Congradulations on good scoring in SSC.You can do either diploma in automobile engineering or Degree in automobile engineering. Diploma is 3 years cource and Degree is 4 years cource.With degree/diploma in Mechanical engineering also you can get into Automobile field.
With good percentage and knowledge you can be hired by Automotive manufactureres or Autocomponent manufactureres or atleast by dealers . These days lot of manufacturers are comming up with plants in India and hence there is huge scope automobile engineering. Also if you also start own business of 2/4 or heavy vehicle garage and make helhy earning.
One important point is if you want to acheive something in Automobile engineering then you should have alround intrest including having onhand experience.

Hi Mr.Vyas,

Don't join these private colleges as they ask more money in the form of either hefty fees or donation etc., as you got good scores in SSC search for govt diploma colleges where admission is based on your ssc marks and admission test and fees are also very very nominal only few thousands
