Course summary

The highly bespoke motorsport engineering course is for those applicants who wish to focus on all aspects of modern race vehicles, from high performance engines, use of hybrid power and power delivery, to the high performance end of spectrum of aerodynamics and vehicle stability mechanisms and methodologies. The modules range from track-side and creative to relevant technical modules which give the basis for technical study, such as mathematics, science, thermodynamics and liquid mechanics. Contextualisation of all course content ensures the maximum industrial relevance along with pace being kept to extremely fast moving and often restricted industrial technologies.Virtual technologies feature heavily in the course, as a valuable industrial tool to reduce lead times in the conceptualisation of prototype vehicles, it is an essential aspect of the modern engineer, the basics of solid modelling (3D CAD) are taught initially and used to develop designs, leading into the use of FEA (finite element analysis) and CFD (computational fluid dynamics) to assess various designs and prototypes.A variety of race cars (including a Formula Renault, Formula 3 and a Morgan Challenge race car) are utilised to demonstrate technical concepts and are raced internationally by a professional driver; students can apply to be considered for the race team, which will include pit-crew responsibilities. Team working and good communication skills are essential.
