Consultancy and research


Cummins is an international company that manufactures, supplies and services engines and related technologies, including fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission control and electrical power generation systems.

Barry Moore, a Teesside University BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering graduate, is working with Cummins at its Darlington site to improve its engine painting processes as part of a shorter knowledge transfer partnership (sKTP). He is also completing his PhD at Teesside University on the same subject, with ongoing support from Cummins.

The company expects to benefit from the project in a number of ways – cost and time savings, improved processes and ultimately better customer service.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs and sKTPs) are a business-University collaboration. They aim at improving productivity and performance through a strategic project. The company gets access to academic skills and expertise, along with a graduate recruited specially to work on the project.
