Active apprenticeship, internship and graduate programme with Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce has a long-standing relationship with the Sheffield City Region, beginning research programmes with The University of Sheffield in the 1990s.

Today, the company works closely with The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), including at the Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future, opened in 2008.

Rolls-Royce, The University of Sheffield and the AMRC are continuing to work together to develop novel solutions to industry challenges through collaborative research and an active apprenticeship, internship and graduate programme.

Working with the AMRC in the Sheffield City Region puts Rolls Royce at the heart of the UK’s advanced manufacturing research base, with a high skills base and a capable supply chain, helping it to maintain its cutting-edge in competitive industries such as civil and defence aerospace, marine and energy markets.
