These awards are available to local students applying to an engineering-related undergraduate course at Teesside University.

Ken Home is an honorary graduate of Teesside University – he was awarded a Doctorate in Business Administration in 2013. He attended Victoria Road School and, while an apprentice draftsman with Dorman Long, he studied at Constantine College - which later became Teesside University. He is founder of K Home International Ltd – a multidiscipline engineering design service, celebrating 40 years of successfully delivering engineering projects throughout the world.

In 2014 Dr Ken Home made a significant donation to the University’s development fund to support scholarships. A Dr Ken Home Scholarship is for students enrolling on an undergraduate course in the School of Science, Engineering & Design.
