Fans of F1 motorsport have heard of Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and Sebastian Vettel. But, what about the people that make their success possible? Without the performance engineers and innovators, there would be no racing teams.
Could you be the next head of engineering at Ferrari or Williams? Do you have what it takes? The best way to find out is by studying a Motorsport and Automotive Performance Engineering course. At the University of Bolton, we provide the best courses with the perfect blend of practical and theoretical experience.
Why Practical Experience is a Must
The work environment in motorsports engineering is anything but traditional. The pressure is high, the pace is frantic, and you need to adapt quickly. This is something that no textbook can teach you.
The only way to adjust to a work environment like this is with experience. That's why you need a university that can deliver quality professional placements that help prepare you for the real world of employment in motorsport engineering.
While theory can teach you about performance engineering and its mechanics, only practise can prepare you to set up vehicles on-track and adapt to changing conditions in real-time.
At the University of Bolton, we ensure that you are prepared for a career in this industry by offering a careful blend of theory, lab time, and practical work. This ensures that you have all the experience required to walk straight into a job in the industry.
We would also recommend that you take every opportunity available to gather experience, whether this means applying for an unpaid position on the weekends or doing some volunteer work during the summer months. Build up your contacts in the motorsport industry and get as much experience on your CV as possible.
