Racing Engine Design
The course provides an intensive exposure to an integrated design, simulation, modelling and analysis of racing engines. The analysis elements of the modules include structural optimisation, dynamics, internal combustion engine thermo-fluid dynamics, engine performance, tuning, mapping and monitoring. Teaching is based in a purpose-designed engineering building.
Applicants should normally hold a 1st degree, equivalent to at least a British lower 2nd class bachelor's degree, in mechanical, automotive or motorsport engineering or a related discipline. Applicants with relevant professional experience will also be considered. If the applicants 1st language is not English then evidence is required that they hold a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent.
Compulsory modules include: Racing engine design; advanced strength of components; advanced engineering management; dissertation. Optional modules include: advanced powertrain engineering; computation and modelling; CAD/CAM; data acquisition systems.
Assessment methods include examination and coursework reflecting the development of academic content from the more practical aspects to the more conceptual. Coursework exercises, essays, presentations and laboratory exercises form the basis for continuous assessment.
Partial scholarships of �500 are available for international (non-EU) students.
