In a rapidly growing air travel industry, staying competitive means manufacturers must constantly boost productivity, reduce lifecycle costs and minimise environmental impact.

While novel materials and technologies present powerful new possibilities, they bring complex challenges too – challenges tackled head on at the University’s Centre for Aerospace Manufacturing (CAM).
