The new AMRC Design & Prototyping Group provides engineering design and prototyping expertise to help UK manufacturers develop innovative high-value products.
The AMRC Design & Prototyping Group was created in 2012 to address a severe shortage of exceptional engineering designers. The UK has a rich heritage of industrial design, but top-tier manufacturers and suppliers alike are struggling to secure the design expertise they need to bring new products and components to market.
In high-value manufacturing sectors such as aerospace, energy, motorsport and medical technology, designers need to work closely with their R&D, prototyping and testing centres if they are to perfect their designs through a series of intense product development cycles.
By integrating a world-class design team with the manufacturing and research expertise of its established groups, the AMRC is creating a manufacturing design resource capability far beyond anything previously available in the UK.
The AMRC Design & Prototyping Group is:
- Developing a UK centre of excellence in engineering design and prototyping.
- Building a multi-disciplinary team of exceptional design engineers.
- Ready to produce anything from basic designs through to full-scale pre-production prototypes.
- Drawing on the expertise of the AMRC group to exploit state-of-the-art visualisation and rapid prototyping equipment.
From autumn 2013, the Design & Prototyping Group will be based in the new AMRC Design Prototype and Testing Centre, a major expansion of our original facility funded by ERDF and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. We are continuing to recruit experienced design engineers throughout 2013 – see the AMRC careers page or contact us to find out more.
