Dudley Advance, the Dudley College of Technology's new Manufacturing and Engineering Centre, is home to the Enterprise and Innovation Zone. Set up through consultation from local employers, this new business lounge of Dudley Advance is focused on supporting engineering and manufacturing businesses in the area.

The new facility offers employers and students access to the latest equipment (including a rapid prototyping lab) as well as space for project and design work. By encouraging employers to make use of these facilities the college provides students with opportunities for industry experience and awareness.
