First-class facilities

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.

Teesside University is embarking on a multimillion pound project to expand, upgrade and refurbish its science and engineering laboratories. The project, due to be completed in summer 2015, provides a host of new technical facilities and equipment which you can benefit from throughout your studies.
