G68 Bachelor of Technology (Motorsports)

This course develops core problem solving abilities and the technical, financial and management skills associated with manufacturing industries in general, and the motorsports industry in particular. Students gain a solid understanding of the design, simulation and fabrication processes, and the management issues associated with production of the complex automotive systems and the components that underpin the motorsport industry. The course provides a stimulating and supportive learning environment with an enthusiastic and articulate approach which reflects the culture of motorsports.  Students have the opportunity to further develop competencies through the provision of extra-curricular activities, to help progression into the motorsports industry. They also have broader employment opportunities in product design and development, manufacturing, marketing and project management.



Overseas students may be admitted to this course subject to satisfying English proficiency entry requirements, in addition to meeting academic admission requirements.



During the course, students will be required to undertake a minimum of 8 weeks practical work experience located in an engineering technology industry environment. This will normally be undertaken during a vacation period, even though it is listed as a unit for Year 3 (ENS3173).


Standard University admission requirements apply. 


Note: Students who have not passed either:
- WACE Mathematics 3A/3B, or equivalent; or
- WACE Physics 3A/3B, or equivalent
will be required to complete bridging units during the first year of their studies.
