So, just watch the video and think about some of criterias to check before you take your decision.

I know that some of you will not agree with my position about Engineering students getting a Master in Transportation Design and feeling ready for a car design job. As you know I do not believe it is the right school career plan to become car designers.
Of course, we have several exceptions, great designers that come from Engineering and Architecture universities and some of them are today in important design studios. Flavio Manzoni VP Design at Ferrari Design is a very well known example, brilliant designer coming from an Italian Architecture university
However, those cases are really few. They are exceptions, to become designers or car designers you need a Design school Bachelor.
