A Global Ambition; Teesside University Plays an Innovative and Strategic Role Supporting the Offshore Engineering Industries Locally, Nationally and Globally.

TEESSIDE University is a modern, dynamic, energetic and innovative university, adjacent to the second largest petrochemical complex in Europe and on the doorstep of the UK's North Sea petroleum industry.

Teesside University Open Learning (Engineering) is the world's leading provider of high quality flexible education to the engineering industry.

For 25 years the University has been creating high quality, stand alone, open learning materials at engineering technician level. It is a realistic way to deliver necessary training and education to staff who are unable to attend conventional classroom-based courses. So, if you work on an oil rig in the Caribbean or in pipeline construction in a desert, your professional development need not be interrupted - you can study at your own pace, effectively anywhere.

TUOL(E) leading high engineering " education If you want to underpin and enhance your work experience or vocational qualifications with a solid engineering education, Teesside University Open Learning (Engineering), TUOL(E), offers a portfolio of self-contained open access courses for the oil and gas and post-processing petroleum sectors; from elementary City & Guilds National Certificate courses in process technology to Higher National Certificates and Diplomas in petroleum engineering.

The resulting qualifications are recognised for entry into, and progression within, the industry in any part of the world. The University works very closely with awarding bodies, City & Guilds and Edexcel to innovate and develop new markets in the UK and overseas.

TUOL(E)'s flexible open learning materials are designed to offer mature entrants, and those unable to take time off work, the opportunity to study at their own pace, flexibly, wherever they live and work. This is particularly useful for armed services personnel who can study prior to leaving their current positions or use resettlement and ELC funding to enrol on completion of service, preparatory to their move into the industry.

The petroleum sector supports a wide range of businesses which requires a workforce with a diverse skillset. The University offers courses in chemical, electrical and electronic, instrumentation and control, mechanical, process engineering, and metals and materials HNC and HND courses.

TUOL(E) courses were developed for the UK engineering supply chain in the North-east but have found widespread acceptance all round the world, with some 30,000 students (including many current and service-completed military personnel), from five continents completing courses since 1985.

is the world's provider of Chris Hoggarth, director of TUOL(E) said: "Open learning isn't an isolated activity. It is different from the traditional university experience, but there are still lots of opportunities to communicate with your peers and to gain a different and fulfilling experience. Teesside University Open Learning (Engineering) will continue to be a leading provider for the industry and creates new communities and new learning spaces for engineers and engineering students. "Any UK/EU students registering on a Teesside University Open Learning (Engineering) course on or before July 31, 2012 will remain eligible for grant funding." TUOL(E) students are supported by telephone or email from Teesside University's learning centre office by dedicated subject tutors with a collective expertise and wealth of experience in delivering and assessing open learning engineering courses. …
