Design – Studio Modelling
Studio Modelling sits under the Creative Design Pillar and consists of 2 main disciplines. Clay Modelling (physical) and Computer Aided Styling (CAS -Digital). Both work in harmony to deliver feasible model representation of the initial 2D Design vision. Both disciplines work closely with the creative designers to create physical scale and full-size models accompanied by a digital twin. Supporting the design process through to aesthetic confirmation gateway. For undergraduates in 2022 we have opportunities in our CAS team.
The Computer Aided Styling (CAS) team is an integral part of the design process. Creating high level detailed 3D digital datasets from 2D assets and engineering data which enables the design process to visualise future concepts and products. The digital data produced is used for high level reviews, engineering analysis, manufacture of physical assets and the basis for animations and high-end visuals. As we move into an increasingly more digital lead future and develop the design process, the CAS team will become even more critical and pivotal in the successful delivery of world class products.
This pathway within the CAS team will be centred around realising a unique design brief. It is designed to allow you to experience an automotive design programme and all of the aspects and disciplines needed to deliver a successful design conclusion. You will be encouraged to interact with many different disciplines throughout the process. You will be involved at every stage of the process. From creating the initial sketch work, mood boards and research into the brief. Creating refined 3D digital models. Applying model build techniques to your designs. Producing scale models and finishing to a high standard and presenting to the design seniors. This pathway has been designed to enable you to showcase your creative talents and design solutions and will help to excite and inspire the wider design team.
This is an outstanding opportunity to realise your potential within a prestigious automotive company. Where you will be at the forefront of the companies exciting and innovative future. Working within a highly creative and diverse team who all share your passion and will help guide and train you to be the best you can be.
Excellence runs throughout our entire business, and we would expect you to be the same. So, as well as being on track to achieve a degree in one of the following disciplines: Transport and automotive Design or 3D Digital design at 2:2 level or higher, you’ll need a clear understanding of practical automotive design, engineering and model development.
Please be aware that our undergraduate placement opportunities are only open to penultimate year students working towards a degree in Design (i.e. students who will be returning to their final year of study following their placement with us).
All applicants must upload a Design portfolio to their application to be considered. This must be no larger than 5MB. The guidance below indicates what needs to be shown in your portfolio:
CAS - Please provide as many varied examples of your digital modelling abilities. These should demonstrate model construction and patch layout as well as examples of your understanding of design, surface tension and highlights. Presentation techniques essential.
All our undergraduate programmes have a fixed start date commencing June 20th 2022 and will run for a duration of 12 months.
Rewards and Benefits
Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach in your work. And, with on-going support from industry leading experts and continual learning opportunities, you’ll quickly realise that our programmes have been designed to be as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.
Whichever part of the business you join your hard work and contribution deserves recognition. A generous holiday allowance will also be yours, as will many other benefits such as our privilege car purchase scheme, our pension scheme and access a range of deals and discounts from various retailers and sports clubs.
Join us and as a successful undergraduate in Design - Studio Modelling, you will work within experienced teams who will guide and support your growth into becoming an experienced member of the Design community.
Please be aware that we close our programmes at any point and at short notice based on the volume of applications. To give yourself the best chance of being considered for a place on this programme please apply early.
