The MRes students benefit from attending a UK industrial tour over a number of days during the Summer, visiting a number of industries within the ultra precision community. These include Renishaw, MSOLV, Oxford Instruments, Michell Instruments, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and many more. The centre also takes recommendations from the students of places they wish to visit.
The tour allows the students to make connections with industry, and to see first hand the manufacturing processes that are invaluable to the ultra precision technology. The tour also allows industrialists to meet the MRes students who they might wish to collaborate with in the form of the student projects and PhD studies.
