AME wins prestigious honour

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), a joint collaboration between Coventry University and Unipart Manufacturing, has been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize. Celebrating excellence, innovation and public benefit in work carried out by colleges and universities, the accolade is the highest national Honour awarded in UK further and higher education, and is only granted by Her Majesty the Queen every two years.

AME – self-described as the UK’s first ‘Faculty on the Factory Floor’ – is located at Unipart’s site in Coventry, where it is committed to developing industry-ready graduates by giving them direct access to real-life engineering projects. Based in a purpose-built 1700 sq m hub, over 200 students have completed or are working towards their degrees, utilising the latest robotics, automation and welding technology.
