GRADUATES OF THE MFA PROGRAM IN TRANSPORTATION DESIGN WILL BE INNOVATORS, IN AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN AND ALL ASPECTS OF MOBILITY, ALWAYS WITH AN EYE TOWARD THE FUTURE

Building on your art and creativity, the College’s MFA program in Transportation Design will bring you together with other bright, forward-thinking students from design and engineering disciplines who want to delve into the invention and entrepreneurial aspects of transportation design.

In this program, you will take on the role of “designer as inventor,” and learn how to integrate innovation with real-world business strategy, including business practices, research, brand identity, vehicle architecture and mobility as a system. The curriculum will lead you through a complete design process – extensive research, sketching and 3D rendering, animation, core competencies analysis and more – and will include special projects that explore innovation through forms and materials, functionality and engineering. It’s a unique approach that will teach you how to combine creativity and research with business realities to create new brand value.

Studying at CCS will put you at the very center of transportation design. In the College’s studios and labs – housed in the same building where Harley Earl, the first modern automotive designer, and other renowned researchers and designers pioneered groundbreaking vehicles – an automotive executive or other industry leader is very likely to stop in to engage informally with students. The College’s alumni are designers at every major car manufacturer and nearly all the Tier 1 auto suppliers, at racing and defense companies like Pratt & Miller, and consulting in firms as far away as Vietnam and Abu Dhabi. You will participate in design competitions, internships and sponsored projects from the Big 3 and Tier 1 and 2 suppliers. With these exceptional networking advantages, CCS is the ideal place to develop the knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial outlook that will enable you to influence the future of transportation.
