"Computer Science - University of Teesside"

Teesside is an up and coming university. When I started my course (Computer Science), in 1995, the facilities were basic. But, since the creation of the new library building, the refurbishment of the student centre, etc., it has come on a long way. Plans for the future include rebuilding one of the comp. sci. buildings, and the school of health building - so this shows they are looking to the future.

The computing department is the flagship department of the university, and enjoys a good reputation in the computing industry for turning out good quality graduates. (It was rated as excellent by the Higher Education Funding Council).

For virtual reality, they are one of the leading universities in the country, after a multi-million pound installation.

The town is nice, although you have to be security conscious at all times, and it could be a bit busy at night time. It is only a few minutes walk away (the uni is on the edge of the town centre), so you can reach pubs, nightclubs, etc. within seconds of leaving the university building.

Middlesbrough is about 10 miles north of the North Yorkshire Moors, and is only 90 minutes drive away from the Lake District (down the A66).

The future for Teesside is bright, there is more work to do, as there is anywhere. But they are addressing those issues, as rapidly as they occur, and are keen to push Teesside to the forefront of higher education.
