National Centre for Motorsport Engineering Confirmed as Official Partner of the Careers & Education Area04 Dec 2017
The National Centre for Motorsport Engineering (NCME) is to partner with Autosport International’s dedicated Careers and Education area to offer students and prospective engineers within the automotive, biomedical, civil, mechanical and electrical sectors bespoke career advice.
The National Centre for Motorsport Engineering will have staff with extensive motorsport industry expertise present alongside a number of its students on a dedicated stand across all four days of Europe’s biggest pre-season motorsport show at the NEC Birmingham from 11-14 January 2018.
Autosport International is the perfect place for students to come and speak to universities and colleges about advice on how to find a route into the multi-billion-pound industry. One of the key challenges for the engineering industry is to recruit the candidates with relevant experience across the sector. The NCME is an all-new state-of-the-art £13 million facility that opened in time for the new academic year this September.
Featuring Manufacturing and Test workshops, carbon-fibre laboratories and wind tunnels as well as the university’s own competition cars, NCME offers students modern engineering and design facilities providing the education and experience needed to work in the highly competitive world of motorsport, automotive supply chain, aerospace or associated industries.
The NCME supports the UK’s rapidly-growing £9 billion motorsport providing courses in Automotive Performance Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Motorsport Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
NCME offers two degree courses, each available full-time with a foundation year. The Automotive Performance Engineering BEng (Hons) course is ideal for students entering from A Level studies, while the Motorsport Technology BSc (Hons) course suits BTEC entrants. Students across both courses benefit from learning practical skills in everything from advanced engineering to aerodynamics, CAD and much more.
The Careers and Education area of the show will also incorporate the Talk Shop stage (previously known as Tech Talk) where experts from a range of disciplines within the industry will share their advice and insight to all visitors across the four days of Autosport International.
Dr Mark Busfield, Director of NCME said: “Autosport International is the perfect event with a relevant fit for us to officially launch the new National Centre for Motorsport Engineering to the industry. We will use the show to engage with prospective students and build relationships within the motorsport sector”.
Autosport International Show Director Kate Woodley said: “We are delighted to have the National Centre for Motorsport Engineering partner with the dedicated Careers and Education area at Autosport International.
“The show plays host to a plethora of trade and motorsport exhibitors from across the globe, all looking for the next up-and-coming stars of the engineering world. The team will offer future engineers the best advice at the show and the perfect facility to learn within its new National Centre for Motorsport Engineering.”
