BEng Motorcycle Engineering
The University has a long history of involvement in motorcycle education. The skills you will gain on this course are completely transferrable to the wider automotive engineering industry which also provides an outstanding career path for many of our graduates.
Duration: 3 years full time
Start date: September each year
The BEng Motorcycle Engineering programme is intended to provide you with a thorough grounding in mechanical engineering science and its application to design and the solution of a range of engineering problems in the context of the motorsport engineering industry. Specialist areas of study including advanced competition engine design and competition 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.
|Core Engineering Theme||Design Theme||Applied Technology Theme|
|Year 1||Maths, Thermodynamics, Mechanics and Structures||Computer-aided engineering drawing (CAED)||Motorcycle Technology|
|Year 2||Thermofluid Mechanics and Engineering Structural Design||Computational Methods and Group project||Motorcycle Dynamics and Engine Performance|
|Year 3||Stress Analysis and Advanced Computational Methods.||Advanced Computational Methods and Major Project||Motorcycle Research and Development|
Although not a theme in itself, Engineering Management, introduced in Year 2, underpins a successful approach to both the Group and Major Projects.
