You will be based at Thornton Science Park, just outside Chester. At the University’s specialist science and engineering campus, students, academic researchers and on-site commercial enterprises work alongside each other and continue the legacy of innovation in the North West. The laboratories are equipped to a high level with research-quality instrumentation.

Careers / Employment

Our students can take a four-week placement at the end of their first year, experience a six-week work-based learning placement during the second year, and conduct an extended project in the third year. These may all be in collaboration with an industry partner, helping to build your experience and strengthen your CV.
