is not always the case for secondary education. In fact, it is possible for you to pursue an MS in automotive engineering with an arts or commerce background. As for your GPA requirement, it generally stays around 3. However the same cannot be stated for all institutes globally. You may find a 4-5 GPA requirement to be eligible, but those are usually for much specialized automotive engineering programs.


According to me, you should create a blueprint of your profile including your academics, extracurriculars, entrance exams preferred, countries preferred etc. as it will help you understand which universities are you eligible for.
