Prof. Nishant Sharma

A 4 week module, guided by Professor Nishant Sharma. The main task here was filled with surveys on people and entry-level A segment vehicles. Students were divided into groups of two and were tasked to carry out the surveys, followed by presentation on their study and understanding and finally panel presentation where a detailed interior concept generation and final concept was generated by each students individually.



Mobility Design II | MD 614
Prof. Peer M Sathikh, Prof. Nishant Sharma

This program started with a one-week workshop in which students were tasked with designing an Electric-Powered Taxi System for suburban Mumbai. The workshop was guided by Prof. Peer Sathikh, visiting faculty from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.



CAID Modelling for Automotive Design | MD 615
Prof. Nishant Sharma

A 3 week module, guided by Professor Nishant Sharma along with Industry specialist Vivek from Mahindra Ltd. Students were given brief classes on how to make optimum use of the tools and techniques of Autodesk Alias software to understand CAID automotive design. Classes were followed by Alias wire form of the Segway designs of individual students.

This exercise made use of the concept of developing a form based on a metaphor. The objective was to develop a new form for a micro-personal mobility vehicle based on the Segway.



History of Transportation and Automobile Design | MD 616
Prof. K Ramachandran
