I wanted to go to university to improve my employability and learn more about chemical engineering – a field that I love – before going into the world of work.
I chose Teesside because of its fantastic facilities, welcoming atmosphere and exciting degree course. Living locally, I have always known about Teesside’s excellent campus and growing reputation. Teesside University is a fantastic place to study with something for everyone.
The course I study is fantastic with wide links to industry. There’s a high chance of being employed in the future.
The tutorials are well run and there are plenty of tasks to ensure a sound understanding of each topic. I never feel unprepared for any modules assessments. My favourite modules have been Process Laboratories and Chemical Engineering in Practice. Both include practical tasks as well as the theoretical side.
The campus services are amazing. There is always someone to speak to – the help and support available is incredible. It’s really helpful to have the library open 24 hours a day during exam time as a daily space to concentrate and complete assignments.
Once I graduate I hope to go into petrochemical engineering and, if possible, branch into renewable energy. I believe this is the future. I’m aiming to become a chartered engineer and I think that Teesside University has been the right step to help reach this career goal.
