This unique and highly innovative Masters degree programme gives a taste of what it is like to run your own business and will appeal equally to aspiring entrepreneurs and those seeking leadership positions within larger organisations.

Much of the learning takes place outside the classroom so that students can see first-hand how business works in China and can develop an understanding of how to engage effectively with international partners and clients.

You will gain hands on experience by formulating and developing a business idea into a real business plan, while the Entrepreneurial Project will provide the opportunity to be embedded in a company where you can develop your innovative skills. These activities will engage you face-to-face with entrepreneurs in practice and expose you to real world business problem solving.

BIM is a growing technology used in the building industry worldwide. It uses digital techniques to create and use intelligent 3D models to communicate building project decisions. GIS is a technical system to implement the collection, storage, management, calculation, analysis, display and description of geospatial information data. The results help to understand what is happening in a geographical space which can increase efficiency in building planning and design. The current ‘lack of BIM innovation’ and ‘lack of BIM talent’ could delay the progress of Chinese “smart” cities, which aim to reduce resource consumption and cost and use digital technologies to benefit their citizens.

This programme will be run entirely at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) with internship opportunities in leading BIM companies in China. It is a collaboration between Department of Architecture and Built Environment and Civil Engineering. In particular, research and teaching support will be provided by two leading research laboratories including Geospatial BIM lab and Digital City Infrastructure and technology Innovation Laboratory (D-CiTi Lab). These laboratories are working closely with leading AEC consultants (Arup, WSP BP), international professional institutions (RICS, ICES, CIBSE) and leading BIM software vendors (Autodesk, Bentley, Leica, Tekla, Trimble).

Students are able to learn how to use and operate a very wide variety of state-of-the-art software, as well as surveying equipment including servo driven total stations, laser scanners, GNSS, digital and analogue photogrammetry. With extensive project and consultancy experience on the Geospatial Engineering, BIM in the AEC sector in the UK and China, the team is planning to promote the Smart City with multi-dimension BIM applications across China.

Advantages of studying this programme at the University of Nottingham Ningbo:

  • be familiar with BIM related software and surveying device
  • the ability to apply their skills directly within the surveying and AEC industry
  • react quickly to new technologies and innovations
  • communicate ideas effectively in written reports, verbally and presentations to groups
  • exercise original thought, as well as gain interpersonal, communication and professional skills
  • participate real project work for experience accumulation
  • plan and undertake individual projects

This programme will help:

  • gain a complete understanding of theory, practice and issues of BIM and Geospatial technologies
  • acquire opportunities to use what you have learnt in real project work
  • explore new research methodology to promote development in this field
  • acquire technical skills of software operation, data analysis and design optimization
  • improve team-work ability and communication skill
  • foster individual ability to conduct academic researches

Course structure

The course is studied over 12months. 60 credits of modules are studied in the autumn and 60 credits of modules are studied in the Spring Semesters. A research project is undertaken in the summer semester, also worth 60 credits.

The structure of the MSc Professional Accounting programme is modular, with individual modules each having a weighting of 20 credits. One credit represents 10 hours of student work, meaning that a 20 credit module represents 200 hours of study including formal teaching, independent study, revision, and the preparation of assessments. For teaching purposes the academic year is divided into two semesters (Autumn and Spring) that consists of 12 weeks of teaching, respectively, followed by periods of revision and examination assessment. A degree requires the successful completion of 240 credits, 60 of which are taken at each semester.

Students spend a minimum of 9 weeks of internship (placement) each year with a large international accounting firm as an integral part of the programme (subject to assessment for Fitness to Practice). Students must attend and pass the assessments for both the Accounting Internship and Accounting Project modules to be awarded the MSc Professional Accounting.
