Second year Transport Design student Robert Hunt has been interviewed by Commercial Motor magazine after the editor spotted Robert’s interest in trucks on Twitter.

Robert states that the editor “wanted to know more about the transport course at Coventry as it sounded interesting” and was also asked about his truck designs, as well as what he thought the truck industry would be like in 20 years in terms of innovative design features and safety challenges.

His article entitled ‘Designs on a Career’ is published in the March edition of Commercial Motor magazine, which is available to read in the Lanchester Library.
