Carol Burke CBE, Managing Director at Unipart Manufacturing Group, was granted the title of Doctor of Technology in recognition of her pioneering work.

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 through direct access to real-life manufacturing projects.

“Whilst I’m personally delighted to receive the honorary degree, I do feel the title is more recognition of how successful the Institute and its bold approach to bridging the skills gap has been,” explained Carol, who started her career with GKN.

“Industry and academia coming together hasn’t always been the easiest of marriages and, although there has definitely been soul searching on both sides, we have proven that the model works.”

She continued: “Giving undergraduates the chance to learn in a real-life manufacturing environment fast tracks their careers and equips them with skills that can have an immediate impact on the shop floor.

“The R&D work we have successfully carried out together includes projects as diverse as supporting the development of new fuel rails, as well as creating a new battery manufacturing facility. We feel we have found the blueprint for other companies and universities to follow.”

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering has recently been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize, the highest national Honour awarded in the UK to further and higher education organisations.
