Welche Ziele verfolgt der Kurs?

This summer course is intented to stimulate creative thinking while allowing students to develop technical skills.
Following an introduction to the automobile industry from an historical point of view, students acquire the technical skills to correctly visualize a concept and to explore an object from different points of observation. They will understand and master the techniques of volume and perspective in design which will allow them to develop ‘creative concepts’ and translate their own ideas in car design projects. After a general overview of the automotive engineering, students will move forward into modelling lab and will produce their car design model. Projects will be subject to groups and teachers’ critiques.

Ist dieser Kurs für mich?

This is an introductory level program, designed for creative, flexible, open-minded students or professionals from other fields who want to learn and take on challenges. People who are interested in the world of automotive design and have no prior knowledge or experience in the discipline.

Voraussetzungen: Skills such as drawing or sketching can be useful even if not mandatory. Applicants need to show strong motivation and the ability to work in groups.

Introduction to the Profession and IndustryThis program gives an overview both to industry and profession, especially from the historical Italian perspective.
SketchingThe main focus of the program is to develop and refine student’s capacity for freehand sketching and drawing.The car designer is between the sculptor and the engineer, and creates moving objects of desire. In terms of sketching and rendering, car design has the final word in industrial design process, and is placed at the top of the design pyramid. By starting from basic elements (parallelepiped, cylinder, etc.), the course provides the students with a prospective drawing model for the car sketch. This requires a great deal of time and dedication both in and outside of the classroom.
Automotive EngineeringFocuses on the understanding of the “architecture” of the vehicle. This includes automotive ergonomics, aerodynamics, technical overview as well as understanding the basic motor types.
ModellingIntroduces the theoretical and technical elements necessary to produce car design models at different stages of project development. The real 3D view allows the student to examine the shapes and volumes and to check its coherence with reference to the physical laws and the processing techniques. Modelling is a key phase of the design process as allows students to verify ideas and refine them, checking volumes, proportions and connections between the various parts of a vehicle.Students will create basic clay models as the final part of this module of the program.
