Default Dilip Chhabria's College of Automotive Studies

The DYP-DC College is now open. Check out more info here (DYP-DC CENTER for Automotive Research and Studies(DC College) Now OPEN !!)


I am yet to figure if this is good news or bad news... but its news never the less... DC is starting of a college in Pune which would offer UG & PG courses in automotive styling, transportation design & engineering.

Imagine 1,500 students coming out and doing what DC does ... the 'bad car thread' would need a seperate server to back up!!

Read more here.

dont think all creative minds make bad cars. unless he makes them draw in front of them and if its bad enough then he gives them admissions. then its diffrent story.

Though I hate his designs, this is a fabulous step forward for our design community. How many places are actually there in India to learn automotive design?

If his past success is anything to go by, DC will ensure the right quality and infrastructure; vital tools for an education. I just hope the education is limited to nurturing skill-sets, expanding creativity and offering career direction.

I think most of them will join for the love or passion for it and not actually make profession out of it.

I thought Industrial (product) design courses (offered by NIFT,MDes in IIT Bombay) covers automobile designs also. Correct me if I am wrong.

Great step forward for Indian education system.

DC will teach them the skills, they will use their own imagination.

Well maybe some students won't fulfill his expectations and may design better cars than him

apart from the ususal DC bashing, i don't see why this step should not be welcome whole heartedly.

Thats great news, and coming from DC who has international exposure its a good move to have such an institute which will primarily focus on automobile design. Lets just hope they all dont turn out to be DC clones. But i am sure that wont happen these arty sort of people have a mind of their own and dont usually beleive in copying somebody else's style of designing.

The venture sure is a welcome move. And I do hope more students graduate in automotive engineering/design in the coming years. Just that, DC invokes the wrong emotions, aleast to me.

NID. Excellent place. Their students are a class apart, atleast the few I know.

linky to NID's PGDPD degree in Transportation and Automobile Design.

NID :: Transportation & Automobile Design (PGDPD)

by the way, on the top left of the above page, check out the concept design sketch for a vehicle titled "Scorpio". Man, if M&M made the current Scorpio after rejecting that, they ought to be shot.

It is good to hear that a dedicated automotive design shool is coming up in India. It will make the choice for college much easier for a lot of budding designers. They could club mech/automotive engg. with it, so that both the designers and engineers are studying side by side.

You donít need that, just look at the 'face lifted' Boleros & Scopios out there, not to mention the Wagon R and Indigo came out worse IMHO after they went under the scalpel. Why cant manufacturers stick to the original design, as it is generally the most cohesive, and make some real changes under the skin for mid life updates, rather than those superficial headlamp jobs.
