General Motors (GM) has announced a contest for design students to envision the styling of a GM motor vehicle. Participants will be able to access the competition online, where the students will be able to take part in designing the interior and the exterior of the cars.

These students will be given design briefs on some of GM's most popular vehicles, including Buick, Cadillac and Chevrolet. They have to create a 3D model for the interior and the exterior, and they also have to send all of their sketches during their design process, the news source reports.

Undergraduates and doctoral students were encouraged to take a shot at designing a GM car.

"The entire design community can help push and guide the creativity of the students," David Lyon, who is the GM executive director of interior design.

These students can expect the employment rate for industrial design to increase by 9 percent between 2008 and 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
