The Master of Science Transportation Systems and Design program at Art Center College of Design has been designed to attract students passionate about the automotive industry and the expansive field of transportation and personal mobility. The innovative curriculum encourages creativity and strategic thinking to create compelling transportation solutions for the automotive industry at a systems level, rather than a product level.
Because design brings value well beyond the areas of product and service development, our curriculum encompasses a combination of design methodology, strategic innovation, systems thinking, customer-driven research and entrepreneurial practices. The program’s community of students—often with prior degrees in design, architecture, urban planning, business, engineering, anthropology and economics—brings diverse perspectives and stimulates the transdisciplinary culture essential to advance the future of transportation design.
This course of study encourages graduates to become agents of change within design studios and manufacturers, as well as organizations responsible for transportation systems solutions at the national, state and local levels.
