Thornton Science Park

Our Faculty of Science and Engineering is based at Thornton Science Park just outside Chester. Formerly the site of the Shell Technology, Exploration and Research Centre, the campus continues the legacy of innovation in science and engineering in the North West.

The 66-acre site features purpose-built laboratories and industrial facilities to provide the best practical experience and learning opportunities. There are up-to-date computer facilities featuring fully licensed engineering, design and development software, Windows and Mac computer suites, a dedicated Games Zone and the on-site Sutton library.

Outside of lectures and practical sessions, you can make use of a variety of recreational spaces including a coffee bar and restaurant, fitness centre and all-weather pitch. A free shuttle bus is provided to transport students to and from Parkgate Road Campus, Chester.

Thornton is a working science park with a number of science and technology-based companies located on site, so students have the opportunity to gain a first-hand insight into working in a professional and career-focused environment.
