Join us at The Kitchen Sessions, our popular live lecture series brought to you by our experts. Watch previous lectures, find out what we’ve got coming up and book your place.

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 Parkgate Road Campus, Chester. At Chester, students, academic researchers and commercial enterprises work alongside each other to continue the legacy of innovation in the North West. Our laboratories are equipped to a high level with research-quality instrumentation.


Students benefit from a range of technical resources, including a largescale chemical engineering pilot plant, mechanical workshops, materials preparation and testing laboratories, state-of-the-art Electronic & Electrical Engineering hardware and software labs, modern chemistry and biotechnology laboratories, and access to a wide array of professional modelling software, including leading packages National Instruments LABVIEW, MULTISIM and Mathworks MATLAB. You will also have access to the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s supercomputing cluster.
