Work begins on the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering

Work is underway on the construction of the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), the UK’s first dedicated ‘faculty on the factory floor’.

Senior figures from Coventry University and Unipart took part in the groundbreaking ceremony at the manufacturing firm’s Beresford Avenue site in Coventry.

It marks the start of a six-month construction project by Lindum Group, which will create a 1700 square metre manufacturing and R&D space for training 40+ undergraduates and postgraduates in the first year.

To mark the ceremony, new Institute Director Dr Carl Perrin also announced a commitment to spend over £2m on robotic automation, forming, joining, analysis and simulation, metrology and product verification technology.

  • Any investment in manufacturing and engineering is good. But it is not a New facility or building that creates the futures engineer's, but those who dedicate themselves to the
    teaching and learning within that said facility, and those dedicated to learn.
