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.
