MSc in Motorsport Engineering
The MSc in Motorsport Engineering course offered by Oxford Brookes provides the opportunity for you to specialise in areas such as engine technology, chassis performance, racing engineering, management, materials, simulation and data analysis.
The course provides intensive exposure to integrated design, simulation, modelling, analysis, motorsport components and racing cars. The analysis elements in the modules include structural optimisation, dynamics, internal combustion, engine thermo-fluid dynamics, vehicle performance, tuning and monitoring. Staff teaching on this course have F1 experience and design skills.
Teaching learning and assessment
Teaching methods vary according to the subject, but typically include lectures and seminars to provide a sound theoretical base, and practical work designed to demonstrate important aspects of theory or systems operation. Visiting speakers from business and industry provide valuable insights.
Coursework exercises, essays, presentations and laboratory exercises form the basis for continuous assessment.
The methods of assessment include examination and coursework, reflecting the development of academic content from the more practical aspects to the more conceptual.
Our graduates enjoy the very best employment opportunities, with hundreds of engineering students having gone onto successful careers in their chosen industry. Many of our students go on to work with leading motorsport companies, including directly into F1 teams and suppliers.
You should normally hold a first degree equivalent to at least a British lower second-class bachelor's degree in mechanical, automotive or motorsport engineering or a related discipline. Applicants with relevant professional experience will also be considered.
