ArtCenter is positioned at the heart of transportation design’s future.

With dozens of advanced automotive design studios and companies at our doorstep, we have the unique ability to tap professional designers and successful entrepreneurs to serve as instructors. In addition to traditional elements of styling, comfort, safety and usability, our curriculum emphasizes sustainable mobility and innovative design solutions to challenges facing transportation. Students gain fluency in drawing and both physical and digital modeling skills, as well as develop an understanding of vehicle architecture, materials and process, and aerodynamics.
