Scholarships for undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes
As an introduction to mathematical and scientific principles, in preparation for university studies in science and engineering.
The FdEng in Motorsport Engineering has been developed by Brooklands College and Oxford Brookes University as preparation for a range of technical and management careers in performance road car technology.
This foundation degree (FdEng) has been developed by University Centre Somerset, part of Bridgwater and Taunton College and Oxford Brookes University as preparation for a range of technical and management careers in motorsport engineering.
This foundation degree (FdEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering has been developed by Oxford Brookes University and Abingdon and Witney College, which is an associate partner college of Oxford Brookes. The course is taught at the college, and will prepare you for a range of technical and management careers in electrical/electronic engineering.
This foundation degree (FdEng) in Mechanical Engineering has been developed by Abingdon and Witney College and Oxford Brookes University, to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed for a technical or management career in the mechanical engineering industry.
The foundation degree (FdEng) in Motorsports - Performance and Automotive Technology has been developed by Oxford Brookes and Banbury and Bicester College. Based at the Bicester Campus, it will prepare you for a range of careers in the motorsports industry.
BEng (Hons), MEng
Our graduates design the world's best cars, most go into Motorsports but many also design performance road cars. Students who complete the course and appropriate matching section will be eligible to apply for the chartered CEng status during their career.
This course will prepare you for a career in any area of mechanical engineering, either as a specialist in a particular field or as an engineer with a broad range of responsibilities. The course is enhanced by the involvement of several local companies offering industrial placement opportunities to sandwich students.
BSc (Hons) single
This course will enable you to express your design ideas as computer models. This may range from simple to very complex three-dimensional parametric models which simulate the forces acting on the different parts of the system and their motion, allowing the user to study how the system works before it is manufactured.
The content of the course is similar to our MEng/BEng in Automotive Engineering, but differs by including several motorsport specific options available only on this course. Students who complete the course and appropriate matching section will be eligible to apply for the chartered CEng status during their career.
Our BSc (Hons) in Motorsport Technology gives your motorsport career a head start. The degree offers three years of study including membership of our Formula Student team.
This course is a one-year top-up programme designed to enable students from Foundation Degrees (Science) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering to obtain a BSc (Hons) in Electronic Engineering.
The MSc in Automotive Engineering provides an opportunity for in-depth study of the engineering that enables and drives forward this vital worldwide industry. The key components of the course cover: design, with a focus on vehicle chassis and performance, sustainability, reliability, aerodynamics, and issues of comfort like noise, vibration and harshness.
Great engineering design turns great ideas into great products. If this is your aim, then the MSc Mechanical Engineering will give you the skills you need to achieve it. Developing the skills to take complex products all the way from idea to fully-validated designs, you will use the most advanced CAD packages and learn the techniques required to analyse your work, testing designs in virtual reality to see how they perform and how reliable they are.
The MSc in Motorsport Engineering offered by Oxford Brookes provides the opportunity for you to specialise in areas such as engine technology, chassis performance, racing engineering, reliability and risk management, materials, simulation and data analysis. Staff teaching on this course have F1 experience and design skills.
The motorsport industry in the UK is a world leader and many of the world's most advanced high-performance engines are designed here. The MSc in Racing Engine Design is intended to enhance and extend your knowledge in engine design. You will be taught by staff with many years experience of racing engines, from performance road cars, through rally, IRL, Kart and F3 right up to F1.
Our industrial placement programme has been commended by professional bodies as a model of excellence. We have excellent industrial links and placement opportunities with local automotive and product manufacturing companies.
