Autosport to feature automotive education exhibits

Exhibitors at this year’s Autosport International show include some of the biggest companies and several leading universities presenting their courses and the achievements of current students at the show.

Eleven of the UK’s leading tertiary institutions renowned for their engineering courses will be present.

Traditional universities such as Cranfield, Oxford Brookes, Bolton, Birmingham City and Derby will be joined by a new online course, offered by the National Motorsport Academy, which is seeing record numbers of students enrolling all the time.

The National Motorsport Academy offers the world’s first online only motorsport engineering degree course, and the first students started in November 2015.

However, as the National Motorsport Academy doesn’t adhere to traditional semesters, students can enrol at any time.

Since the courses went live, the Academy is enrolling between five and 10 students every week, with more than 70 currently signed up.

Visitors to the National Motorsport Academy’s stand, and all of the other universities’ stands, will be able to talk to a selection of academics teaching the courses, as well as students currently taking part.

Many of the universities will also have cars on show, with many displaying cars the students themselves have created.

Students from courses at all these institutions are in high demand, in the UK and around the world.

Graduates have gone on to jobs at F1 teams such as Mercedes, Red Bull and McLaren, while others have landed roles at Jaguar Land Rover, Tata, Team Dynamics, Aston Martin Racing, the British Superbike Championship and more.

Autosport International takes place at Birminham’s NEC from January 14th – 17th.
