Course content

This master's programme challenges the existing conventions of Transportation Design by educating the next generation of designers, who will embrace, reflect and address environmental, economic and sociocultural challenges through creative dialogue.

We place design philosophy, innovation and design practice in an industrial context to develop sustainable solutions. There is a strong emphasis on unique, niche, and alternative forms of vehicle and/or transportation systems, which explore our evolving relationship with sustainable mobility in a shrinking world.

The programme will culminate in a dissertation or a major project which is expected to demonstrate innovation in some, or all, aspects of its design, function or means of manufacture.
