Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study Motorsport and Automotive Performance Engineering?
If you love motorsports and the cutting edge of automotive performance, then a degree in Motorsport and Automotive Performance Engineering is the perfect fit for you. Taking mechanical and automotive engineering disciplines to the limits of their specialism, you could find yourself working with an F1 team or innovating the next groundbreaking advance in component design.
Automotive performance engineering takes the normal requirements of engineering to the next level. When winning the race can depend on the tiniest of marginal advantages over the competition, the optimal performance of every single moving part in the vehicle matters. We’re talking about precision to the degree of how temperatures make metals behave in spaces where micrometers are the difference between functionality and failure.
So if you want to apply your love for motoring perfection, look no further. The University of Bolton’s £13 million state-of-the-art specialist workshops and laboratories, the only national centre for motorsport engineering in the UK, are built specifically for automotive performance engineering and motorsport technology.
