College Exhibition: Coventry University students prepare for the Transport Design Degree Show

Fri, 28 May 2004 Final-year students on Britain's largest and oldest transport design course are preparing to exhibit their work at this year's Coventry University Degree Show. The work of hundreds of the most talented young artists, engineers, product and transport designers will be unveiled at the private view on 11 June 2004. The show is open to the public from 12-17 June 2004 and admission is free. The entire Show is held on-site at the University, offering visitors the chance to not only see the creative talents of the students, but also the facilities available on campus, including the new state-of-the-art design facility, the Bugatti Building.

The show marks the culmination of 3 or 4 years of study, depending on whether the BAHons or MDes study routes have been followed. The BAHons students exhibit both their self select and group projects, whilst those finishing the MDes display answers to their individually chosen research questions.

This year, the theme of the event is 'Take the Bait'. The Degree Show is seen as an opportunity for students to exhibit their work but also to be able to exhibit themselves to prospective employers. The projects on show, and the students themselves are diverse in nature and approach, resulting in surprising and thought provoking results. Designs this year include a six-legged all-terrain rescue vehicle, 'what women want' from a car interior, a three-wheeler city car, a new take on motorbike design inspired by pasta, a car that you can feel, smell, hear and practically taste, and a luxury floating hotel.

Coventry University has been running its Transport Design course for over thirty years and has an impressive employment record. Almost every automotive design studio employs a Coventry University graduate. The course continues to be supported by several major automotive manufacturers and this allows the students a greater understanding of the professional design process.

The private view takes place on 11 June 2004, by invitation only. For more information about the Show call 024 7688 8774.
