UNC Charlotte Motorsports Tours

The UNC Charlotte general campus tour and College of Engineering information session will give you a good broad look at the UNC Charlotte campus and information on mechanical engineering classes you will be taking and student life. For a more in-depth tour and information about the UNC Charlotte Motorsports Engineering program, we have a UNC Charlotte Motorsports alumni, and current NASCAR Engine Engineer for Hendrick Motorsports that will meet and talk with you. He has taken the classes and works full time in the racing industry, so he has some good insight and information to give. See below for the available dates and times he gives tours. Email reservations for a tour are required at least a week in advance. Email Dr. Uddin below and he will coordinate the tours. If you are not able to make these dates and/or times, please request a tour through the Mechanical Engineering department. They will cover all aspects of the Mechanical Engineering department, including motorsports.

When looking on the UNC Charlotte campus map, the Motorsports Engineering program is located in the Alan Kulwicki Lab (building 62 on map) and the Motorsports Research Building (building 75 on map).
