This course aims to develop the knowledge and skills that you will need to
become a highly qualified engineer. Our excellent facilities include a rolling
road, CAD suite, wind tunnel, damper dynamometer, advanced chassis
set-up equipment, CNC and machine shop and cylinder head flow analysis
equipment amongst a whole host of software packages.
This programme is accredited by the IET and IMechE as partially meeting
the academic requirements for IEng status. To get full IEng recognition
you will need to study an accredited BEng (Hons) Top-up (such as the
Motorsport Technology BEng (Hons) Top-up Degree offered at University
Centre Somerset). During each year we carry out a large range of industry
partner visits to the likes of Xtrac, Williams, Force India and other related
motorsport engineering companies. We also have a series of guest
lectures throughout each year. You will also be given the opportunity to
participate in the College race team.
You will be able to take advantage of brand new facilities, including a new
race-team workshop and the Advanced Engineering Centre.
Teaching and Assessment
You will undertake classroom lectures, coupled with practical
sessions in manufacturing, composites, aerodynamics,
chassis and engine technology. You will also be required to
do a significant amount of self-study and research.
Assessment will include assignments, reports, portfolio, project,
presentations, drawing work and practical skills assessments.
On successful completion of this course you have the opportunity to
progress to the BEng (Hons) Top-up Degree in Motorsport Technology
at University Centre Somerset or at a university of your choice.
Alternatively graduates can apply for a variety of roles in motorsport and
other engineering disciplines. Recent graduates work with companies
including McLaren GT, Bentley Motors, Jaguar Land Rover, MOD,
Hyundai Motorsport (WRC), McLaren F1 and Neil Brown Engines.
