Celebrating over 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.
Since the launch, the UTC at Loughborough has experienced outstanding growth and now boasts a wealth of cutting edge laboratories and test facilities, with an annual research income in excess of £2.5 million.
Led by Professor Jon Carrotte, the UTC’s team of researchers have over 90 years of combined experience. The team have supervised over 50 PhD candidates through to completion, published 200 journal papers, over 260 conference papers and received the award of numerous worldwide patents.
