PRE-REQUISITES / QUALIFICATIONS
None: Only Passion for CARS!
Transportation / Automobile design is the process of designing the appearance of automobiles, including cars, trucks, vans, buses, and even motorcycles for the mutual benefit of both user and manufacturer.
Every automobile starts with a simple idea, and it’s a transportation designer’s job to come up with these ideas. The interior and exterior of every vehicle on the market today was designed by automobile designers. These designers are usually responsible for the styling which means to make the vehicle attractive and are also partly responsible for designing the shape of the car as well. Besides making a vehicle attractive, designers also influence the color scheme of an automobile.
The DiCD course provides fundamental knowledge to Transportation Design practice primarily concentrating on Cars. The course is targeted at those who are passionate and interested in Car Design but were not trained due to lack of opportunity and wish to gain a broad foundation in this area. We primarily cover hand skills such as sketching and rendering with various media such as pencils, pens, paint, markers and digital.
The faculty has diverse global experience designing and managing Transportation Design for some of the world’s best known brands working from design offices in India and Japan and is the GM and Head of Styling of one of the largest commercial vehicles manufacturer in the world.
Our aim is to provide enthusiasts with relevant high quality continuing education taught by some of the most experienced and recognized designers in the country, and directed towards learning the skills needed to prepare a portfolio of concepts
- to apply as prospective design students to a design school and/or
- to add as an additional skill-set when applying to an industry job.
