BEng (Hons) Architectural Environment Engineering (2+2/4+0)  

Course outline

This course aims to develop an understanding of the principles and techniques of architectural environment engineering science and the ability to apply these principles and methods for sustainable development of the built environment. The course involves the use of modern and environment friendly technologies to create comfortable and efficient indoor environments. Engineers in this field apply their skills to design energy efficient buildings incorporating renewable energy, green architecture, ventilation, lighting, acoustics and electrical/control systems.

Course structure

The degree is offered as "2+2" or "4+0" degree. For "2+2", the first two years are delivered in China at the University of Nottingham, Ningbo, and the second two years at the University of Nottingham, UK; for "4+0", all four years are delivered in China at the University of Nottingham Ningbo.

Designed by highly-experienced staff at the Univsity’s Centre for English Language Education, this programme prepares students fully for their degree courses. Common modules of study across all degrees include:

written and oral communication and study skills
sciences such as physics and chemistry maths for engineering and computer science
engineering communication and IT skills. This module will have a hands-on approach to ensure competency in: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, the module involves the use of a software environment (eg MATLAB) to help solve engineering and mathematical problems related concepts and methods studied during the year while introducing programming technical material in drawing, schematic and graphical format.
Students work in small groups to develop their academic English language skills.
