Infiniti’s global search for the best up-and-coming student engineering talent begins its third year with the launch of the 2016 Infiniti Engineering Academy. Students from all over the world have the chance to earn the career opportunity of a lifetime working at Infiniti Motor Company and the Renault Sport Formula One Team.Infiniti’s new Technical Partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One Team includes, as a crucial component, this unique automotive-to-Formula One training program for brilliant young engineers.

“Year on year, we continue to strive to improve the academy, and now, with our new and deep-reaching Technical Partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One Team, we can offer six engineers a truly technically rich, multi-discipline engineering placement,” said Tommaso Volpe, Global Director, Infiniti Motorsport.

“Not only will they spend six months at the Infiniti Technical Center for Europe (Cranfield, UK), they will also experience the facilities at the Renault Sport Formula One Team base in Enstone, Oxfordshire.

Combining opportunities to work at both companies means our 2016 Infiniti Engineering Academy winners are set to craft their careers from the outset with an incredible 12 months at the cutting-edge of big business automotive and motorsport engineering,” added Volpe.

Having launched the careers of previous winners William Priest and Eric LaRoche, the academy is the technical recruitment initiative in Formula One. This year, the following global Infiniti regions are participating: China, Europe (including Russia), Canada, Mexico and Asia & Oceania, with the Middle East and U.S. to be confirmed at a later date.

“We are offering a mix of academic and professional experience across such disciplines as Electronics, Aerodynamics, Mechanical Design and Composite Design,” explained Bob Bell, Renault Sport F1 Chief Technical Officer. “The academy offers a compelling opportunity for up-and-coming engineers to experience the fundamentals of automotive and motorsport engineering.”

With the added depth of knowledge transfer, not least in Infiniti’s performance hybrid expertise being used for joint ERS development in Viry-Châtillon, France, and enhanced scope for collaboration that Infiniti’s Technical Partnership brings to the academy, 2016 will open up a wide range of experiences and opportunities to the six winners.
