STUDENT / WORK EXPERIENCE
We understand the value of obtaining as much experience as possible to Motorsport & Engineering students, and are proud to have worked with students from a range of Universities from the UK and Europe.
We design & manufacture equipment for Motorsport, prepare and maintain race cars and have our own simulator with experience of putting new vehicles in. Making this a unique opportunity within Motorsports for students to gain experience in all aspect from design & simulation to hands on building & fabrication.
We often have a range of projects from race car builds, equipment builds to weekend help at the race circuits and are happy to take students with all levels of experience.
This could be weekend & evenings or during summer breaks.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you're looking for further experience to add to your CV.
Throughout 2020 we had a student from Belgium completing an internship with us. The initial project brief involved optimizing the set up of one of the sports prototype cars here, part of this project was going to involve the use of AIM tyre temperature monitoring.
When Covid-19 hit and the country was in lock down we could no longer go testing, we had to adjust the project accordingly to ensure he could still complete his degree. With many, many hours of work the vehicle had been set up on our simulator in Rfactor2 and the project remained the same, but in a virtual environment - with incredibly accurate results!
"I have been working at VMEP for four months and it has really been a great experience, i have enjoyed working within the team and working on the cars whilst writing my dissertation. The internship opportunity has therefore been a great experience in further developing my engineering abilities. The company gives a great all round package for internship purposes, it enables you to learn and gain experience around all the sectors in Motorsport."
