The Centre for Smart Manufacturing provides a regional hub for applied research to support the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing sector.
Seven dedicated labs hosted at the college’s Cambridge and Doon campuses will support the development of new products and processes across a wide range of areas, including:
- Advanced Sensors
- Electronic Systems
- Light Manufacturing Production and Assembly
- Prototype Production
- 3D Printing
The Centre for Smart Manufacturing focuses on applied research for SMEs with limited resources for in-house research and development. Students engaged in research projects have the opportunity to work with industry partners as they apply their skills and knowledge to real-world challenges.
