Aerodynamics Career Accelerator Program

Learn the skills to work as an F1 Aerodynamicist
Live 6-week course

Learn the real-world skills needed to jumpstart your career in motorsport engineering!

Our Aerodynamics Career Accelerator Program (Aero CAP) will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of principles, theories, and applications of aerodynamics in the context of Formula 1 racing. 

Learn from a former F1 Aerodynamicist and develop your problem-solving and collaboration skills as well as technical know-how: creating aerodynamic designs based on requirements, running them in CFD, doing post-processing of the CFD results, and iterating designs to improve aero performance.

Our course goes beyond the conventional, utilising CATIA 3DX and Bramble CFD to teach you skills that will help you stand out in the competitive world of motorsport aerodynamics! 


LIVE courses meet online
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 
6 – 8pm European Time (GMT+1)
