DEARBORN, MICH. -Working on self-driving vehicles is exciting for many reasons. Rarely do you get an opportunity to help change the way we move. While the Ford team is excited about the chance we have to shape the future of mobility, we also feel a responsibility to help foster this excitement with the next generation of engineers.
Working with students doesn't just help prepare them for a successful career in the automotive industry - it also keeps Ford at the forefront of cutting-edge research and creative thinking. We regularly collaborate with universities across the country to foster the growth of students and advance research in a variety of areas, from self-driving algorithm development to the study of new manufacturing materials.
For the past few years, Ford has been working with students in Clemson University'sDeep Orange automotive program. Now in its 12th year, Deep Orange is a two-year Masters program that teaches by doing - it assembles students into teams and challenges them to design and build a fully functioning concept car. Working collaboratively with each other, faculty and industry veterans like those of us at Ford, students get a first-hand look at how a car goes from concept to reality.
