Online motorsport engineering degree gets green light

The National Motorsport Academy has launched the world's first online motorsport engineering degree

Posted by Rebecca Paddick | May 15, 2016 | Technology

This is the world’s first online motorsports engineering degree, and it’s been designed to appeal to both young students and mature students alike.

College and school leavers can gain practical motorsport experience through taking the “earn while you learn” approach. Meanwhile, because the course is part-time and entirely online, mature students without qualifications can easily balance studying with their work and family commitments.

With low tuition fees and no accommodation fees, the course is accessible to anyone who wants a fresh start, or a new life in the fast lane. 

Not only will our graduates be qualified motorsport engineers with practical experience, they will also be innovative, resourceful, and commercially focused

At the end of the course, you’ll be a highly-qualified motorsport engineer, with all the skills necessary to join any world-class motorsport team or performance enhancement manufacturer. The courses could help equip students for a range of motorsport careers, including race engineer, data acquisition technician, aerodynamicist, propulsion engineer, chassis design engineer, or a drive train engineer. 

Kieran Reeves, director of Motorsport at NMA, said: “We’re pleased to launch the world’s first online motorsport degree. In this competitive, global industry, motorsport engineers must have a broad range of skills demanded by the top teams. Working closely with the industry, we’ve created a courses specifically to meet their requirements.

“Not only will our graduates be qualified motorsport engineers with practical experience, they will also be innovative, resourceful, and commercially focused – all highly-desired skills within this exciting industry.”
