Teesside University Memorandum of Understanding

Teesside University and Sofia Offshore Wind Farm have signed an agreement setting out how we will work together to build local skills and capabilities to equip students for careers in the rapidly growing offshore wind sector.

Through a structured partnership, the university will help Sofia ensure that necessary skills will be available throughout the wind farm’s lifetime and that where feasible that those skills will be developed locally. The two organisations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which outlines potential opportunities for collaboration including curriculum development, delivering offshore wind STEM-related master classes, offering student mentoring and internships, sponsoring directed study projects and taking part in university careers fairs and events.
