Looking to do something completely different?

Why not consider a course that involves the use of Australia’s only university-based clay modelling studio.

Established by Monash University’s Art and Design faculty, the Caulfield campus based studio is currently being used by industrial design students specialising in automotive design.

Third year and honours students are using the studio to create three-dimensional scale models of their automotive designs. The designs currently taking shape include cars, a school bus, an ambulance, a utility, an off-road vehicle and a three-wheeled motorcycle.

Nine of the students working in the studio were finalists in the 2005 Wheels Automotive Design Award for Young Designer of the Year, which was won by industrial design honours student Adam Ty Dean Smith.

Industrial design course coordinator Selby Coxon said the studio could be expanded to include modelling of other consumer products such as whitegoods.

"There is a world-wide shortage of clay modellers, and the Monash studio is a way of developing this expertise in our students and adding to their skill set," Mr Coxon said.

Automotive industry interest in the new facility is so great that executives from General Motors' headquarters in Detroit, Michigan, visited the studio in late 2005 as part of a worldwide audit of 20 universities from which the organisation recruits graduates.
Head of General Motors’ clay modelling studio Mike Chester is conducting twice-weekly studio sessions at Monash as part of General Motors' commitment to the advancement of engineering education through industry-institution collaboration.

Contact a counsellor to learn more about industrial design courses at Monash or about those at other universities.
