Interview Experience
There were 8 people in the GD.
The panelists were looking for new ideas and valid points, steering discussion, letting everyone speak, if someone didn't talk at all then encouraging him/her to speak, starting and concluding topic will be added advantage. Basically, all common GD things.
Interview Tips
But they were mainly looking for people who put forth their ideas and at the same time manage everyone and listen to everyone's point of view.
Round 3

Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How would you specify a pneumatic cylinder to manufacturer ?
  • Question 2: How would you specify spring to manufacturer ?
Interview Experience
It was a 55-minute round with three panels, each having 2 interviewees (HR and Tech).

The questions were all rapid fire type until I stopped answering.
e.g
Panelist: How would you design a knife ?
Me: Safety, ease of use, good grip, ergonomics, less effort.
P: What material ?
Me: alloy steel (i was being careful!)
P: What alloy steel
Me: The one which has more wear resistance.
P: What property gives material more wear resistance ?
Me: Hardness
P: How will you increase material's hardness ?
Me: Annealing
P: Wrong, quenching.
Interview Tips
Prepare by going through all mechanical engineering stuff and go through all the projects thoroughly. Also, prepare everything in your resume.

I think I got in because of my automobile related projects and internships, especially, Mahindra and Mahindra R & D. I guess the interviewee had made his mind to take me in just by looking at my resume, but still during the interview he was testing my knowledge other than design.

    Skill Tips
    I started my preparations in October but I think starting earlier would have helped. My preparation pattern for the placements was:<br /> Core: Going through all the books again. Reading summery of topics, going through GATE/IES materials in Lan.<br /> Projects: All reports, ppt’s.<br /> Interview: Mock interviews with friends / IITMAA<br /> GD: Practice with wing-mates, some online sites like www.indiabix.com.
    General Tips
    Some things that an aspiring candidate should concentrate on:<br />
    1) In depth knowledge and be through with your projects.<br />
    <br />
    2) Resume is one of the key things. If not in shortlisting, then at least in final interview it will matter a lot. Take help from everyone while writing your resume, take feedback from maximum people all around you.<br />
    <br />
    3) Practice GD/ Interview a lot, it will boost your confidence. Finally all comes down to your confidence and how you perform in interview. Don’t be stressed, chill out. Before interview have proper food/water and most importantly stay in a chilled out group of people.<br />
    <br />
    4) Know about the company you are sitting for. Get to know beforehand what they are looking for and then sell yourself in that way. It’s all about marketing yourself by projecting your good points with respect to their requirements.

    I was interviewed on-campus for Technical role at Tata Motors
    Interview Process
    Technical Interview
    Round 1

    Technical Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Run us through your life till this point. [What?!?]
    • Question 2: What are the various differences between the different modes of heat transfer? [A pure core question that tests you to the core]
    • Question 3: I want to design an air-cooled radiator for an engine. How would you decide the number of fins? [Considerable time was spent on this]
    • Question 4: what would you do to reduce the risk of Global Warming posed by using R12 in air-conditioners? [I said use R134a. Apparently, this is not completely environment-friendly. The Americans are trying to fool us by saying so, so we buy their R134a ACs, according to the interviewer]
    • Question 5: What is the difference between a summation and an integral? [This was asked because I mentioned Math as my strongest point]
    • Question 6: In what cases is the Simplex method of solving simultaneous equations used?
    • Question 7: Which sector of the industry do you think will boom in the next five years? [My answer: Statistics]
    • Question 8: Do you have any questions for us?

    Skills Tested

    Skill Tips
    [It's generally good to ask them a question or two here. I asked them if I could choose my preferred work location, and how the work-culture was at Tata Motors]
    General Tips
    1. I felt the Apti was the toughest part in the whole process. 45 seconds is just not sufficient to answer the questions esp. the ones on Probability; so brush up on the math! If you've learnt your concepts well, the technical questions ought to be a breeze.<br />
    2. Make sure you speak some sense at least thrice in the GD, and you're through.<br />
    3. They never once interrupted me in the PI. They waited for me to complete what I was saying, and then the next question was based on my last two sentences! So be very careful of what you're saying esp. while answering the technical questions. Most importantly, be very genuine throughout the interview- speak your heart out- and don't worry about how it's going, in the middle of it!<br />
    <br />
    Good luck.

      2 Hour test (15 English, 25 Quantitative Analysis, 35 Verbal ability, 25 Mechanical Engineering Questions). Questions were basic and simple.
      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Group Discussion Topic
      Are smartphones making us dumb?
      Interview Experience
      I think this played a crucial role in my selection and gave me the upper hand over other candidates. We were 8 candidates in one group for GD. Before starting the actual group discussion they asked us that “any one of you can stand up voluntarily and tell us about your college". Here I took the initiative and spoke about the MNIT (bit of history, about departments, about achievements of the college, about various technical and non-technical activities which was going on.) until he stopped me. Here I would like to give credits to my extra-curricular.
      Round 3

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: Tell me about yourself and family
      • Question 2: Technical Projects Undertaken
      • Question 3: Latest technologies in Automobile Industry
      Interview Experience
      HR plus Technical InterviewAs I was the Placement Coordinator also and was hosting their campus visit too, so i got an edge of it. In the interview first they asked me "Tell me about yourself & family background". Then they asked me "have you done any technical Projects?"

      I told them about SAE Efficycle. Then they asked me "what do you excite in Automobile industry?" I told them about Latest technology and SUVs. Then they asked about what are the latest technologies in Automobile industries. I told them about CRDI & VVT. Then they asked me if I give 5 lacs rupees and ask you to buy a car which parameters you will look as a mechanical engineers? Then they ask me about Turbocharger? Then they try to puzzle me. They ask me that if we give you the “HR” profile will you accept it? I said no. I told them according to my qualification, I fit to a technical profile and it also excites me. Here they were basically cross-checking me interest.
      Interview Tips
      1. Be aware about the latest technologies in Automobile.

      2. You should know basics of Automobile Engineering & IC Engine

      3. Be confident & genuine in interview , don’t just give abrupt answer, if you don’t know the answer then tell them that I don’t know the answer or I am not recalling it.

      Round 1

      Test

      Test Sections
      • Section 1: Written
      Interview Experience
      There are technical , aptitude and English. Anyone who have studied for GATE can do technical easily. For aptitude and English, it is just time management that matters. So, do aptitude questions as far as possible.
      I did almost all questions in all three sections. In technical section, I could not do last 3 question as time was over. That shows questions were very easy. In aptitude and english , almost all questions are simple except some tricky one.
      Interview Tips
      Do not waste time in any section, in which you have doubt as it was just a time management game and other questions are waiting to be answered that you know. You can easily find Tata Motors campus selection question paper online. If your aptitude is weak, give one week time for aptitude preparation.
      Round 2

      HR Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: HR interview was just a formality.
      Interview Experience
      It was pretty cool 5 min interview in which it was just asked that how was the technical panel and how you felt during interview.
      Round 3

      Technical Interview

      Interview Questions
      • Question 1: So you are Roshan Kumar from Jamshedpur... Why do you want to join TATA Motors?
      • Question 2: It was bit of discussion on FIP
      • Question 3: What may be the number of cars manufactured daily in India?
      • Question 4: Why petrol cannot be used in diesel engine and vice versa?
      • Question 5: What is volatality ? which is more volatile - diesel or petrol?
      • Question 6: He gave me two coupans - on 1st coupan it was written buy anything of worth 20 rs. by this coupan and on 2nd coupan it was written pay 20 rs and buy anything of worth 50 rs. I have been asked to select one coupan.
      • Question 7: Which car you want to buy after you will have enough amount of money?
      • Question 8: Why that car? I told BMW and answered as a status symbol, then he asked is not the problem in india to do everything for status?
      • Question 9: What was your B.tech project and detailed question on it?
      • Question 10: Question on product I made in M.tech..
      • Question 11: What was your internship in B.tech 3 rd year?
      Interview Experience
      The 1st question iteslf shows that technical panel was not basically only core technical , but mix of technical and HR and I think that's why HR panel was just formality. But,  the expectation of answer was not only HR point of view, but mix of both. When I answered just HR point of view then , interviewer(only one man was there to take interview in each case - technical panel and HR panel) asked about my technical interest too like interest in automobile , engine etc.
      Interview Tips
      Just be calm and make your basics clear on IC engine.

        Round 1

        Resume Shortlist

        Interview Experience
        I had a standard resume for this company as per the norms of our institute’s placement cell. For Tata Motors I laid emphasis on both – my technical skills as well as extra-curricular activities.
        Round 2

        Test

        Interview Experience
        The written test had both technical as well as general aptitude questions. The aptitude questions were easy as per the standards of CAT examination. Manufacturing was the major topic that they had asked besides fluid was another important topic. They had also asked topics covering almost all aspects of mechanical engineering. Surface knowledge of the major topics in the mechanical engineering area would be more than sufficient to clear the test.
        Round 3

        Group Discussion

        Group Discussion Topic
        Will India be a Super Power.
        Interview Experience
        The next round was the Group Discussion round and the topic for discussion was “Will India be a Super Power”. The group was around 10 students and 4 students from the group were selected for the next round. They were looking for students with good communication skills and those who can communicate their point in a group.
        Round 4

        HR Interview

        Interview Experience
        The panel began asking questions from my resume. I had written German as one of the languages I knew. So they asked me questions related to German language. They asked me words and their meanings. They then asked me simple technical questions. I had written my interest as Solid mechanics, IC engines and Thermodynamics. My preferred subject was Solid Mechanics but they refused to ask question from it. Instead they questioned me on IC engines - What is brake horse power and questions related to knocking. Most of the questions asked were pretty simple though.

        The HR interview session was pretty long though. They asked me about my aims and aspirations and also about my family. They lay a little more importance to your family values as well as on the fact that whether you will stick with their organization for long term
