Learning and assessment
In Year 1 you will study mathematics, engineering principles, design and management. You will familiarise yourself with engineering systems and manufacture through practical work.
In Year 2 you will develop your analytical skills by studying:
- Stress Analysis and Dynamics
- Mathematics and Modelling
You will work on group design tasks and utilise engineering analysis software. You also have the option to take a one year placement before progressing to the third year of academic study.
In your final year you will study specialised automotive engineering and motorsport subjects, such as:
- Vehicle Aerodynamics
- Automotive Engines
- Motorsport Vehicle Performance
- Vehicle Dynamics
If you wish to extend your degree you can switch to the four-year MEng course. The first three years of the MEng run parallel with the BEng course. And the final year of the MEng allows you to broaden and deepen your studies.
After you graduate
The United Kingdom is the home of the motorsport industry and it employs many graduates each year. Several generations of our students are in F1 companies as race engineers, designers, aerodynamicists, chassis and powertrain engineers.
There are also postgraduate learning opportunities open through the department at MSc or PhD level.
Many students progress onto MSc or PhD programmes upon completion of a BEng or MEng degree. There are a range of MSc programmes offered by the department enabling BEng graduates to specialise in a specific engineering field or for MEng graduates there are PhD opportunities.
Free language courses
Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.
