What is MADE Cymru?

MADE Cymru is a suite of three EU-funded projects delivered by a team of industry experts at University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD).

From remote learning opportunities to collaborative research and development, MADE Cymru is here to help equip manufacturers in Wales with everything they need to take full advantage of Industry 4.0 technologies and Innovation Management to make a positive economic impact.



Our virtual learning environment means you can attend lectures from anywhere, with real-time communication and collaboration taking place online between course participants. You won’t need to wait until the programme is complete to apply the skills you’ve learned straight away. You can choose bite-sized modules in Upskilling for Industry 4.0 or Innovation Management or a full MSc – all certified by University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Our students’ first projects alone are estimated to be worth over £1m to their businesses

By upskilling employees via one of our courses or by working with our Research team on an R&D project, individuals will be able to discover knowledge, technologies and the methods that can transform the way they work on a day to day basis.

Students and businesses have access to extensive online resources worth over £800,000 including books, journals and industry specific databases. Plus there’s over £4m worth of cutting-edge advanced manufacturing equipment that companies can benefit from

With access to state-of-the-art facilities, participants have the rare opportunity to access and learn about advanced technologies before they risk any personal investment in machinery or processes.

As well as having access to these advanced technologies, participating companies will be guided by our expert team through the entire R&D process to positively impact your bottom line.

The value of our first collaborative R&D projects already exceeds £150,000, with the predicted impact to the companies worth over £5m

All our academics and researchers have solid industry experience, evident in both teaching and collaborative projects. We’ll work with you to explore how advanced technologies, materials, tools and techniques could optimise your products and increase efficiencies in your manufacturing processes.

The MADE Cymru team has over 150 years of manufacturing industry experience between them
