A Career in Automotive Design

A Career in Automotive Design | Automotive engineer | Scoop.it
Probably every neighborhood from New York to California and Maine to Florida has a kid who likes to draw cars. And maybe those kids will proudly announce that when they grow up they are going to be car designers. For many, that dream will fall by the wayside but for a select few it will become reality.

8. A design begins with a set of digital or manual sketches. Once these are approved by management, more detailed drawings follow. Then clay models or digital models are developed. The same procedure is followed for exterior, interior, and color and trim design.<br><br>However the road from car sketches to the design studio is paved with hard work beginning in high school. Auto design is one of the most competitive careers in the design industry.

9. throughout high school they need to work on building a drawing portfolio. All colleges require a portfolio. And it goes without saying that the better the portfolio, the better the graduate's chances of being accepted by a prestigious institution.<br><br>While many schools offer majors in industrial design only a few specialize in transportation design, which is the recommended career path for future vehicle designers.

10.Some schools provide an internship in a design studio during the third or fourth year. These are valuable since internships are often a direct path to an entry-level job upon graduation.However, the job market is much better for engineers than designers. For every vacant design position, there are twenty engineering jobs. In spite of this, the student with outstanding talent and creativity will always be recognized and find a niche in the industry.

6. Coursework includes design principles, sketching, 3D modeling, design presentation and computer-assisted design. Art and industrial design history and engineering technology courses can provide a beneficial foundation. Employers expect to see a portfolio of a designer's work, which can be developed over the course of a degree program.

7. Automotive design engineers combine creative aesthetics with a practical understanding of engineering. Designers often interact with mechanical and industrial engineers to create designs feasible for production, and have knowledge of raw materials, engineering techniques and production processes. Automotive design engineers draw by hand and utilize computer design software. <br><br>

2. automotive engineering includes designing and modelling different car parts using computer aided design (CAD) techniques, making vital decisions about what materials should be used to enhance durability, speed and safety, and putting together prototypes for the testing phase

Graduate trainee salaries start at around 25,000, increasing to around 35,000. Automotive engineers with five to ten years of experience can earn between 35,000 and 50,000<br>
