Welcome from Professor Carl Perrin, Director of AME
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. It's time for you to engineer the conversation!
