Master Race Car Engineer

The Racing Car Engineer Master’s at MTS is designed to train and specialise Track Engineers in the motor sector who will then join Teams working at national and international championships. It provides theoretical classes and practical experience with racing vehicles taught by expert instructors from a variety of Motorsport sectors, such as F1, F2, F4, F4, ELMS, WEC and Formula E.

The Master’s course involves significant synergy with the Motorbike Racing Mechanic Course, which translates into working directly on racing bikes in the pits at the Monza Racetrack, with practical sessions on special topics such as suspension, transmission and setup.

There are 3 days on the track, where the primary objective will be to simulate, as much as possible, the real experience in the pits. Here the Track Engineers will work on a racing bike driven by a professional rider, in synergy with the telemetry analysts and mechanics on the Motor Racing Course, putting into practice what they have learned during the theoretical and practical classes.

The course also involves educational visits to leading companies in the racing industry and participation in the Master’s, taught in English, by engineers and leading figures from the Motorsport world. The course will take place at the Monza Racetrack and the MTS Training Centre in Lesmo.

Hands-on approach

The Master’s course has a predominantly practical approach: indeed there will be five days on the track and one day at the simulator to allow students to enjoy a real experience and be ready to face the job market knowing what being part of a team involves.

hours of training
The Master’s will be held over the weekend from Friday to Sunday, for a total of 300 hours, divided into 13 weeks from November to March. The days on the track may also take place on Thursdays.

Selection process

Since 2011, MTS has developed a refined selection method to guarantee that only people with specific technical requirements join the Master’s course. At the end of the course, this ensures that top students are able to join Teams as Track Engineers.
