The new commercial team is led by Associate Dean for Enterprise, Professor Mike Blundell, and Commercial Director, Mike Dickison, and includes a dedicated group of account managers, support officers, and business development officers focused on the faculty’s commercial services – employability, research, consultancy, and professional learning & development.

The University, which won the 2011 Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year Award,  boasts an academic resource of over 300 engineering & computing experts in areas from vehicle & system dynamics to metrology

Commercial Director Mike Dickison said:

This new team reflects the new synergised approach we are taking for engaging with businesses. We are re-designing the way we work with business to include experts who work for 100% of their time on consultancy and research projects, to adopt a system of professional account management, and to provide solutions that are seamlessly integrated using a multidisciplinary approach.

 


It is a fantastic time to engage with the University as we have just moved into our new Engineering and Computing building, which houses a plethora of new technologies and equipment, including our Mercedes Petronas sub-sonic wind tunnel and our new advanced engineering centre.



The team will be hosting an open day specifically for businesses in spring 2013. More details will be made available at www.coventry.ac.uk/ecbusiness.
