About us

www.car-engineer.com, a new website dedicated to automotive engineering

Starting from 16th of December 2012, a new website dedicated to automotive engineering is launched. www.car-engineer.com is about news and feature articles sourced from automotive industry, academics, and laboratories. It is a completely free website which favors interactivity with the reader through possibility to comment articles, to post articles and to discuss in a coming soon forum. The website is available both in French and English.

www.car-engineer.com is designed and fed by Romain Nicolas and Charlie Constant, two engineers working in the automotive industry and life-long friends.

“We decided to build something together, something linked to our passion: cars. Starting up a business was too challenging as we were just starting our career in our respective companies, so we decided to create this website. It was the best way for us to share our passion and our knowledge with whoever is interested in automotive engineering,” says Charlie Constant.

The website is organized around news coming from press releases but also home-made articles based on several sources. Both news and articles focus on the technical and engineering side of depicted systems and the level of complexity vary from an article to another.

“Everything was done to build an user friendly architecture for the website, as we wanted the reader not to get lost in the complexity of a today’s car. So we decided to split the classification of technical articles in several levels, so that the reader finds easily what he is looking for,” says Romain Nicolas.

www.car-engineer.com contains also an agenda with coming automotive related events, job descriptions and a media area containing photos, videos and tools to download.

  1. Hi,

    I am interested in a database like yours for use in our application to provide information about engines. We would be interested in a comprehensive database with periodic updates.

    We would extend your Excel table with things like firing sequence, engine block layout, fuel (spark or diesel), bore & stroke.

    Do you have a cross reference from Engine Manufacturer and ‘common engine name’ to your Engines?


    1. Hi Jim,

      I don’t at the moment. To get the cross reference and common engine names you would need to crawl the internet I guess, which would take a lot of time (at least too much to me). However, you can buy some databases from companies like Insight, but it is super expensive! Good luck with this journey 🙂

  2. Hello there, you guys have done fabulous job. But new articles are not that frequent these days. And big thank you to you guys.

    1. Thanks Suraj,

      Unfortunately, with a new job and a newborn baby, I don’t have time anymore to post new articles. If you want to contribute, feel free to send us some content!

      Best regards


  3. Hello Romain,
    I would love to do, but i am not directly associated with automotive industry to get the content first hand or can you provide the reference or some genuine source from which i can get the ideas so that i can come up with my own content?


  4. Hello I am a High School student who is looking to do an interview on an Automotive engineer for a research project, I need to record us talking if that is possible. You can call or text me at (607)-342-8405. OR Email me at Alijah.engle@icsd.k12.ny.us Would love to know as soon as possible thank you!!

  5. Love your website!

    Was wondering if either of you would be kind enough to answer about 6 standard written questions from my son who is considering a career as an auto engineer? It would only take about 10 minutes of your time. He is an 8th grader in Florida and working on a project. Your assistance would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you and I look forward to your response.

    1. Hello,

      Thank you! Feel free to send us an email through the contact page with your questions, we will be glad to share our passion for auto engineering!

  6. Dear Mr. Nicolas and Mr. Constant,
    I am a student at Blue Valley High School in Overland Park, KS, and I would love to talk to you about Automotive Engineering. I am required to do a phone interview, so I would be very grateful if you could give me a call. My phone number is (913)213-4403. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
    Lucas Oliver
