Building on the success of the world-renowned Vehicle Design Programme at the RCA, Intelligent Mobility looks to the future of all forms of transportation design and places this in the context of an increasingly complex environment.

About

Our approach is to establish a critical learning environment in which projects and research focus on innovation and disruptive design outcomes. The MA Programme encourages a design-led, highly personal and ideological approach where key themes such as vehicle aesthetics, sustainability, emerging markets and human cultural factors can be met with impactful and relevant design proposals.

Starting from the traditional role of automotive and transportation (vehicle design), the ambition of the MA Programme is to create future design leaders who have the mindset and skill set required to influence this rapidly changing industry.

The Programme offers:

  • globally recognised industry-leading MA with extensive industrial relationships through sponsored projects, internships and bursaries/awards. Recent collaborations include: Audi, Bentley, Citroen, Hitachi Rail Europe, Jaguar, Kia, EXA, Sabic and TATA
  • numerous scholarships 
  • a strong teaching staff comprised of with diverse, high-level practitioner experience in global mobility and design brands 
  • close ties to the Intelligent Mobility Design Centre, a new multidisciplinary mobility research centre 
  • a world-leading multi-disciplinary design learning environment, working alongside RCA Programmes such as Fashion and Innovation Design Engineering
  • an alumni network located in numerous top design positions globally.

Programme Structure

The RCA provides a unique environment for postgraduate art and design students to reflect upon their own practice, and to engage with students from their own and other disciplines. The role of Critical & Historical Studies (CHS) is to support the studio programmes in enabling these critical engagements to take place. The courses offered by CHS to first-year, studio-based MA students propose an intellectual framework within which they can begin to establish a coherent relationship between theory and practice.

In the autumn and spring terms there are a series of College-wide seminars and lectures. The autumn term series will relate to your particular discipline, whereas the spring term series will be more broad-based and cross-disciplinary in nature.
