Our Activities & Programs: Ongoing Events: College for Creative Studies Model T Design Contest

Ford Model T concept by Trang Dong

The Junior design class at the College for Creative Studies was given 15 weeks and one task. The students were judged by world re-known Ford engineers and designers and the winning design was featured in an exhibit at The Henry Ford and Ford Motor Company during the Model T Centennial.

This program inspired the worldwide design competition featuring 6 schools from across the globe. What was the concept and guidelines for this projectω "You are Henry Ford 100 years later, design the Model T of the future". The CCS Students delivered that plus more! Special thanks to Ford Motor Co. for their work on this project.
