Honorary degree

One of the West Midlands’ leading female industrialists has been awarded an honorary degree by Coventry University.

Carol Burke CBE, managing director at Unipart Manufacturing Group, was granted the title of ‘Doctor of Technology’ in recognition of her pioneering work in setting up the Institute of Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering (AME) over five years ago. The experienced engineer was one of the driving forces behind the UK’s first ‘Faculty on the Factory Floor’, helping support a new approach to developing the graduates of the future by making them more industry-ready.
