Here at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China, we work very closely with our colleagues at the UK campus. Our research is organised through the below groups, with PhD students co-supervised by academics between both campuses, shared resources and collaborative grants targeting local, national and international funding sources.

The School of Computer Science at The University of Nottingham, UK was established 30 years ago and is currently a leading centre for computer science research. Our world-leading research engages and solves real-world problems that have impact upon society, the financial sector and the industry. It involves a shared ethos of "computing in the world" in which fundamental advances in computer science are connected to knowledge and methods from other disciplines to enable deep collaboration with researchers and specialists in diverse sectors.
