The Faculty of Engineering joined forces with Rolls Royce, the East Midlands Development Agency and the Midlands Aerospace Alliance to establish the £1.1 million centre, which will explore how the technology can be used to create various parts for the aerospace industry.
A £492,000 grant from EMDA was used to purchase new equipment. Rolls Royce and the University are supporting technical development at the centre. The centre is unique in UK engineering and it is the first time the technology has been used for the aerospace industry outside of the US. It is an important resource for the engineering and manufacturing businesses based in the East Midlands, making them more competitive within the global aerospace market.
