“Auto Design & Sketching” highlights a path to a career in automotive design for anyone with a burning passion for cars and design, while mapping out a possible career in the future of transportation. The self-paced online course features three modules: Design Principles & History, Famous Case Studies and Let’s Draw, which focuses on sketching exercises.
The course is guided by an illustrious group of automotive designers, including Franz von Holzhausen (Chief Designer, Tesla Motors), Ralph Gilles (Chief Design Officer, Stellantis), Christine Feuell (Brand CEO, Chrysler), Francesc Arenas (Design Director, Hispano Suiza) and Roman Yneges (Faculty, Art Center College of Design), among others.
