This course has been developed as preparation for a range of technical and management careers in motorsport engineering. This course aims to build upon the knowledge and skills developed from studying our Foundation Degree. This programme is accredited by the IET and by the IMechE for IEng status. You will be able to take advantage of brand new facilities, including a new race-team workshop, the Advanced Engineering Centre, as well as be a part of the race team.
The modules studied may include:
• Advanced Automotive Electronics
• Motorsport Engine Technology
• Project (double)
• Vehicle Dynamics
• Advanced CAD/CAM
• Management, Ethics and Energy and Sustainability (double)
Teaching and Assessment
You will undertake a range of classroom lectures, coupled with lab sessions. You will also be required to do a high amount of self-study in order to further research. Assessment will be via a variety of methods including assignments, reports, dissertation, portfolio, and presentations.
Upon completion you may progress to a range of Masters level courses that should result in a further year top-up, dependent upon study mode and compatibility of modules. You will also be well equipped to seek employment in the automotive and motorsport engineering industries.
Students will be able to apply for a range of graduate and junior roles within the motorsport and engineering industry.
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.
Typically entrants will possess:
• A minimum of a Pass grade in the Foundation Degree in Motorsport Engineering (to include Motorsport Fluid Dynamics & Maths II) coupled with relevant prior qualifications including GCSEs
Applicants with a Higher National Diploma or similar Foundation Degree are also encouraged to apply.
Entry may also be subject to interview.
