Post Graduate Diploma in Automotive Sculpting - Digital & Clay


MIT Institute of Design has been at the forefront of design education in India since 2006 and we are determined to play a leading role in the years ahead. Set up as part of the MAEER’s group under guidance of design thought leaders like Prof. Kumar Vyas and Prof. Dhimant Panchal, the foundation of the institute has been well established with its strong leadership, learning pedagogy, experienced design faculties and practitioners.
MITID has successfully transitioned into being a constituent of MIT ART, DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY UNIVERSITY established by government of Maharashtra through ACT XXXIV 2015. With a decade plus of excellence and pursuance of one of our future aspirations, MIT Institute of Design with 1300+ creative minds on campus and 1000+ alumni professionals have added a further dimension to the programmes of design learning at our campus.

About SIAM

Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) is the apex Industry body representing leading vehicle & vehicular engine manufacturers in India. Through its Styling & Design Group, SIAM is committed to strengthening the Indian automotive-design ecosystem. A part of this effort is undertaken through the proper training and mentoring of students as well as practicing designers, digital & physical modellers.
Automotive Clay Modelling was identified collectively by Indian OEMs as an area with a gap between the supply & demand of skilled personnel. The importance of clay models in helping to visualize & sell concepts cannot be overstated and though the related skill sets are much in demand, their availability well below was is need by the industry be it transportation or product.
With the aim to address this gap, SIAM will be supporting MITID, Pune for starting an Automotive Clay Modelling programme. This programme will be intensive skill based programs which will have inputs in design fundamentals, form studies, technical design, digital modelling, materials and model making.

About Transportation Design

The rapidly changing growth of India's economic growth demands an increase of a corresponding growth in the domain of infrastructure. This is especially so in the different sectors of transportation – of goods and people.
This specialist industrial design course offered by MIT's Institute of Design is concerned with addressing holistically the needs of transportation devices and systems in a broader context. It acknowledges the need to reconsider transport products in the framework of the present day scenario vis a vis the economic and social needs, the need to analyse the success or failure of existing systems and devices, and to propose future transport solutions.

About Automotive Clay Sculpting

Automotive clay sculpting help translate a designer’s vision into a tangible reality.
Clay modelling is still commonly used by OEMS in automotive and product

design industry, This is a way to for pre visualize concepts which help in decision making before taking the products further for manufacturing.

MITID has developed these programmes in close collaboration with SIAM.

About Automotive Digital Sculpting

Automotive Digital Sculptor prepares mathematical data or 3D model using concept anticipated by a designer. This data is needed for various downstream activities of a vehicle design & development programme. This requires ability to understand the creative design process, work with fine details, trade-off between design & engineering and work at a high level of skills in Alias® & allied software’s. The digital sculpting is an essential part of the creative design process and the common chord between Designers and Engineers.
