The University of Cambridge Rolls-Royce UTC (University Technology Centre) is one of over 30 Rolls-Royce UTCs located throughout the world that collectively form a unique network for collaborative research between industry and academia.

The UTC conducts research into all aspects of the metallurgy of high temperature alloys; from investigating their response to production processing, understanding the relationships between their microstructure and properties, and developing new alloys.  

The UTC is based at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, the top-performing Science Department in the UK. This provides the UTC researchers with access to the state-of-the-art electron microscopes and equipment required to conduct their research.  

Please see our News and History sections to find out more about our activities, and how the UTC started life.
