I don't know if I can continue this thread, but indeed that's exactly the question I'm asking to myself : Oxford or Cranfield ? They offer similar programs.
I am currently in 2nd year of BSc in mechanical engineering in Switzerland, will (hopefully) graduate next year, and I would like to do a Master of Sciences in the UK. I looked on Oxford's offers and their MSc Motorsport engineering looks to be spot on with what I want to do. I had a quite look at Cranfield and it looks also like a good program !
Rally is what interests me the most. I've done mechanic on cars in a garage during 4-5 years got my paper, and I also know how to use my head (at least I think I do
). So I don't want to find a job where I'm sitting in front of a computer the whole day or in the garage the whole time. Going out for testing, then back in the lab to work on parts, moving, that's the best kind of job for me. This is why I would be interested to be in a R&D or testing team, something like that. Don't know if its exactly like this because I had only an outside eye on this but it looks as it is what I'm looking for. They have to test the parts, find which ones works good, try to improve them, and so on. Small team would be better, so you feel more involved !
So guys, any experience to share ? I heard that its common use to have a company which pays your master fees. I cannot see how you can achieve to find a job in a racing team even before the master program but ok.
Thank you in advance guys for the advices because I'm sure there are people who graduated from these schools, and I'm sure this will also help deedo.
Sorry also for my English, but its not my native language !
