This course aims to develop your understanding of the latest developments, drivers and practices of the automotive, transport and mobility designer beyond merely illustration and styling. You will have the opportunity to learn to create innovative product design solutions in a range of styles and media, which factor in purpose, usability, materials, ecology, desirability, technological feasibility and professional constraints.
You will progress from a general foundation in practical and theoretical automotive and transport design capabilities to more specialist knowledge, culminating with your final project. We focus on both digital and physical 3D modelling, providing you with deeper understanding of digital tools and visualisation techniques. Emphasis is also placed on the development of interpersonal skills to better prepare you to work in teams, as a collaborator, conciliator or leader with patrons, makers, users and specialist interest groups.
