Course description
Teesside is a major international centre for the chemical and process industries and is 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 of which are involved in the design and delivery of our courses to ensure these meet the demands of the workplace.

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.

Research and innovation is carried out within the Technology Futures Institute with areas of focus which include process innovation, engineering and technology management, and sustainability. We generate annual income in excess of £2m for this activity. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 80% of our engineering research activity was judged to be at international level, with the remainder being nationally recognised. A substantial 25% of our international-level research was rated as being internationally excellent.

Petroleum technology is key to the functioning of the modern world, providing both energy and materials for industry. Teesside is a major European centre for the chemical and petroleum processing sector. This programme is designed to provide science and engineering graduates with an opportunity to undertake further study which will give them a specialism in the petroleum industry. You develop your understanding of the nature of petroleum constituents, the chemistry of conversion processes and the engineering issues in the refinery process. You have the opportunity to take part in industry visits and lectures by petroleum specialists as well as carrying out industrially related dissertation projects.

Computer-based simulation and modelling of processes and economics are applied to real problems and explored in detail.
