Course summary

The Motorsport Engineering programmes are intended to provide you with a thorough grounding in mechanical engineering science and technologies and their application to design and the solution of a range of engineering problems in the context of the motorsport engineering industry.

The programmes aim to develop your ability to work with others to apply this work to real-world problems, a skill vital for your future employability in this industry.

The following Bachelor’s degrees have been be accredited as meeting the academic requirement, in part, for Chartered Engineer (CEng in Part) registration for the cohort intakes from 2015 up to, and including, 2023:

  • BEng(Hons) Motorsport Engineering (Full-Time 3 Years; EngC ref 15968)
  • BEng(Hons) Motorsport Engineering with a year in industry (Full-Time 4 Years; EngC ref 15969).

Why choose this course

  1. Longest running Motorsport Engineering course in the country.
  2. Newest dedicated motorsport facility in the country.
  3. Student-led racing team, giving hands-on practical industrially guided experience.
  4. Passionate and compassionate staff.
  5. BEng programme accredited by IMechE.

Course Overview

Specialist areas of study including advanced engine design and vehicle dynamics will enable you to focus on areas of specialist interest that can be developed in the Group and Major Project modules.

Within many of the modules the course considers the environmental aspects of design and technology which are transferable to a broad range of employment opportunities. The course is also supported by extracurricular opportunities to apply the theoretical knowledge learnt in the modules to real life Motorsport applications.

Our BEng(Hons) Motorsport Engineering (Full-Time 3 Years; EngC ref 15968) and BEng(Hons) Motorsport Engineering with a year in industry (Full-Time 4 Years; EngC ref 15969) are accredited as meeting the academic requirement, in part, for Chartered Engineer (CEng in Part) registration by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from this course have found employment throughout motorsport from specialist component manufacturers though to Formula 1 and WRC teams. Graduates are now working in roles such as high performance engine development and calibration and aerodynamic design.

The skills developed on the course are transferable to other industries and many students have moved into the wider automotive industry as well working for OEMs such as Ford, Jaguar Land Rover and tier one suppliers such as Mahle. Each year a number of our graduates have chosen to continue their academic studies to Masters and PhD level.
