Motorsport’s not just exciting entertainment, but also an important part of automotive development. It challenges engineers to be innovative in using the latest technologies to design high-performance vehicles. You’ll find most modules on this course are common with those on our general automotive engineering degree. However, you’ll also learn about aerodynamics of high- speed vehicles and high-performance engine design, testing and mapping. In your MEng year, you’ll deepen your understanding of the industry. One of the big highlights is to get involved in designing, building and racing a car at the IMechE Formula Student events. This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and is the first step towards chartered engineer status.
As one of the top UK motorsport schools, our links with the sector are very strong, providing good placement and employment prospects. Almost every Formula One racing team has a University of Hertfordshire graduate in its design team. You can also expect to be employed in design, manufacturing or testing in one of the major automotive companies in the UK or internationally.
