MSc Automotive and Motorsport Engineering

Course Description

The primary aim of this programme is to create Master's Degree graduates with qualities and transferable skills for challenging employment in the motorsport and automotive industries. The graduates will have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development and acquiring new skills at a high level.

This course will combine modules in automotive and motorsport engineering to develop graduates who are well equipped with the knowledge and skills to work in the multi-discipline area typically encountered in the automotive and motorsport engineering industry. The programme will help students the imaginative and creative skills necessary for a successful career in this field both at national and international levels.
The course will allow students the option of specialising in automotive engineering or motorsport engineering. Every student also produces a group project, usually carried out with four or five other students.

(Student Profile)

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.
