Automotive / Motorsport Engineering

Programs Offered

  • Motorsport Engineering
  • Automotive Engineering

School of Engineering offers dual award program with (2 yrs in India & remaining 2 years compulsory study abroad) in collaboration with Pearson BTEC award and University of Hertfordshire, UK. There are two degree option to choose from the University of Hertfordshire in the UK

The first two years is a common electronic engineering subjects, further allowing the students to make an informed decision on what Mechanical discipline they want to specialise and the choice of University.


The industry recognises the need to produce senior managers capable of handling complex problems for manufacturing competitive advantage. Mechanical Engineering has been highly successful and over the years and has produced thousands of successful graduates working in all fields of engineering. Students can apply knowledge to typical mechanical projects such as the design of a hovercraft. During the course, you may join the automotive students and help design, build and race single-seater car in the UK Formula Student competition.

This course is developed by Pearson Education, UK in collaboration with the British employers like BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and university partners Brunel University, Coventry University College, UCL and Warwickshire College. Our team of academic professional have dedicatedly worked with University of Hertfordshire, UK and RMIT - Melbourne Australia to offer progression pathway for our students to study remaining two years in UK or Australia.

Students admitted to the program will learn the standard units of Mechanical program for the first two years before they choose the specialisations in Manufacturing Engineering and Mechatronics.

Study Abroad :


Motorsport Engineering/Technology Automotive Engineering (Accredited by Engineering Council, UK & Washington Accord)


RMIT Australia - Accredited by Engineers

RMIT World Rankings #92 in the world for Engineering & Technology, #71 in the world for Employability. *source: QS ranking website

Whilst this course shares some modules with both the Aerospace Systems Engineering and Automotive Engineering programmes, it gives you flexibility to gain employment across a broader range of industries. It is also the first step towards gaining chartered engineer status. This course will help you learn the fundamental skills and knowledge required by the modern engineer including principles of flight and an introduction to aircraft systems, in particular, you will be introduced to computer packages commonly used in the aerospace industry. You will learn about the design process and will have the opportunity to work on the class 200 Formula Student Car. If you are taking a specialisation in Mechatronics you will learn to handle a wide range of technologies in sensors, actuators, interface hardware, control system, analogue and digital electronics, software engineering and concurrent design. Gain knowledge and skills in manufacturing engineering relative to; complex systems and strategies including business and financial questions, technological advances in intelligent systems robotics and materials.


RMIT: Graduates from RMIT/Hertfordshire are working in F1 teams, Porsche, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Audi, BMW, Daimler-Chrysler and Bosch.


Student applying for this program should have the passion for working with Mechanical, Robotic materials and Product design and sound knowledge of secondary level Mathematics and Physics. Admission to this program is purely based on student performance in the admission interview. The typical student must have completed higher secondary education (or) A level with merit profile and have completed 17 years of age at the time of enrollment.
