If you are interested in learning how to design automobiles or other modes of transportation, Lawrence Technological University is the place to pursue your goal.The Bachelor of Science in Transportation Design program offers motivated, talented, and skilled students the opportunity to excel in one of today’s most challenging and competitive fields.
Located in the heart of the American automobile industry, Lawrence Tech was founded in 1932 on the site where Henry Ford made automotive history by perfecting the moving assembly line. Looking to the future, and with industry support, Lawrence Tech has created a unique transportation design program that allows you to blend your creative design talent with a comprehensive understanding of automotive technology. This union of design and technology offers you the kind of experience that automotive design graduates from other programs can take years to acquire on the job. It can give you the edge in competing for top-level design positions.
Built around the University’s signature “theory and practice” approach to learning, the Bachelor of Science in Transportation Design combines in-depth conceptual investigation with extensive exposure to practicing designers and engineers. You will participate in real-world automotive-based projects and will regularly present your designs to industry professionals. You will acquire more practical experience through an internship and practicum before graduation.
Being situated in an area so immersed in all things automotive, LTU's Transportation Design program offers students the chance to participate in company-sponsored projects throughout their academic career. All students are given a personal work space in dedicated design studios, and top student designs are displayed at the North American International Auto Show. Students from the program have won multiple awards, including: 1st place, Ford Symposium Design Competition, 2010; 1st place, Formula Zero design competition, 2008; as well as 2nd and 3rd place, SABIC Innovative Plastics Car Design Contest, 2008.
Admission into the Transportation Design program follows the University’s admission criteria. Portfolios are not required for admission.
