Celebrating 25 years of partnership with Rolls-Royce
The Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) at Loughborough University represents a pioneering partnership between academia and industry, and was established to develop new and enhanced technologies for gas turbine engines.
Director of Engineering and Technology at Rolls-Royce, Dr Stewart Miller was part of the founding team who supported the launch of the UTC in 1991.
Stewart Miller and his peers were really quite visionary. They saw the benefits that a close working relationship could have for both Rolls-Royce and the University, and supported a set-up that has transformed the way we research, design, test and ultimately deliver cutting-edge new technology.

As we celebrate 25 years of partnership and innovation, we’re looking forward to moving into a new era with the establishment of the new multi-million pound National Centre in Combustion and Aerothermal Technology at Loughborough, set to open in 2019.
