Enterprise is a key part of the Department's and the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering's activities and we have a strong tradition of working with industry, from small to medium-sized organisations to global brands.
These partnerships strengthen the relevance of our teaching and research. They deliver impact, increasing profitability and sustainability by injecting innovation into products and processes.
Funding is available to support collaboration through which companies can achieve strategic growth (knowledge exchange), our academic expertise and facilities can be hired (Consultancy), we offer postgraduate training for workforce development and we have strong track record of commercialising research (IP).
Sponsored degrees, industry based design projects and the opportunity to set real projects for our students through the Teaching Contract Scheme provide mutually beneficial partnerships with companies.
