A limited number of places are available for final year undergraduate students to visit the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park at Catcliffe.
There will be free coach travel from main campus for those needing transport, or you can make your own way there. BOOKING IS REQUIRED.
The AMRC has grown from a handful of academic researchers at the University of Sheffield into a multi-million pound partnership between industry and academia, that has become a model for research centres worldwide. You will be shown around several of the AMRC buildings including the Factory of the Future www.amrc.co.uk (advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors), and Nuclear AMRC www.namrc.co.uk (collaboration of academic and industrial partners across the nuclear manufacturing supply chain).
You will also hear about the PhD and Engineering Doctorate Post Graduate Research programme run by the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Machining Science www.sheffield.ac.uk/machining-science-idc
