Course content

Our unique MSc in Race Car Aerodynamics is suitable for graduates from engineering, scientific and mathematical backgrounds who want to specialise in aerodynamics for high-speed vehicles. In this course, we will teach you the fundamentals of aerodynamics and you will focus on the analysis, modelling and measurement of turbulent flows associated with high-performance race cars.

Introducing your degree

This postgraduate masters course emphasises the fundamentals of aerodynamics as a subject by focusing on analysis, computation and measurement of turbulent flows associated with high performance race cars. It will suit graduates or similarly qualified individuals from engineering, scientific and mathematical backgrounds, with some experience of fluid dynamics who are aiming for advanced specialisation in aerodynamics.

Overview

Design is a central theme on this course. You will take part in individual and group practical work to detail your insight of race car design and learn to evaluate and apply experimental aerodynamic concepts. You will also learn advanced computational fluid dynamics and numerical procedures to counteract problems in the design process.

The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will have the option to further your understanding by selecting from a range of modules, from Systems Reliability to Automotive Propulsion.

The final four months will hone in on research. You will have access to our world-class facilities, including the RJ Mitchell wind tunnel as used by F1 teams, America's Cup yacht teams and Olympic athletes. As part of the learning process, you will engage in experimental and practical study and complete a critical research project.
