Monlau Motul’s Master of Motorsport Engineering opens its 14th edition with high expectations

  • These postgraduate studies, which aim to facilitate the way to reach the elite of motor racing, face a new edition full of challenges.
  • With more than 380 engineers trained since 2010, the new class will feature 28 students from different corners of Spain, as well as from Mexico, Colombia, Portugal and India.
  • Thanks to the support of Motul Ibérica, the three best academic records will be awarded with a scholarship with the aim of prioritizing excellence.

Just over two months after graduating students from their latest edition, the Master of Engineering in Motorsport of Monlau Motul Technical School welcomes a new class of students with the hope of being trained in graduate studies that allow them to reach the elite of motorsport or motorcycling competition with a solidity of knowledge.

There are 28 students who form the promotion of this 14th edition, with an intense and exciting theoretical-practical program that will work over 10 months. The formula, one of the keys to the prestige earned by the Master of Monlau Motul, allows the student to have a theoretical agenda permanently updated, added to the different master classes taught by first-level experts.

The Master of Engineering in Motorsport is a magnificent gateway to engineers who, driven by passion and vocation, want to become specialists in motor racing. And the formative proposal of these studies allows it, as Jaime Serrano, general director of Monlau Motul Technical School explains: “In recent years we are seeing very positive results and a marked line of work to follow. Clearly, the quality of the teaching staff, made up of active professionals, is one of the keys to success. In addition, we can offer the facilities and vehicles of the Monlau Motul teams, which ensure an academic immersion in a totally real and competitive environment”.

The training that students will have to complete integrates 350 teaching hours in the facilities of the center in Montcada and Reixac (Barcelona), where an agenda composed of the following 12 modules will be taught: Introduction to Motorsport; Track engineering; Data acquisition; Vehicle dynamics; Design – CAD/CAE; Engine and transmission; Materials in competition; Ansys; Matlab and Simulink; Sports marketing and management; Sports psychology; and the final project.

Among the stimulating challenges facing the students of the Master is to obtain one of the scholarships offered by Motul Ibérica, which once again recognizes the three best academic records in order to stimulate excellence. Precisely, one of the beneficiaries of this scholarship in 2022, Gerard Gasulla, has joined this year the teaching team as coordinator of the master.

“The main perspective is always to offer continuous improvement and try to offer our maximum level. From the teaching team, our aim is to give maximum support to our students to promote the learning and growth of the group, always keeping the different modules of subjects updated with the best possible material,” says Gasulla.

The 28 members of the 14th class of the Master come, for the most part, from different parts of Spain (seven from Catalonia, four from the Valencian Community, three from Castilla La Mancha, two from Madrid, two from the Balearic Islands, one from Murcia, one from Castilla y León, one from Aragon, one from Andalusia and one from the Basque Country). And along with them, as has been usual in recent years, there is international representation with two engineers from Mexico and three others who come from Colombia, Portugal and India, respectively. A clear symptom of the universal prestige acquired by these studies throughout their editions.

Among the many stimuli offered by the Master, all graduate students will join the job board of Monlau Motul Technical School, as well as the Monlau ALUMNI group on LinkedIn, where multiple national and international job offers arrive annually. One of the ways to achieve employment for students that year after year is translated into many success stories.

In this sense, it is common to see dozens of alumni of different promotions of the Master work in the main motor competitions in the international arena, such as MotoGP, Formula 1″ and the FIA WRC.

Already started the 14th edition, all those engineers interested in studying the Master of Engineering in Motorsport can now take the first step to get a place for the 2024 edition. Through the following link you can access the selection and registration process. Applicants must be graduates or graduates in Technical Engineering or Higher, or professionals in the sector of competition with a proven experience.
