Motorsport is exciting – for the drivers, for the spectators and for the engineers and technicians involved. If the idea of a career striving to achieve optimal performance and efficiency in race car design and set-up gets your motor revving then this is the course for you.
At the University of Bolton you can study in the classroom, in the laboratory, in the workshop and on the race track. We want to help you gain a sound understanding of the engineering principles and theories essential in motorsport technology, and develop your practical expertise in our industry-standard facilities and while working with our partner racing teams.
The foundation year is the first year of this degree, offering an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, electronics and mathematics. It’s designed to prepare you for degree level study.
Following on from this, you’ll look at all aspects of race cars and motorsport. Modules cover aerodynamics, performance optimisation, aspects of safety and much more. We work to help you develop skills in motorsport-focused computer aided design (CAD), engineering, mathematics, business and management. This combination of technical knowledge, practical experience and transferable skills will help you get ready for success in this high-octane industry.
