Somerset-Berkley, MA, Student’s Automotive Design Land Him a Scholarship College for Creative Studies

A Somerset-Berkley, MA, Regional High School senior is the recipient of the Dunning Fellows and Scholars Excellence in Automotive Design at the transportation design program at the College for Creative Studies (CCS).

 

Joshua Rego won a full scholarship to attend CCS’s Pre-College Summer Experience Dunning Automotive Design program in Detroit, valued near $4,300. Through completing the program, Rego earned three college credits and now has the opportunity to compete for one full-ride scholarship to CCS’s undergraduate Transportation Design program.

 

Winners lived on campus for three weeks, took faculty-led automotive design classes taught by industry professionals and had the opportunity to explore Detroit’s burgeoning art scene.

 

In order for consideration, Rego had to submit a hand-drawn vehicle design showing three views – front, side and three-quarters view. Applicants were tasked with designing a vehicle they imagine themselves in the year 2045.

 

Judges for the competition included Ralph Gilles, head of design at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (CCS alumnus); Moray Callum, vice president of design at Ford Motor Company; Michael Simcoe, vice president of global design at General Motors (CCS alumnus); Ed Welburn, CEO of the Welburn Group and adjunct faculty at CCS as well as Paul Snyder, Paul & Helen Farago chair of transportation design at CCS.
