Working with business
Jaguar Land Rover
Loughborough has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with both Jaguar and Land Rover. A number of research groups in different discipline areas have pioneered new areas in product development and business processes. Today the University is established as a principal research partner of Jaguar in a number of technology areas.
The University also has a role in the training and development of JLR engineers. In a recent development JLR has inaugurated the Technical Accreditation Scheme in which Loughborough participates with Cranfield, Coventry and Warwick Universities. JLR engineers take modules at the different Universities according to their professional needs with the option of proceeding to an MSc.
Examples of recent research projects with JLR include
This project, in which Loughborough worked with JLR and other University partners was designed to explore and demonstrate modelling methods for modern gasoline combustion concepts.
