Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME)

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME) is proud to be part of the Centre for Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Research at Coventry University. AME is supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England's Catalyst Fund, and is a collaboration between Coventry University and Unipart Manufacturing Group. 

AME has built a bespoke ‘Faculty on the Factory Floor’ at Unipart’s manufacturing site in the heart of Coventry, with a commitment to delivering world-class Manufacturing and Materials Engineering research. We’ve brought together the best in academia, industry and research & development in a live manufacturing environment, with the aim of:

  • Developing industry-ready, world class engineering graduates
  • Accelerating next generation powertrain related technologies for automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, rail and renewables
  • Disseminating research and new technologies for the benefit of Unipart, its suppliers and wider industry
  • Driving economic growth by making UK engineering and manufacturing globally competitive

This forms the focal point of activity and will house state-of-the-art robotic automation, forming, joining, analysis and simulation, metrology and product verification technology. Furthermore, our unique manufacturing courses have been shaped by some of the leading minds in academia and industry, with the focus on activity-led, ‘live project’ learning.

Research within the Centre for Manufacturing and Materials Engineering deals with a wide range of expertise; Functional Materials, Metrology, Welding & Joining, Magnetohydrodynamics and electromagnetic processing of materials (MHD), Materials, Mechanics and Measurement, Collaborative and Sustainable Manufacturing, and Materials Engineering and Structural Integrity.

Research projects across the Centre for Manufacturing and Materials Engineering research and AME are often in close-collaboration. The commitment and drive of our faculty research centre highlights the investment and growth taking place at Coventry University. We hope you’ll join us on our journey.
