Formal teaching for these courses will be delivered at Parkgate Road in Chester from April 2021. The university will still own the Thornton site which will be used for research purposes. The close links that currently exist between the University and the companies based at Thornton will continue.


You will be based at Thornton Science Park, just outside Chester. As both a thriving business hub and academic centre, this innovative setting includes high-specification computer facilities featuring industry-standard engineering, design and development software, Windows and Mac computer suites, a dedicated Games Zone and the on-site Sutton Library.

Careers / Employment

Our courses have a strong focus on employability, merging academic disciplines with practical, technical skills to prepare graduates for a career. You will have the opportunity to build a portfolio of projects to pave your way into industry. We also have our own software development centre – the Informatics Centre – which provides the opportunity for you to gain essential experience.
