On this course you will learn engineering principles and analytical techniques, alongside gaining hands-on experience such as dismantling, studying and rebuilding a racing car and driver training. You will also have the opportunity to join Brookes’ consistently successful Formula Student team. You will study in our purpose-built premises which house the latest industrial-standard test facilities. You will also benefit from our strong links with the local automotive, manufacturing and autosports industries.

Course details


In Year 1, as well as studying mathematics, engineering principles, design and management, you will work in small groups to strip a car, rebuild it, and deepen your understanding of automotive design. In Year 2 you will develop your analytical skills through a study of dynamics, thermodynamics and stress analysis and then apply them in design. In your final year you will study specialised automotive engineering subjects. You will also select a project of personal interest from our research and industrial activities. If you wish to extend your degree you may seek selection for the four-year MEng course, which provides complete exemption from the Engineering Council exams parts one and two. You can also apply from elsewhere to join our MEng in the third year.
