Motorsport is the proving ground for future technology in the automotive industry. This course has much in common with the MEng/BEng degree in Automotive Engineering but with a particular emphasis on improving vehicle handling and vehicle performance. A highly successful track record in the IMechE Formula Student Competition has established the University as one of the key providers of motorsport engineering in the country and this professionally-accredited degree provides the first steps to gaining chartered engineer status.
