Work-based learning and competition projects form an integral part of the programme, which is demonstrated through the recent success at the Castle Combe Formula Ford Championship, which was won by a Wiltshire College car entirely developed, maintained and run by students for a local driver.
You will study all aspects of competition vehicle design and manufacture, including chassis, power train, aerodynamics, telemetry and electronics and apply this knowledge in the practical setting of competition vehicle preparation.
Work based learning and competition projects form an integral part of the programme.
Castle Combe circuit is a unique teaching and vocational learning centre with workshops, laboratories and classrooms, which has been purpose-built to accommodate the course. The centre offers you the opportunity to work in an industry-standard environment on cars that compete regularly, enabling you to experience the real-life pressures of working in the motorsport arena in preparation for gaining employment.
After completing the first two years you will gain a Foundation Degree (FD). You may choose to continue into a third year (BSc Hons top up) to give you the opportunity to achieve a full Honours degree at Wiltshire College.
