Motorsport Engineering with Professional Development

Mechanical Engineering is the most established subject area at Brunel. It is one of very few in the UK that provides broad education in mechanical, energy, aeronautics, building services and automotive/motorsport engineering. Our annual Brunel Engineers event offers you the opportunity to demonstrate your final-year work to fellow students and industry representatives. This exciting celebration brings together the creative minds of our final-year students to showcase projects ranging from nano and micro engineering to larger scale aviation projects. Our dynamic student Brunel Racing TT Team enter the TT zero electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man and our Brunel Racing FS team compete in the Formula Student competitions every year. Wherever your interests lie, we are confident that you’ll find the course that is right for you at Brunel. All our courses are offered as BEng or MEng programmes. If you join us on the BEng you can transfer to the MEng programme at the end of the second year, provided you reach a certain progression standard. The final year of the MEng will broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of the discipline to prepare you for the leadership needs of industry. You can choose the full-time route or include a year’s placement by opting to go on a high-quality work placement usually between Levels 2 and 3. You’ll gain experience and academic credit and develop the competencies valued by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, fast-tracking you towards Chartered or Incorporated Engineer status. Brunel’s on-campus Professional Development Centre can help you find the placement that is right for you. Our specialist degree in motorsport engineering will provide you with a rigorous and traditional academic education. You’ll develop an appreciation of the highly competitive and commercial nature of the automotive industry and of the fast-moving motorsport sector in particular. We’ll give you the opportunity to put theory into practice. The Brunel Racing Formula Student team, led by students, is consistently successful in Formula Student competitions. The Brunel Racing TT student team enters the TT Zero electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man each year, competing against professionals including Mugen and Parker Racing. Our BEng and MEng courses share a common first two years. You’ll be taught in lectures, laboratory sessions, design studio workshops and one-to-one supervision. You’ll demonstrate your learning through assignments, project work, reports on laboratory practicals, oral presentations, tests and examinations. We have a reputation for developing graduates of the highest calibre. If you opt for a sandwich course you’ll spend a year on an industrial placement, working in motorsport or a related industry. Our graduates are often offered full-time jobs with their placement employers. You’ll find Brunel graduates wherever there is excellence in motorsport including with Mercedes F1, Williams, Force India F1, Lotus, McLaren Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Red Bull and Triumph Motorcycles.
