“With an established client base that includes Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley, Perkins, Cummins, Ricardo, Caterpillar, and Ford, it made sense for AEI to base our UK operations in the Midlands. We're looking to build careers in the UK as we expand our consulting engineering practice here.”
AEI's UK office is located in the Midlands, one of the best networked regions of the United Kingdom. Centrally located in Leicestershire, we're connected to four national motorways, less than 30 minutes from an international airport, and just over an hour from London by train.
The Midlands has earned its tremendous reputation for industriousness, diversity, and innovation in such areas as engineering, manufacturing, food and drink, and financial services. Here DNA genetic fingerprinting was discovered, the first jet engine was perfected, and the world's first hydrogen-powered motorcycle was developed. The Midlands is noted for higher education, with three distinguished universities - Leicester, De Montfort and Loughborough - featuring centers of research excellence in such sectors as space science, bio-medical science, engineering, and design industries.
This is a region where timeless country villages really do exist, where equivalent housing is half the cost of London, and is continually ranked high among Britain's best areas for families. Stunning countryside is conveniently nearby for golf, horse riding, cycling, sailing, and hiking. Given our focus, motor enthusiasts have access to the Silverstone, Mallory Park, and Donington Park circuits. Live entertainment abounds at the Curve theatre, De Montfort Hall, O2 Academy Leicester, and Kilworth House Theatre - or perhaps Tigers rugby at Welford Road.
