There are several colleges that offer UG and PG courses in automobile design and allied fields. My suggestion would be that you either apply to such a UG course or if you wish to do undergraduation in any other field, go through the admission procedure of some of the major Design colleges and see their eligibility criteria for PG in course of your choice.
The admission criteria in most colleges vary and have their specific requirements. However, if you wish to pursue a career in automobile design, it is advisable to join UG course in such a field only.
