A statement on the passing of Professor Lord Bhattacharyya

Ian Constance, Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Propulsion Centre:

“It is with great sadness that I write this having been informed of Professor Lord Bhattacharyya’s passing.  

Lord Bhattacharyya was the driving force behind the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and was a true inspiration and mentor to many engineers like myself.

He was respected by leaders in government, academia and industry. He created UK jobs and paved the way for how academic institutions should collaborate with industry and he will be greatly missed.

We remain committed to the exceptional research and development projects currently ongoing between the Advanced Propulsion Centre and WMG that will benefit the future of the automotive industry in the UK and the rest of the world.

My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.”
