Motorsports Engineering (Foundation Entry) - University of Central Lancashire

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Take your love of motor sports engineering to the next level and satisfy the academic requirements you need to progress to Chartered Engineer status. Our MEng course deepens and embeds your investigative and design skills through additional group and individual projects. In your master's year, you’ll apply high-level analysis methods to design and problem solving, helping you develop professional, consistently accurate and responsible methods. You’ll graduate with the knowledge, hands-on experience and committed and driven attitude towards socially aware engineering you need to successfully enter the industry. You’ll have the option of completing a 48-week industrial placement year, which builds on your academic learning, develops your professional approach, and often leads to successful employment after graduation. We care about your employability, and from the first year we will work to ensure that when you graduate you are attractive to employers. This is done to some extent within the curriculum, but participation in our extra-curricular activities, such as UCLan Racing and Motor Sports Club, is highly recommended. There’s a greater demand now for engineering graduates than ever, so your options in Motorsports Engineering and across the whole engineering spectrum are vast and varied. You could work in in aerospace, the automotive industry, the Ministry of Defence and research development. The School has very good employability statistics and graduates from this course are currently working at companies like Force India F1, Arden International Motor Sport, Tom Tunstall Racing and Century Motor Sport. If you’re looking beyond the motor sports industry, we have had graduates employed in engineering positions at companies like Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley Motors, Airbus, BAE Systems, Helical Technologies, MI Technology, and United Utilities.
