Motorsport Technology with Foundation

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 workshop and on the racetrack. We want to give you 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. On this course you will 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. This degree includes a foundation year to provide the knowledge necessary to continue to degree-level study. The foundation year is an integral part of this four-year course and will provide you with an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of engineering and mathematics. You will study key subjects, including foundation mathematics and mechanics, thermal and environmental studies, and the principles of engineering and electronics. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop valuable practical and investigative experience in our specialist engineering laboratories. This will help prepare you for the transition to degree-level study.
