Shaping the future of engineering skills development within the North West. The Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC) will be a state-of-the-art facility, equipped to a high quality standard, on the Preston Campus.
Its aim is to exploit the location of the University at the centre of one of the most intense engineering and manufacturing areas in the UK and establish UCLan as a leader in engineering innovation. The Engineering Innovation Centre will create an integrated space for teaching, research and knowledge exchange, resulting in higher education provision in Lancashire which more closely reflects the economic priorities of the business community. The EIC project is already underway with additional investment being made in specialist staff and equipment ready for the full opening of the new facility due in 2018.
