The University of Nottingham is giving its designing ability to a goal-oriented new aviation focus in Malaysia.
Asia Aerospace City unites University research with the Aerospace Malaysian Innovation Center (AMIC) and MARA Aerospace & Technologies (M-Aerotech), a Malaysian government organization.
Kuala Lumpur-based Asia Aerospace City was authoritatively propelled at this current year’s Farnborough International Airshow, one of the world’s biggest aviation presentations and air shows. The University marked a Memorandum of Understanding with AMIC and MARA.
The accomplices will work together on exploration and innovation, particularly on virtual reality, tooling inventory network advancement, repair and composite assembling.
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus will be helping this imperative AMIC activity through innovative work in the central zones of composite assembling, tooling and assembling robotization.
Teacher Andrew Chan is the scholarly lead on the task from The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC).
Educator Chan, Associate Dean, Engineering, said: “This is a real point of reference in the exploration profile of UNMC and a genuine distinguishment of our examination abilities in aviation design. We are genuinely respected to be endowed with this opportunity by the Malaysian Government and we should be trying our hardest in our commitment towards the aeronautic trade improvements in Malaysia.”
The Memorandum of Understanding was seen by Professor Hai-Sui Yu, Pro-Vice Chancellor, Internationalization, The University Nottingham; Shamsul Kamar Abu Samah, CEO of AMIC & Zulfikri Osman, Executive Director of M-Aerotech; Jean Botti, CTO of Airbus Group & Co-Chairman of AMIC; Richard Parker, Director of Research & Technology of Rolls Royce and Director of AMIC; Salmah Hayati, Deputy Director General of MARA & Chairman of M-Aerotech and Tan Sri Amir Sham, Chairman of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority.
Asia Aerospace City’s Executive Director, En. Zulfikri Osman, said: “Asia Aerospace City is a complete business environment, a collaboration of human capital abilities, phenomenal building administrations backed by a solid advancement society. It transcends the current aviation worth chain suggestion of different infrastructural models around Asia, towards an information based, very prepared administrations capacity business, which serves as the core for the future improvements in aeronautic trade comprehensively.
“That is the reason our speculation concentrates on individuals as well, not simply engineering and base, in situating AAC as “the” aviation center point in Asia.”
AMIC is financed by the Malaysian Government, Airbus, Rolls Royce and Composites Technology Research Malaysia (CTRM).
