About the course

Ask Brunel

The Brunel Automotive and Motorsport Engineering MSc gives graduates with a passion for motorsports and high-performance vehicles the advanced, specialist skills and knowledge they need to successfully pursue careers in this dynamic and competitive field of engineering.

You’ll study all aspects of the design, development and construction of competition vehicles including aerodynamics, materials, structural analysis, IC engines and vehicle systems and how to use tools like computational modelling, simulation and data analysis to assess performance, strength, costs and safety.

You’ll also develop managerial skills integral to race team operations such as race planning, vehicle testing, marketing concepts, leadership, risk management and employment.

Student Profile(s)

Saurabh Ambre

103.jpg I am an ardent Formula one aficionado, but specializing merely in Motorsport engineering would restrict my learning capabilities. Brunel University is the only institute to offer a Masters course in Automotive and Motorsport Engineering, a course with modules from both streams. Brunel has a practical approach towards education as students are given an opportunity to work together in teams to build a single seat race car for Formula Student competition. The course enables students to spend time at the race track during several motorsport events. The exposure received and the interaction with automotive companies also benefits ones' career. Brunel University was amongst the first few UK Universities to enter the Formula Student competition and has won awards every year since 1999. The competition is run by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and it aims to inspire young Engineers by challenging them to design, manufacture and test a race car. The teams are scrutinized on their vehicle design and business strategy.

At Brunel, I led a team of 20 postgraduate Engineers from 8 different countries in developing a single seat race car for the Formula Student UK competition in 2012. Strong leadership tact and managerial skills are characteristics that I have both inherited and developed while studying for this course. During my role as team principal of Brunel Master Motorsport (BMM-8), I was able to recognise my strengths and weaknesses and showcase my talents but more importantly learn from my mistakes. Due to the valuable inputs and efforts from all members, the team accomplished 3rd place in the competition.

I would recommend every international student to definitely apply for the Brunel international scholarship award; it is worth your effort and time. I was awarded the Scholarship in 2010/2011.

My principal goal is to work towards academic excellence and broaden my horizon as a keen learner and lover of technology. I want to pursue my career in the world of Automotive / Motorsport and would like to dedicate my work towards efficient technologies without compromising performance. I would like to dedicate my engineering skills in developing innovative products / concepts for future development in the automotive industry.
I am currently training on automated CNC machines required for manufacturing processes in the automotive industry. I have a few job offers from International companies based in India, but have still yet to decide.
