It exists to prove innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile environment in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions. The MTC’s rapid growth has seen the expansion of our campus with the build of three more facilities, including the opening of the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM), the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre (AMTC) and the Aerospace Research Centre (ARC). We now have a total of over 750 talented employees.
Situated within the Knowledge Quarter, in close proximity to LJMU and the University of Liverpool, we are able to work closely alongside both universities, as well as with our other regional stakeholders. The site is also the spearhead for the Digital Manufacturing Accelerator, a project that includes a Rapidly Reconfigurable Factory environment - a physical testbed facility that allows manufacturing companies across the city region to develop and pilot new manufacturing approaches in an industrially robust and secure environment.
The two organisations have a history of apprentice training in science and engineering stretching back more than 70 years.
The centre, which opened in 2019, is managed by training partner MTC Apprenticeships. The MTC’s Advanced Engineering apprenticeship helps learners develop the skills industry needs to deliver the technologies of the future in the high-value manufacturing sector.
