Racing Car Engineer
Become a Track Engineer in the Motor sector and work in Formula 1: a master’s taught in English where you will learn all the secrets of working on a racing car and join the Teams working at national and international championships.
Racing Car Engineer Master's
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 Motor Racing Mechanic Course, which translates into working directly on racing cars in the pits at the Monza Racetrack, with practical sessions on special topics such as suspension, transmission and setup.
There are 5 days on the track where the primary objective will be to simulate, as much as possible, the real experience in the pits, where the Track Engineers will work on a racing car driven by a professional driver, collaborating with the Telemetry Analysts and Mechanics from the Motor Racing Mechanic Course. This way you will be able to put into practice what you have learned during the theoretical and practical classes.
At the end of the course, there will be a day at the driving simulator, a tool widely used by teams to prepare for races.
Moreover, the course involves educational visits to leading companies in the racing industry and educational visits by engineers and prominent figures from the Motorsport world. The course will take place at the Monza Racetrack and the MTS Training Centre in Lesmo.
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.
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.
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.
