Our proximity to more than two-dozen automotive design studios in Southern California, enables us to recruit top design talent to offer classroom critiques and broader career advice.

Our core faculty posseses a wide knowledge base, with expertise in transportation and urban planning, industrial design, interaction design and, of course, transportation design. The Transportation Systems and Design program also benefits from ArtCenter’s position as the standard-bearer for transportation design education, which provides access to global leaders in all forms of mobility, including Tesla, Boeing, NASA-JPL, Fisker, GM Advanced Design and Porsche among many others. Faculty connections to industry also facilitate high-level student internships within civic, academic and think tanks that complement this program’s thrust toward creating systems-level transportation innovators.
