Transportation Design Track

Within CIA’s nationally acclaimed Industrial Design major, you may choose the Transportation Design track in order to focus your career on meeting the ever-changing needs of companies that build cars, trucks, and motorcycles. You’ll learn from and connect with automotive designers working at the top of this field, and explore its many career options.

Transportation design professionals may specialize in exteriors, interiors, lighting, and clay modeling. As new technology creates possibilities around self-driving vehicles, designers of all kinds will be called upon to rethink how exterior and interior spaces are used.

Classes take place in individual student studios and collaborative spaces. You’ll have easy access to cutting-edge computer technology, shop facilities, presentation rooms, project rooms, and rapid prototyping.

You’ll be working with dedicated Transportation Design faculty members, as well as designer-instructors from GM, Chrysler Fiat, and other manufacturers. You’ll begin course projects with research, then move to conceptualization, refinement, and presentation. You will build a strong understanding of all aspects of the profession.
