With industry-standard specialist motorsport facilities, including a £1.25million trackside teaching centre at Castle Combe, a course in Motorsport Engineering with us is a unique experience. We'll help you develop the detailed knowledge and practical skillset to thrive in the exhilarating world of motorsports.

We offer a variety of courses from Level 2 and Level 3 based at our Chippenham campus, to our highly popular degrees taught at our specialist motorsport facility at Castle Combe.

Our Castle Combe teaching centre features a range of state-of-the-art equipment, including a six-car workshop, CAD machinery, a wind tunnel, 3D printing and more. You’ll work on a variety of vehicles including FF1600s, MG ZR rally cars, and Honda Civics, taking part in multiple championships including the Castle Combe’s FF1600 Championship and Hot Hatch series. We have fantastic links within the industry including Jaguar Land Rover, Swindon Engines, Cooper Avon Tyres as well as a range of additional companies and Motorsport teams. Our students have previously completed work experience placements with a local multi championship winning Formula Ford team, independent garages and of course at the Castle Combe Circuit.

What our students say

I love workshop lessons and transforming the race cars. It’s amazing to know what you started with and then see what ends up on the track as a result of your own work.

David Campion,
Deputy Head of Engineering (Motorsport),

Initially, I worked at the University of Wales as a technician, moving into lecturing and becoming the university’s chief motorsport engineer. Whilst at the University of Wales, I helped develop a Formula Student car, which finished the UK Competition in sixth place. From then I moved to the College, lecturing on the Level 2 course in Motorsport Engineering and subsequently becoming the HE Programme Lead.
