Automobile Designing Course in Bangalore

Become an Automobile Designer: Design Mobility Solutions of the Future

The Transportation/Automobile Designing course at Strate is not merely a car design course; it is a new way to redesign and reimagine mobility solutions of the future. Aesthetics is now the ruling theme of the automobile industry as more and more automobile users are using design parameters for purchase. Our transportation design courses are aimed at encouraging the creative potentials of the students in both conceptual and stylistic dimensions. We don’t just produce automobile designers who transform a sketch through computer rendered graphics into the design; we produce artists who can envision the design of automobiles based on the aesthetic acceptance of users, comfort of users and can transform that concept into a masterpiece with state of art technologies, computer-aided design, simulation software and more. That’s the reason we are the top transportation design college in India and the best automobile design course in Bangalore. We expect nothing short of ‘Chris Bangle-BMW’s Revolutionary Designer’ from our students.

Strate’s transportation designing course is the ideal platform for budding designers to stoke their passion, hone their creativity and become world-class transportation designers and get placed in some of the top companies in the world.

What is Transportation / Automobile Design?

Automobile design is the conception of newer and improved automobiles. It is often summarised as car design, but the term extends to a multitude of other vehicles. Car design only deals with cars and their ilk. Automobile design, on the other hand, comprises the design of vehicles such as cars, motorbikes, buses, vans, bicycles, trucks, trains, airplanes, etc.

Automobile designers team up with development teams to bring their designs to life. Many design teams consist of separate interior and exterior designers whereas some involve designers who can do both.

Automobile design brings together both design and engineering techniques and culminates into a practical prototype. While automobile design mostly deals with aesthetics, many designers usually include the vehicle’s functionality in their work. They make designs that are sustainable, safe, and reliable. Doing so also helps in creating a working model of the design rather than a beautiful work of art.

    The industrial, economic, and societal (r)evolutions, often related to sustainable issues, that lie ahead at this beginning of the century encourage us to devise transportation solutions that are both sustainable and responsible. Questioning our experience of contemporary transport is about understanding the evolution of lifestyles in order to devise relevant contexts of future transportation (multimodality, continuity of services, connectivity, etc.) and formalise objects, systems, and services of 21st-century transportation.

    According to industry body CII, the potential size of the design industry was INR 18,832 crore in 2020 and have increased many folds by 2022. Of this, presently only a market worth of INR 2,100 crore is being realised, meaning more than 80% of the design potential is yet to be realised in India.

    India has one of the fastest-growing automobile design industries in the world. Currently, it ranks 4th and is on its way to becoming a leading manufacturer of cars. Foreign investments and government initiatives in the sector have further fuelled its growth. India’s electric vehicle market alone is estimated to be US 7.09 billion USD opportunity by 2025.

    In view of these developments, the automobile industry is expected to see an 12-14% increase in hiring in 2022.

    Not only the usage, but demands for aesthetic aspects of automobiles have increased massively. There has been a design revolution going on. Some of the noteworthy automobile designing innovations we observed in 2022 include BMW Ix Colour Changing Cars, Cadillac Innerspace Concept, Mercedes Vision EXXX Concept having a minimalist interior design and so on. There are many more. The car designing fever has already gripped India with automobile giants eyeing huge investments in the Indian market. Identifying the need for quality automobile designers in India, Strate has introduced the Integrated Master in Design course with a specialization in transportation design. The automobile design course equips students with all skills and knowledge to help them be future torchbearers of design innovation in the automobile industry.
