Our Services & Expertise

Our expertise covers a broad range of industrial applications and digital engineering technologies and we are able to provide a range of valuable services to manufacturers. We can also combine our expertise as a leading group in international research in automotive, manufacturing and maintenance engineering and ultra low carbon vehicle technology.

By providing problem-solving solutions to manufacturers of all capabilities, offering training or advice, or working in partnership-based research, AMAP's basic working principle is to improve or develop the current state of a company or individual.Our services can be applied equally to a company of 100 or less employees, to major corporations, or even to individuals looking to up-skill through education and professional development.

AMAP Pillars Model

The University of Sunderland has the research capability supported by AMAP, with their network of industrial contacts. AMAP is trusted and respected by suppliers because of its neutral position. Our practice understands industry and we appreciate the challenge of the competitiveness within the supply chain. We are here to support businesses, large and small, by sharing contacts and best practice, providing training and upskilling of the workforce, plus carrying out research and then sharing the findings.

The benefits are clear - shared learning about skills, quality, design, materials manufacturing and maintenance techniques help companies to be more efficient, which means more profit and better products, delivered on time throughout the chain. AMAP’s role is to build networks and engage companies, drawing on support such as Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), access to research, consultancy, or industrial placements for students. The benefit of this direct link to businesses for AMAP and ultimately the University of Sunderland is that it allows the Faculty to develop programmes and curriculum based on real-world feedback and links with industry.
