The National Transport Design Centre (NTDC) is a state-of-the-art facility, operating within the University's Centre for Mobility and Transport.
Opened May 2017, the NTDC is designed to explore new areas of transport design research and find new ways to use existing equipment, as well as creating new technologies. It's both provocative and surprising, ambitious and disruptive, creating real transferable outcomes and impact.
To maximise its effectiveness, the NTDC functions in a truly cross-disciplinary way, bringing designers, technologists, coders, together with artists, gamers, material specialists and fashion experts. It will use leading edge technology to create and refine new solutions.
Coventry University is able to provide access to experts from across these disciplines feeding into the NTDC, as well as benefiting from the research and outcomes of the Centre.
The NTDC also supports and cultivates future generations of Transport Designers through Coventry University’s regular interaction across the schools network, and our relationship with, for example, the Coventry Transport Museum.
