Course summary

The Transport Design course at Swansea explores the changing nature of transportation in all its forms, including: cars, boats, trucks, motorcycles, public transport & transport systems. The bias of this course is in the design resolution of new vehicle types to meet a need and/or a future scenario. The course includes live design projects that enable students to engage with both major companies and small entrepreneurial businesses. This industrial contact allows students to develop their skills in response to real-world scenarios and prepares them for the demands of employment. External client projects are undertaken each year, with recent client companies including world-renowned brands such as Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Lotus and a Sci-Fi film production company. The teaching team consists of highly experienced designers who are either engaged in industrial practice or are research active, supported by industrially trained technical staff. This ensures that the course delivers a qualification and experience that is highly relevant to the changing needs of the industry. The School is situated in the refurbished ALEX building in the Swansea Arts Quarter where students have access to excellent facilities including dedicated design studios with individual workstations. Traditional modelling workshops are supported by a comprehensive range of advanced CAD/CAM and Rapid Prototyping machines. Students can gain experience of working with wood, metal, plastics, glass, ceramics and automotive styling clay. Our studios and CAD facilities are equipped with Wacom Cintiq displays for freehand digital sketching and the latest versions of industry-standard design and visualisation software, such as Autodesk Alias, Sketchbook Pro, SolidWorks and Adobe Creative Suite. The MDes gives students the opportunity to progress from undergraduate to master's level within an integrated programme structure. It gives the student, an opportunity to push the envelope of transport design and innovation in the fourth year of the programme through the medium of an industrial engaged project.
