COURSE DESCRIPTION

Exciting opportunities exist as interior and exterior designers in automotive and transport companies, and as design consultants. Some graduates chooseto launch their own business. Students learn a range of transferable skills that can be applied to land, sea and air projects.

Students work on transport and industrial design projects in a creative and friendly studio environment. They have access to excellent workshops and modelling facilities, use industry standard software, and are expected to present their work to a professional standard.

Core skills are developed through structured and practical design projects, involving idea generation, drawing and rendering, clay modelling and relevant software. The programme works closely with visiting designers who are involved throughout. Teaching and learning techniques are varied and include individual and group design workshops, tutorials, seminars and presentations.

Students have important technical and CAD input throughout the programmes from the Faculty of Arts and Creative Technologies, and complete a major design project in Year 3 in an area of personal interest. This flexibility gives the means to engage indulge in truly original and innovative thinking.

Our aims are to equip students with a broadrange of specialist and transferable skills. The programme provides an opportunity to take part in work placements and to enter national design competitions. Students also exhibit their designs to the general public and potential employers at the end-of-year show.
