MSc - Master of Science
Road Vehicle Engineering
Brunel's Automotive and Motorsport Engineering MSc gives graduates with a passion for motorsports and high-performance vehicles the advanced, specialist skills and knowledge they need to successfully pursue careers in this dynamic and competitive field of engineering.
You’ll study all aspects of the design, development and construction of competition vehicles including aerodynamics, materials, structural analysis, IC engines and vehicle systems and how to use tools like computational modelling, simulation and data analysis to assess performance, strength, costs and safety.
You’ll also develop managerial skills integral to race team operations such as race planning, vehicle testing, marketing concepts, leadership, risk management and employment.
Your education will profit from the research done at our Centre for Advanced Powertrain and Fuels (CAPF), one of the largest and most active engine research groups in the UK.
There's a group project to design a single seater racing vehicle that you’ll present at the annual Formula Student event at Silverstone, the world’s largest student engineering design competition. This project mimics an actual professional racing team; you work to a schedule and budget and are expected to promote your team image through marketing and sponsorship.
Careers and your future
There is high demand for graduate engineers ready to tackle the challenges of the future. These include finding ways to design and build vehicles more cost effectively, addressing wider environmental and safety concerns, and working in motor racing.
Our graduates go on to careers with leading automotive companies (e.g. Jaguar Land Rover, Delphi, Ford). They also work with motor racing teams such as Mercedes, Red Bull, Williams and Lotus.
