University Technology Centre Multidisciplinary Process Integration

On 11.04.2005 the Rolls-Royce University Centre (UTC) Multidisciplinary Process Integration was officially opened at BTU.

This made BTU the first university in Germany to become a member of the worldwide network of 28 Rolls-Royce UTCs.
About 15 years ago Rolls-Royce made the strategic decision to transfer significant parts of its research and development activities to selected university groups. (siehe Rolls-Royce plc. Webseite)
