The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering is an exciting collaboration between two of the leading organisations in academia and industry.
Coventry University is an ambitious, business-facing university whose roots can be traced back to 1843 to the Coventry School of Design.
Its Faculty of Engineering, Environment and Computing has a well-earned global reputation for research and teaching, driven by activity-led learning, business innovation and industry-focused research.
A £55m investment has created a state-of-the-art building for this faculty and provides access to numerous technologies, including a brand new Computerised Numeric Control (CNC) manufacturing centre, engine test tell and dedicated facilities in composite manufacturing, metrology and material and joining.
Coventry University, which is the Sunday Times’ ‘Modern University of the Year’ for the second consecutive year, currently works with some of the biggest names in industry, including Jaguar Land Rover, GE Aviation, Cummins and Intel.
It also prides itself on working with SMEs and helping to support innovative new products to market.
Today, Coventry University employs over 3000 members of staff and boasts an annual turnover for £220m.
