Research and education centres

Our world-class research and education is carried out in centres on the Main campus, Westwood campus and Wellesbourne campus. We are currently building two new research centres.

NAIC

National Automotive Innovation Centre

The National Automotive Innovation Centre will provide a national focus and a critical mass of research capability, combining the expertise nationally and internationally from industry, universities, supply chain companies, SMEs etc. It will be a unique resource, with an environment to foster collaboration, cohesion and cross-fertilisation of knowledge and will provide a platform for greater involvement in EU-wide research programmes. It will enable academic / industry teams to work together in state of the art buildings, with tailored equipment to create and integrate breakthrough technologies with a whole system approach crossing multiple disciplines. It will address the shortage of skilled R&D staff in the automotive supply chain, creating a pipeline of people into companies.

Materials Engineering Centre

Materials Engineering Centre

The Materials Engineering Centre will accommodate further research space for applications-driven 'engineering scale' research on metallic, non-metallic and polymeric materials; their composites and hybrid structures. Further enhancing our research infrastructure, it will open up new collaborative opportunities with our business partners, bringing benefits to the local economy. Funding of £10m is from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The Centre is expected to open by September 2018.
