This Race Car Aerodynamics MSc course offered by the University of Southampton is ideal if you:
- are from an engineering, scientific or maths backgrounds
- have some experience of fluid dynamics
- want to specialise in aerodynamics for high-performance vehicles
You’ll take part in individual and group practical work as well as a critical research project, developing your expertise in race car design, and learn to evaluate and apply experimental aerodynamic concepts.
You’ll also learn advanced computational fluid dynamics and numerical procedures to counteract problems that may occur in the design process.
You’ll benefit from state-of-the-art facilities including high-performance computers and the RJ Mitchell Wind Tunnel, the largest university wind tunnel in the UK.
Recent graduates have gone on to work in Formula One teams such as Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport and Racing Point Force India.
