I’d like my story to inspire others to believe that you can achieve anything with the right support, attitude and commitment. It’s much easier to imagine yourself somewhere when you can see someone like you already there – if I can do it, anyone can.” The MTC was founded by the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and TWI Ltd, with industrial members including some of the UK’s major global manufacturers.
