The University of Nottingham began as an adult


education centre in 1798 and later became an
external college of the University of London. The
UK University was granted its Royal Charter in 1948
– making Nottingham the first university to receive
a Royal Charter after World War II.
China The Sunday Times says “A model of consistent
excellence, Nottingham has been ranked between
8th and 12th in every edition of The Sunday Times
Malaysia Good University Guide over the past nine years. It
identifies the university as one of the most desirable
destinations in higher education with first-rate
facilities, attractive campuses and the opportunity
for some to study at Semenyih, near Kuala Lumpur
in Malaysia, and Ningbo in China, where parallel
courses are taught in English.” Described by The
Times as Britain’s “only truly global university”, it has
invested continuously in award-winning campuses
in the United Kingdom, China and Malaysia.

It is difficult to overstate the importance of
engineering in our rapidly evolving world.
Engineering solutions are all around us - portable
devices, clean water and healthcare products that
enable us to live longer and, arguably, better lives.
If we’re to continue to innovate then we need the
right people. People who can challenge, people
who can create and most of all, people who can
apply new knowledge in new products and new
processes. These are just some of the things you’ll
learn in one of our many engineering courses.
