School of Energy and Environment

The School performs cutting-edge research and provides professional education on globally hot issues related to energy and the environment. The development of technologies that can generate clean and sustainable energy, as well as studies of the impact on the environment and global climate change from energy use and production, must therefore be at the forefront of energy and environmental research.

To mitigate climate change resulting from the overuse of fossil fuels, governments, industries and business sectors have been gearing up to use technologies focused on energy efficiency and conservation. This is where the School of Energy and Environment, as an educator, steps in to provide the required training.




We aim to:

  • Advancing research in targeted themes of benefit to societal needs in energy, environment, and sustainability
  • Educating engineers and professionals at undergraduate and graduate levels adopting holistic approaches which provide innovative solutions to local and regional problems in energy, environment, and sustainability
  • Maintaining a collaborative and supportive atmosphere for students, faculty, alumni and other stakeholders in advancing our interdisciplinary research and educational objectives

Admission Arrangements for Direct/Non-JUPAS Applicants

Applicants holding a 12-year school-leaving qualification or a partially completed sub-degree qualification will apply for admission to first-year studies at the School of Energy and Environment. During their first year of studies, students will study a broad range of Gateway Education (GE) and School core courses. Students will enter a major after one year of study. The top 20% of students of the School [based on (i) cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of Semester B; (ii) no failed grades in any courses in Semesters A and B; and (iii) completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A and B, including the number of credit units specified by the School for its required courses] will have free choice of majors offered by the School. The other 80% of students will be allocated a major within the School, subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.

Applicants holding a 13-year school-leaving qualification (e.g., IB Diploma, GCE A-level) may apply for admission to a major offered by the School of Energy and Environment with Advanced Standing I, or to the School to study the four-year programme without advanced standing (first-year studies). The minimum graduation requirement for Advanced Standing I entrants is 96 credits.

Current major options: Energy Science and Engineering; Environmental Science and Engineering.  The University reserves the right to make changes to the major offerings.

Entrance Requirements for Direct/Non-JUPAS Applicants

To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements.  In addition to meeting the entrance requirements, applicants are expected to have studied a subject related to Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics or Science at a high school or post-secondary institution.

Student Exchange/Internship

Student Exchange Programme

To widen the global horizon and enhance the learning experience, students are encouraged to join the Student Exchange Programme which allows them to undertake part of their degree study aboard. SEE students can apply for exchange places of partner institutions at both institutional and school level programmes.

Internship Programme

The Internship is in tandem with the learning outcomes of our Bachelor's programmes in fostering students with a clear understanding and appreciation of energy and environmental issues encountered by the government, business, industry and the community at large. The Internship is conducted during either the summer break between the first and second year, or between the second and third year of the undergraduate study, as arranged with the Internship Partners. It is expected that students will spend about 8 weeks on the Internship. Some more one-year placement will be offered to our students by the companies/organizations individually.
