Bud­ding mo­tor sport en­gi­neers now have the chance to gain a qual­i­fi­ca­tion via on­line cour­ses.

The Foun­da­tion De­gree in Mo­tor­sport En­gi­neer­ing, run by the Na­tional Mo­tor­sport Academy, takes in math­e­mat­ics, race car de­sign and prepa­ra­tion, re­search and de­vel­op­ment anal­y­sis, fluid dy­nam­ics, data ac­qui­si­tion and more. Work ex­pe­ri­ence and re­search study is a key part of the course. A fi­nal-year top up course to gain the full Mo­tor­sport En­gi­neer­ing de­gree in­cludes ad­vanced en­gine de­vel­op­ment and aero­dy­nam­ics. It’s es­ti­mated that the course can be com­pleted in 36 months.

While the course is widely ap­pli­ca­ble to mo­tor­sport of all kinds, much of the learn­ing can be ap­plied to his­toric rac­ing too. The Na­tional Mo­tor­sport Academy is part of the NDA Foun­da­tion, a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion com­mit­ted to en­abling wider ac­cess to higher ed­u­ca­tion through on­line learn­ing, and runs in part­ner­ship with Stafford­shire Univer­sity.
