Cutting edge smart labs open at Teesside University


State of the art laboratories to provide experience of real-world applications of digital technology in engineering have been opened at Teesside University.

The Smart Energy Laboratory and Digital Process Laboratory in the University’s School of Computing, Engineering & Digital Technologies are part of its long-running partnership with Siemens.

They have been set up to introduce students to leading edge equipment and software and make them aware of how the technology can be applied in industry settings.

“With these laboratories we want to show how digital technology, and specifically the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, can be applied across different design and production processes, giving students real-world experience to ensure that they are ready for jobs in industry when they graduate from Teesside University,’ explained Ross Caddens, Director of Business Development at Siemens Digital Industries Software, and a Visiting Professor of Cyber-Physical Design at Teesside University.

“We want to create a new generation of skilled engineers to ensure that they are aware of the possibilities new technology can bring within their profession.”

The labs will be available for all engineering students from undergraduates to those studying doctorates.

“Whether you’re a civil engineer or a chemical engineer, the use of digital technology is ubiquitous,” added Professor David Hughes, Associate Dean (Research and Innovation) in the School of Computing, Engineering & Digital Technologies.

“By creating an awareness of the opportunities digital technology can bring, we can ensure that our graduates can make a real impact in the workplace.”
