Queen's Anniversary Prize
AME is proud to have been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize in recognition of its efforts to future-proof UK industry.
Coventry University and Unipart Manufacturing have a long-standing partnership which developed to see them create the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME). The AME is famous for being the UK's first 'Faculty on the Factory Floor' that brings together the best in academia, industry and R&D in a ‘live’ manufacturing environment.
AME is known as the UK’s ‘first Faculty on the Factory Floor’ as it’s a real-world, working factory that also doubles as an academic base where students can gain real-world experience as they study. Unipart also benefit from being able to bring together the best in academia, industry and research & development in a live manufacturing environment. The AME is committed to arming UK industry with the skills, technologies and competitive advantage required to trade globally, creating jobs across the supply chain and generating real economic value to the UK.
The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME) is a collaboration between Coventry University and Unipart Manufacturing Group.
Part-funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), it brings together the best in academia, industry and R&D in a ‘live’ manufacturing environment.
The courses available through the AME aim to address the domestic skills shortage and the need for more graduate engineers that can enter industry and have an immediate impact.
All students will be provided with training in the Unipart best practice manufacturing methodology and given the opportunity to benefit from working with some of the most talented engineering professionals in the UK.
We want to be among the leaders of the fourth industrial revolution and that’s going to require the combination of business entrepreneurial skills and deep technical know-how. So the creation of the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering institute is going to give us a chance to create industry ready technology and industry ready young men and women.John Neill, Chairman and Group Chief Executive, Unipart
