Who are we?
“To identify, assess and aid the delivery of new and emerging manufacturing technologies in support of Rolls-Royce’s strategic intent”
Aims of the UTC
The Nottingham UTC (University Technology Centre) in Manufacturing provides:
Concept-proving and demonstration of novel manufacturing technologies
An investment catalyst for UK and EU Research Councils, to invest in Rolls-Royce related manufacturing technologies
Protection of Rolls-Royce intellectual property
Privileged access to academic capability
Mutual access to capabilities and information networks
The Nottingham UTC in Manufacturing was established in 1999 as part of the Rolls-Royce UTC network. Based in the University's Manufacturing Research Division, it offers Rolls-Royce access to advanced world class academic research in manufacturing aimed at specific industry needs. This has yielded innovative solutions, improving both products and manufacturing processes within Rolls-Royce. The partnership also facilitates the growth of engineers in the academic community as they are confronted with "real world" challenges and can therefore better understand industry priorities.
Rolls-Royce PLC is a proven world leader in the manufacture of power systems for land, sea and air. It has established a strong position within civil aerospace, defence, marine and energy industrial sectors, through a strong engineering tradition and the adoption of new technologies.
