About

History

Originally founded as Constantine College, the institution was officially opened by the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII, on 2 July 1930. The college became a polytechnic in 1969; and in 1992, the Privy Council gave approval to 14 higher education institutions, including Teesside, to become new universities.

Education

Through education enriched by research, innovation, and engagement with business and the professions, we transform lives and economies.

Research

Here at Teesside University our focus is on externally facing research that makes a real, practical difference to the lives of people and the success of businesses and economies.

We work with a range of organisations from national governments to small businesses, and from multinational companies to NGOs and charities.

Our research addresses problems that range from complex, multi and inter-disciplinary 'Grand Challenges' focussed on some of the biggest issues of our time, through to highly focussed discipline based research within our Academic Schools and their Departments.
