We designed Automotive and Transport Design (Hons) at Coventry University  to give you an opportunity to develop the skills and expertise to produce innovative and visionary designs for all forms of transport. This includes cars, motorbikes, boats, luxury yachts, construction vehicles and vehicle interiors, as well as emerging areas such as electric vehicles and personal mobility devices.

We have current excellent industry links, with diverse employers such as Jaguar Land Rover, Herman Miller, Lotus, Dyson, Aston Martin, Speedo, Ford and Electrolux. These may give you opportunities for ‘live’ collaborative projects, work placements, industry visits, design competitions and expert advice through regular guest lectures. You can start building your contacts and gain the networking experience to establish yourself as a design professional long before you graduate.


Professional enhancement is central to our ethos and you will be encouraged to embrace either an industry placement or international study exchange before your final year. Upon successful completion of this course, you should be used to working proactively to generate ideas as an individual or in teams and meeting deadlines.

We will encourage and guide you to enter national and international design competitions which can enhance your portfolio, expose you to potential employers and increase networking prospects.

Career opportunities are vast and varied - you could start your own business, become a design consultant, modeller, illustrator, CAD professional, design manager or marketing professionals. Graduates have found opportunities in automotive exterior and interior design, lighting systems design, clay and 'hard' modelling, digital modelling and surfacing, 3D visualisation and animation, colour and materials design, user interface design, lifestyle products and design research.
