The role of the Automotive Modeler includes Technically Surfacing Polygonal Meshes
using Bezier Surfaces to a tolerance of < 1.00 mm, as this is something you will be questioned about at interview, it has become a vital skill-set to have for candidates wishing to get into the Automotive Industry.
Practical Surfacing Tests at Interview
It is now common place for students attending Alias Entry Level Interviews to be given a Mesh and asked to surface it within say 1 working day. this is not a simple task, as it tests so many aspects of your Alias modeling ability. To be able to surface even a simplified exterior mesh in 5-8 hours, is only possible if you have completed an extensive course on this area of modeling and also put in IMHO. around 100 hours of practice with a good teacher (200 hours would be better)
Such is the demand by employers for candidates to be proficient at Revese Engineering, that all my students now do a course on this prior to attending any interviews.
I am currently teaching Mesh to Nurbs skills to very qualified graduates in Engineering and Transport Design literally world wide. However not all my students are graduates. I have some very talented modelers, who have not attended university
Here is a sample video to give you a flavor of the course
