Thornton Science Park offers a unique blend of industry and innovation. It is home to a number of Science and Technology organisations. The key aims of the Science Park are to:

  • Establish an internationally-renowned campus, aligning students directly with energy, engineering and technology industries with the creation of the University’s eighth Faculty Science & Engineering.
  • Develop a Centre of Excellence through industry and academic collaboration in the areas of Energy, Science, Engineering, Laser Technologies, Mathematics and Computer Science.   
  • Accommodate innovative pre-start, high growth small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with an appetite for research, innovation providing opportunities for students who are looking to forge careers in science and engineering. 
  • Unlock the region’s economic potential, through attracting and retaining multi-national firms by providing attractive commercial options for partnerships with the University and other stakeholders.

We are passionate about raising awareness of the importance of STEM. Throughout the year we hold a number of workshops and public lectures, and we work closely with a number of local Schools as part of an outreach programme.
