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.


All Engineering courses are 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.


Students benefit from a range of technical resources, including a largescale chemical engineering pilot plant, mechanical workshops, materials preparation and testing laboratories, modern chemistry and biotechnology laboratories and access to professional modelling software. You will also have access to the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s supercomputing cluster.
