    Since several auto manufacturers have design facilities in Michigan, the University of Michigan has students of that field. I have attached a link to an article on their website about graduates of their art and design program.

    Design of an automobile involves vast amounts of data: the price the manufacturer wants to sell the car, the weight of the car as it affects gas mileage, coefficient of drag, etc. I recommend you get well acquainted with the University of Michigan site and send them any questions you may have. I know of GM, Chrysler, Ford, and Nissan design divisions in Michigan, and there may be others such as Hyundai there.
