About the business

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) was established in 2010 as an independent Research & Technology Organisation (RTO) with the objective of bridging the gap between academia and industry – often referred to as ‘the valley of death’. It represents one of the largest public sector investments in UK manufacturing and, after four years of planning and a 16 month build, the facility opened at Ansty Park in Coventry at the end of 2011. In December 2011, there were 16 industrial members, 44 staff and just a few key pieces of equipment in the ‘workshop’. Over the following 10+ years the MTC’s rapid growth has seen the expansion of our campus with the construction of three more facilities, including the opening of the Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre and the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing.  Our role has also increased to cover not only R&D but also Training, Advanced Manufacturing Management and Factory Design.  We now have over 800 talented employees working with us. During this time we have helped hundreds of companies across a range of industries and over 100 of them have become members of the MTC.

Manufacturing

Engineering

As a minimum, degree in Computer Science, Simulation, Robotics & Automation, a relevant Engineering degree or similar discipline, or equivalent in terms of either other qualifications and/or experience. At the lower end of the advertised pay range, you will have 2-3 years creating discrete event simulations alongside CAD experience – this means you will have a clear understanding of simulation, its applications and benefits. An awareness of agent-based simulations is also preferable. Some experience of programming/coding would be desirable, as would an understanding and definition of manufacturing operations/processes and Lean manufacturing. An active interest in new innovations in the simulation, robotics, and automation fields, and kept abreast of developments through literature, events and social media. Driver’s license, mandatory.
