You’ll cover the technical aspects of designing, building, and maintaining racing cars and learn to develop innovative engineering solutions to maximise performance. Some of the skills you will learn during a Masters in Motorsport Engineering include race vehicle design, race vehicle dynamics, race vehicle setup, and race vehicle data analysis.
Your learning will be underpinned by the latest research, with some programmes offering the opportunity to apply your learning in an industrial placement or project. Studying a Masters in Motorsport Engineering can enable you to learn about topics ranging from advanced powertrains and vehicle safety to aerodynamics and sustainable fuel sources.
In terms of entry requirements, you should have an undergraduate background in Mechanical Engineering (or a related discipline). If you’ve got substantial professional experience, this can also be a factor in the application process.
