Brunel University London

Course Introduction

The Brunel Automotive and Motorsport Engineering MSc gives graduates with a passion for motorsports and high-performance vehicles the advanced, specialist skills and knowledge they need to successfully pursue careers in this dynamic and competitive field of engineering. You?ll study all aspects of the design, development and construction of competition vehicles including aerodynamics, materials, structural analysis, IC engines and vehicle systems and how to use tools like computational modelling, simulation and data analysis to assess performance, strength, costs and safety. You?ll also develop managerial skills integral to race team operations such as race planning, vehicle testing, marketing concepts, leadership, risk management and employment.

The programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), which means your degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK. Throughout your studies you?ll have use of our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, which comprise our motorsport workshop, and 24-hour access to industry-standard specialist software for engineering design at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you?ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems. The only thing faster than a speeding racing car, it seems, is the speed of change in motorsport technology and practice. Your Brunel postgraduate engineering degree will give you the technical and managerial skills to meet the challenges presented by the industry?s constant drive for improvement and set you apart in the eyes of prospective employers.

There is high demand for graduate engineers ready to tackle the challenges of the future. These include finding ways to design and build vehicles more cost effectively, addressing wider environmental and safety concerns, and working in motor racing.
