I am sure the other Universities offering courses in Motorsport Engineering also have similar pages, listing the motorsport teams that recruit their graduates.

Hope this helps. Wishing you the very best.

Thanks for the reply.

As a matter of fact I have gone through these links earlier and found them quite useful. But my main concern is getting employed after a course like this. Does anyone have first hand experience doing a course like this?

@Arvi95, I believe that recruitment after such a course will be strictly merit and own-initiative based and will not follow conventional placement / recruitment formats for other mainstream degree holders.

Just received this :

Thanks for the reply. I agree completely that this is a highly specialised field, not the brightest career path for a young engineer like me, but my passion is what's pushing me into it. I just have to weigh the other options as well before I take a plunge into this. Hopefully others who have been in my situation could share their experiences here for the benefit of all.

Hi DDC,

As Arvi95 has already learned, this isn't a field for the faint of heart.

So, job security isn't what you should be looking for in motorsports ... and it's something you won't need, if you're demonstrably better than your peers in your work and results.

As mentioned previously, your preferred destination should be the UK.

Good luck, if you do decide to take the plunge.

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift
