This Motorsport Engineering course runs in 2016/17.

Motorsport is at the cutting edge of innovation in the global engineering industry and the UK is a world leader in the field. This course is designed to help ensure it stays that way.


Coventry is a world-renowned centre for motorsport and performance engineering on both two wheels and four. Excellent links with the UK performance engineering industry ensure that the course benefits from the latest technical content and provides you with broad and detailed coverage of the essentials of motorsport engineering and its key applications.

Our Motorsport Engineering degree course aims to equip you with the necessary expertise for you to make a significant and early contribution to both industry and society as a Graduate Motorsport Engineer.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • Close links with employers in the performance engineering industry, including Red Bull Racing, the Auto-Cycle Union, Lotus Cars, Penske Racing and Triumph Motorcycles;
  • state-of-the-art facilities including a new wind tunnel, a new CNC machining centre, a new engine test cell and a full-size shaker rig;
  • regular lectures delivered by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE);
  • placement opportunities for you to apply for with a wide variety of motorsport and performance engineering companies, across a range of disciplines;
  • the chance to be involved in exciting projects, such as Formula Student and/or Shell Eco-marathon;
  • this course meets, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer and students will need to complete an approved format of further learning pursuant to the requirements of UK-SPEC. The BEng(Hons) also automatically meets the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

The Faculty’s Employability and Placement team, EC Futures, are the proud winners of the Best University Placement Service (UK 2015) presented by the NUE Awards. 


You will study subjects designed to broaden your knowledge of motorsport engineering, as well as to further your understanding of the fundamental concepts of engineering such as stress, temperature, kinematics and dynamics.

You will specialise in Performance Engineering, Design for Performance, Aerodynamics, Vehicle Dynamics, Powertrain, Advanced Materials and Manufacture, and the Motorsport Group Project.

Your main themes of study will be:

Design: the innovative resolution of design problems focused on commercially viable solutions.

Analysis: you will learn to use industry standard software to model, analyse and validate vehicle behaviour, components and systems.

Management: the application of principles and practices utilised to assure effective business operation.

Sustainability: an ethical approach to work by protecting the best interests of life and the environment.

Practical: investigation and analysis using laboratory, workshop and computer-based techniques.


Your course features a range of learning opportunities, from lectures, seminars and tutorials to laboratories and workshops. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.

You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you can develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 35%; coursework, tests, essays 40%; practical or project work 10%; group work etc.10%; presentations, posters etc.5%.

A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.


In a typical week you will have up to 20 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1 hour tutor group session each week with your personal tutor

Medium group teaching: 7 hours of seminars, practical laboratory or workshops each week

Large group teaching: 8-12 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: you should spend between 16-20 hours each week studying and revising in your own time including some guided study using handouts, online activities etc.
