This Automotive Design MA course is suitable for both aspiring
practitioners of automotive design and those aiming for design
management positions.

This course will equip you with the skills required of a designer in
the automotive industry. It contains elements of two and
three-dimensional design and provides the opportunity to apply CAD to
automotive projects.

The first term will be spent achieving a grounding in the basics of
automotive design. Vehicle packaging, automotive modelling, and the
business of the automotive industry are all covered in lectures,
seminars and studio classes within the first three months. We have an
ongoing programme of visiting lectures delivered by senior figures in
automotive design, automotive journalism and business.

The second term will involve further skill developments plus a ‘live’
design project run in conjunction with the automotive industry. Our
recent collaborators include PSA (Peugeot-Citroen), Ford and Renault.
During this exciting project you will learn to work in teams to
achieve a design output for demanding clients.

During the third term you will undertake more design projects and
start researching for your MA major project. Your major project takes
up the whole of the final term, leading up to the industry-sponsored
MA Degree Show at the end of the year.
