Canterbury Christ Church University STEM Building

Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU) has launched its STEM building, which houses the new Kent and Medway Engineering, Design, Growth and Enterprise (EDGE) Hub.

CCCU recently opened this major new £65 million facility for Science, Technology, Health, Engineering and Medicine, part of our partnership vision to transform local/regional STEM education by increasing diversity and the retention of highly skilled graduates in Kent and Medway.

As well as a centre for industry collaboration and education that directly responds to employers’ needs, it will also provide first-class facilities for current and future generations of students, supporting them into a wide range of important careers from healthcare and medicine to life sciences, technology and engineering.

The University received funding from the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP), former Higher Education Funding Council for England, and Garfield Weston Foundation for this major science, health and engineering facility in Canterbury.

The EDGE Hub at Canterbury Christ Church University is keen to reach out to see if any companies are interested in seeking support in obtaining skilled people in the STEM sciences, or advice about the deployment of Industry 5.0 within their firm.

Industry 5.0 refers to people working alongside robots and smart machines. It’s about robots helping humans work better and faster by leveraging advanced technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and big data), the EDGE Hub might be able to help.
