What we do
For over 30 years, Materials Engineering at Swansea University has worked with Rolls-Royce. Research taking place here has led directly to component design.
Our Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Materials is a key member of the Materials Partnership with the Universities of Birmingham and Cambridge.
UTCs have been established by Rolls-Royce across the world covering diverse engine technology requirements.
The mission of this Partnership is to harness key academic expertise to address front-line materials requirements for Rolls-Royce gas turbine engines. This fundamental materials research is necessary to improve the efficiency and environmental sustainability of gas turbine engines.
