BEng Motorsport Engineering
Duration: 3 years full time
Start date: September each year
The BEng Motorsport Engineering programme is 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 programme aims 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.
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.
|Core Engineering Theme||Design Theme||Applied Technology Theme|
|Year 1||Maths, Thermodynamics, Mechanics and Structures||Computer-aided engineering drawing (CAED)||Vehicle Technology|
|Year 2||Thermofluid Mechanics and Engineering Structural Design||Computational Methods and Group project||Motorsport Vehicle Dynamics and Powertrain Control|
|Year 3||Stress Analysis and Advanced Computational Methods.||Advanced Computational Methods and Major Project||Advanced Motorsport Vehicle Dynamics and Competition Engine Design|
Although not a theme in itself, Engineering Management, introduced in Year 2, underpins a successful approach to both the Group and Major Projects.
