JLR signs new agreement with engineering institution

It will ensure that the manufacturer remains a ‘global leader in terms of engineering knowledge and expertise’, says JLR. To do so, JLR and IMechE have outlined a number of plans to help the development of professional engineers at the Gaydon-based manufacturer.

They include giving JLR engineers technical training from IMechE before JLR continues their development.

With this agreement in place JLR hopes it will be able to create better cars for the future by having the best trained staff at its disposal.

The agreement was signed by Bob Joyce, group engineering director at IMechE, he said:

“Continued up-skilling of existing engineers will enable development of new technical skills for future technology innovation and the use of new scientific and technological solutions to improve the performance and efficiency of our cars and manufacturing processes.”

Jaguar is a name synonymous with luxury cars and some of its most recent models, like the Jaguar XK and Jaguar XF , have added to that reputation by receiving critical acclaim and a number of industry awards including What Car? magazine’s ‘Best Executive Car’ for the XF – the fourth time it has scooped the award in as many years.

Jaguar vehicles are available from Perry’s Huddersfield dealership.
