Through this BEng Motorsports Engineering (Hons) course at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) you’ll develop skills in design and development processes through a combination of project based learning, masterclasses, and short courses; culminating in the design and build of a Formula Student race car later in the course.
Engineering science, including engineering analysis, mechanics, and fluid dynamics, underpin much of the design and manufacturing activities on the course. In other Year 1 modules you will learn to use modern manufacturing equipment in our exceptionally well equipped workshop, and you will be introduced to CAD.
There is huge demand for engineering graduates, and a BEng in Motorsports Engineering gives you lots of options. If you complete a placement it will make you even more employable. Students have recently gained placements at Ginetta/SIM Track and McLaren.
Many of our graduates progress into motorsport, and there are many outlets including Formula 1 and other single seater categories, to sportscars (i.e. LMP/LMH), GT and Touring Cars.
This BEng course is professionally accredited by the IMechE (which represents mechanical engineers and the engineering profession) as meeting partial fulfilment of the educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer.
