Welcome from Professor Carl Perrin
When we were in the early stages of planning for AME we knew we had to create something completely different, something that would be a ‘game-changer’ for UK manufacturing.
The plan, initially, was to devise a new approach to developing the graduate engineers of the future as part of our commitment to bridging the skills gap.
However, when discussing the longer-term future of the Institute, we quickly realised that was potential to achieve a far wider remit, a remit that could improve UK manufacturing’s global competitiveness.
This involved developing three main areas…teaching and skills, engagement with business and commercialising Research and Development.
This website provides an insight into the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, what we are trying to achieve and how you can engage with us, whether you are a student, customer, supplier or research partner/funder.
There will be regular blogs, case studies, video and news, keeping you up to date with the latest activities and developments.
Social media will also play a big role and you can follow @ame_uk on Twitter and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
It's time for you to engineer the conversation!

Director of AME
