Program Description

We designed this exciting course in Automotive and Transport Design (BA) to give you an opportunity to develop the skills and expertise to produce innovative and visionary designs for all forms of transport. This includes cars, motorbikes, boats, luxury yachts, construction vehicles, and vehicle interiors, as well as emerging areas such as electric vehicles and personal mobility devices.

We have current excellent industry links, with diverse employers such as Jaguar Land Rover, Herman Miller, Lotus, Dyson, Aston Martin, Speedo, Ford, and Electrolux. These may give you opportunities for ‘live’ collaborative projects, work placements, industry visits, design competitions, and expert advice through regular guest lectures. You can start building your contacts and gain the networking experience to establish yourself as a design professional long before you graduate.

We have gained an international reputation for automotive research and teaching covering design, engineering, business, and media. We are a former winner of ‘Best Design School’ in the World Automotive Design competition. We have hosted major symposiums on the future of transport design, including RINA conferences and the ITS-UK Automotive User Interest Group.
