Overview

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. One of the big highlights is to get involved in designing, building and racing a Student Formula car. This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and is the first step towards chartered engineer status.

Career opportunities

Employment prospects are excellent. As one of the top UK motorsport schools, our links with this sector are very strong, providing good placement and employment prospects. Almost every Formula One racing team has a University of Hertfordshire graduate in their design team. Graduates can expect to be employed in design, manufacture or testing in one of the major automotive companies in the UK or abroad. There are also opportunities with the consultancy companies that specialise in vehicle safety. Many other graduates decide to stay at the University and extend their automotive education at a postgraduate level.
