Coventry University MDes and BA Transport Design Degree Show

The Coventry show, held this year, as last, at the Coventry City football ground, did not disappoint. With a wide range of topics, approaches and styles, there was much to look at. The preview evening attracted some of the World's leading designers, some of whom approached students with job offers on the night.

In this report, you will find illustrations that featured in students' final projects, a little about the course and a closer look at the work of one or two of the students...

Coventry School of Art & Design: Transport Design

The transport design course has existed for over 25 years and in that time has supplied the automotive industry worldwide with some incredibly successful designers. Destinations for students graduating in 2000 include Mazda, Ghia, Johnson Controls, Jaguar, MG Rover, Renault, Mitsubishi and Landrover. A number of students also went on to further study on post-graduate courses, including the RCA's Vehicle Design course.

The course produces students with either BA or MDes qualifications. The first two years of the course are fully integrated - choices are made in the third year as to which route to take. The four-year MDes includes a 20 week industry placement carried out late in the third year. Assessment throughout the course is mainly in the form of presentations of coursework, although other modules are assessed via exams. Key modules focus on vehicles as a whole but are used to tie in other modules - such as engineering, maths, aerodynamics and ergonomics.

The course takes into account many different aspects of transport design and whilst generally associated with car design, the course produces a large number of students who choose to work in other aspects of design. Graduates often become successful in fields such as boat design, product design and design realisation (computer graphics, clay modelling etc.).
