About the course
Motorsport is a dynamic, competitive global industry and companies need to use state-of-the-art materials, designs and processes to stay at the top. Some of the finest engineering solutions, both in design and manufacturing, and team management techniques, have emerged from this competitive pressure.
The BEng (Hons) (three years academic study) programme aims to produce graduates equipped to play leading professional roles in the motorsport, automotive and related industries.
The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
The motorsport industry is constantly evolving as companies seek to gain an edge on their rivals, and the lifespan of products is very short. All aspects of the industry have to reflect this as the key to success is that vehicles have to be ready for the race, no matter what.
The industry puts a high value on graduates that bring technical knowledge, motivation and commercial awareness – and this specialist degree provides you with the technical knowledge and transferable skills to help you succeed in this fast moving, exciting industry.
The subjects studied are those that you would encounter on a mechanical engineering course, but with a strong flavour of motorsport in their application.
