ENGINEER YOUR CAREER 

The FIA has produced a brochure, ‘Engineer Your Career – A World of Opportunity in Motor Sport’, specifically aimed at encouraging more girls to take up engineering as a career. The brochure explains the possible careers open to students of engineering, including in mechanical, aerospace, civil and electrical engineering, with most featuring skills that can be applied to a motor sport environment.

The brochure concludes by offering tips for future progress, specialist programmes devoted to advancing the involvement of young engineers in motor sport, sources of further advice and details of graduate schemes.

The brochure is available in French, English and Spanish (summer 2018).
 

F1 IN SCHOOLS

F1 in Schools is a programme targeting 40 countries and 20 million students around the world.

The programme was launched in 1999 and since then has enjoyed a growth in popularity within the engineering student world. The contest sees teams of six students making a business plan, finding sponsors and designing with CAD and
CAM software, a miniature Formula One car.

An FIA Women in Motorsport award has been attributed to a winning team since 2015, with the final objective to offer internship opportunities amongst teams.
