    I would like to have some suggestions for a Masters / Graduate Degree in Motorsports or Aerospace Engineering.

    I have completed 3 years of Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's Degree

    I’ll be honest, I have never heard of a Masters in Motorsports...based on that I would recommend an Aerospace Engineering program. Do you have any programs in mind? Typically, people ask about specific programs they are interested in.

    I was looking at https://www.brookes.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/motorsport-engineering-msc/ but they are beyond my budget

    Yes, Aerospace Engineering program is good but with very good scholarship or part-time work earning options to cover my cost.

    I also got interested in https://graduate.carleton.ca/cu-programs/aerospace-engineering-masters/ but they are asking 4 years Bachelor's Degree, mine is only 3 years, so I do not have the requirement met

    I know SLU is an expensive private Catholic college and very well renowned although expensive at $1190 a credit:

    Did you get your three year engineering degree at Devry? If you earned it in three years and your transcript shows 120 semester hours, you should be fine! I simply can't imagine admissions giving you a problem but call and ask. The Univ of Alabama tuition was very appealing at $420 a credit hour and has a Bachelors entry.

    I looked up Master's in Motorsports Engineering and got 15 results on the first site. Some are pretty far from the tree, others direct hits. All Brit. schools it appears.

    UNCC Charlotte, deep in the heart of NASCAR territory offers plenty of Motorsports degrees. I believe a Ph.D in this field is possible there. https://motorsports.uncc.edu/

    I'd never heard of it either. So I looked it up.

    This article mentions several other American schools that offer grad Motorsports degrees - IUPUI, U of Colorado etc. Go for it, Smartcard! The Penske organization and its competitors are looking for a lot of good people! :)

    It depends on what your career goals are>

    I have spent my entire career in aerospace industry.

    Have you considered a masters in electrical/electronic engineering.

    That would be of use in both aerospace and in the auto industry (look at the expansion of electronics in autos).

    Not really, I would like to directly get in to Motorsports or Aerospace as I do not have much funds for studies

    Capitol Technology University was mentioned in a previous thread. Although some interesting areas probably not your area of interest. I did see programs in Aviation research:

    https://www.captechu.edu/online

    Tuition:
    Masters $630 sh
    Doctorate $933 sh

    Is your focus R&D, management, academics, personal interest?

    This masters looks very appealing especially with in-state tuition! Thanks to Tekman.
