Teesside is a major international centre for the chemical and process industries and home to some of the most advanced pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies in the world. The region also hosts major international engineering design and construction industries. We enjoy close links with engineering industries on Teesside - many are involved in designing and delivering our programmes. This ensures that your chosen programme will provide you with the knowledge and skills sought by employers.
You study in the Stephenson building, a purpose-built, high-quality learning environment. Alongside seminar rooms and a 200-seat lecture theatre there are specialist engineering laboratories. These include designated areas for the built environment, computer-aided design and manufacture, control systems, electrotechnology and telecommunications. Specialist pilot plant facilities for chemical and mechanical engineering are close by in the Orion building.
A new nanotechnology facility allows typical semiconductor processes such as photolithography, and material deposition and etching techniques to be carried out in a controlled environment. Other microfabrication systems are integrated into the facility, together with atomic force microscopy equipment.
Engineering research by staff in the School of Science and Engineering has been highly commended with the national Research Excellence Framework 2014, rating 59% of our research as world-leading and internationally excellent, and 90% as world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of impact.
