  • Objectives
    The UK motorsport sector employs 50,000 people, with in excess of 30,000 engaged in full-time engineering roles. There are about 4,000 businesses of various sizes involved in motorsport, and this sector accounts for around 28 per cent of those employed by UK engineering companies. Many major players in international motorsport are UK based, including several F1 teams, F1 Engine Suppliers and World Rally Championship teams. This, of course, is only the tip of the iceberg. The UK also plays host to many other types and levels of motorsport, (at both National and Club level), including various 'Tintop' series, Rallycross, SuperMoto, Scrambling, Sportscars and GT championships, and many of these vehicles, along with various specialist components, are designed and manufactured in this country. This includes companies such as TVR, Ginetta, Caterham, Van Diemen, Lola, AP Racing, Alcon and Helix Autosport, to name but a few.

  • Course description
    Contents of the BEng in Motorsport Engineering.

    The first year of the course is common with BEng(Hons) Mechanical Engineering and our aerospace degrees. You will be provided with a grounding in mathematics, design, manufacturing and mechanical engineering. There will also be specialist motorsport projects and workshops.  n the remaining years, there is still some commonality between the courses, but with added specialist material, for example relating to engine systems and control, materials and structures, and safety. In both the second and third years there is a significant management element.

    The final year project allows you to investigate an engineering problem that is of particular interest to you, while developing engineering, project management and report writing skills. The project forms a quarter of the final year of study and may relate to any part of the course syllabus, although it is expected to involve a motorsport application.
