Do you drool looking at the beauties
on the road? Do you crave to have one of your own, or even better do you dream of designing your own car?  Then Lanchpad Academy is your answer. Started by a bunch of Bangaloreans, it is a place where you can learn all the awesome stuff. Car Design is an evolving area in the field of design. It combines both the artistic and engineering fields which makes it a very difficult field to master.

 “Engineering students cannot directly get into car designing. We give them an opportunity to learn and explore their talents before going for higher education. We break the path of traditional education by giving students an insight into automotive designing in a professional manner,” says Roshan founder of Launchpad. At Launchpad they recognize the need for specialized high quality education programs for all that is affordable and helps in exploration of alternative career options.

“The objective of the CarDesign Program is to impart a basic introduction to the car design process through demonstrations, hands on exercises and interactive group sessions under the mentor ship of expert faculty, like the former lead designer from General Motors. It is a great course which teaches the nitty-gritty of car designing. We firstly help people improve on their drawing skills and secondly they also get to learn the two important types of car designing.” explains Balaji, the co-founder.

“The first one is the form design where one examines the look of the car and how they want to further enhance it. The second is the functional design, where we teach the students about how a car works in terms of technology. The form covers the aesthetic part of designing while the functional training will give the student a  real exposure to the technicalities of the automobile,” says Balaji who thinks that it is very essential to learn a little bit of designing before taking it up as a career.
