Art Center College of Design's Transportation Design program is one of the more elite courses of its kind. So many design directors have graduated from Pasadena's premier design school and it continues to be taught by instructors that are also full-time designers at big automotive OEMs by day. With the wealth of automotive design studios in and around Los Angeles there are a lot of opportunities for graduates as well.
