Faculty of Science and Engineering
Based at Thornton Science Park, the Faculty of Science and Engineering is located in a major research and innovation hub for the North West. Formerly the site of the Shell Research and Technology Centre, its takeover by the University has created the opportunity to apply the Centre’s legacy to the continuation of innovation and research in science and engineering in the North West.
Our degrees in engineering and natural sciences are taught on site at Thornton using a strongly interdisciplinary teaching philosophy. We offer a range of stimulating and exciting courses in science, engineering and mathematics.
All our undergraduate degrees emphasise practical skills alongside theoretical knowledge to maximise the opportunities for our graduates. In the engineering subjects, we offer both three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degrees and also four-year integrated Master of Engineering (MEng) degrees. BSc degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences including physics and chemistry take three years.
