  • Academic title
    Motorsport Vehicle Dynamics PgDip/MSc
  • Course description
    What will you study?
    You will gain an in-depth understanding of motorsport vehicle dynamics and learn how the individual sub-sets of vehicle dynamics impact on each other and on the overall vehicle performance. You will gain extensive practical experience of industry-standard static and transient set-up equipment, procedures and protocols relating to whole vehicle dynamics.

    You will develop a critical awareness of the current trends and advancements in motorsport vehicle development. You will also gain a detailed understanding of industry-standard development, simulation and analysis tools. Additional studentcentred experience of race-car set-up will be gained through exposure to appropriate set-up and race days.

    Your MSc project gives you the opportunity to study a real-world problem within the motorsport industry.
