Major capital projects

We have a long history of delivering major projects in collaboration with industry and government. Having grown significantly since we were founded in 1980, by Professor Lord Bhattacharyya, with 13 centres and institutes we are now building three new research centres which will contribute to the future of UK manufacturing and engineering.


Wellesbourne Campus - Bleasdale Building

Currently under refurbishment to accommodate our Special Vehicle Projects Team. This new facility for vehicle build and test will have two state of the art workshops for build/test and styling area. There will also be a purpose built fitting/modification space, and onsite office with access to CAD.

Degree Apprenticeship Centre

Degree Apprenticeship Centre

A new Degree Apprenticeship Centre, funded by a £10m allocation from the Government’s Local Growth Fund through Coventry & Warwickshire LEP (subject to due diligence), will create a dedicated space designed to support these new types of degree. The WMG Degree Apprenticeship Centre will focus on multidisciplinary engineering-related degree apprenticeships, but also support other subjects such as digital, health and management. Students who are learning through work at companies will come to campus for academic study to complement their practical experience.
