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 on 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.


The School of Energy and Environment currently offers the following majors:

  • BEng Energy Science and Engineering
  • BEng Environmental Science and Engineering

Students start with a common year of foundation study. The content of our programmes covers a wide spectrum of areas, allowing students to explore knowledge in a number of environments. At the beginning of their studies, they develop a broad scientific foundation by studying courses in basic science, covering mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry and biology before they are guided through an in-depth exploration of environment and energy issues. Students declare their majors after completing the foundation courses in the first year.


學院注重跨學科的教學,與大學多個學系及學院合作,課程內容涵蓋眾多領域,促使學生在跨學科環境下探索求知。學院先為學生建立廣闊的基礎,然後帶領他們深入研習能源及環境的相關科目。學生在第一學年須修讀數學、電腦、物理、化學、生物等基礎科學科目,以了解各門科學在能源和環境課題上的應用。第二年,學生將根據自己被編配的主修學科進一步修讀跟「能源科學及工程學」或「環境科學及工程學」課程相關的科目。

 

Mission


We aim to:

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

Entrance Requirements for JUPAS Applicants

 

To be considered for admission, you must satify the minimum entrance requirements.

 


Admission Arrangements for JUPAS Applicants

 

JUPAS applicants will be considered for admission to first-year studies at the School of Energy and Environment. Students will enter a major (current major options: Energy Science and Engineering; Environmental Science and Engineering) after one year of study. The top 20% of students# will have a 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.

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 abroad. SEE students can apply for exchange places at our partner institutions for both institutional and school level programmes.


Internship Programme

The Internship Programme is aligned with the learning outcomes of our Bachelor’s programmes, aiming to equip students with a clear understanding and appreciation of the 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 the second and third year of undergraduate study, as arranged with our internship partners. Students normally spend about eight weeks on the internship. Some individual companies/organisations may offer students one-year placements.


Professional Recognition


Our undergraduate programmes, Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Science and Engineering (ESE) and Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Science and Engineering (EVE), are accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).  The ESE programme meets the academic requirement for HKIE Corporate Membership in both the energy and environmental disciplines while EVE programme in environmental discipline.


The HKIE has agreements for reciprocal recognition of professional qualifications with engineering authorities in Australia, Canada, Ireland, the Mainland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and agreements of co-operation with other organisations in Europe, the Mainland, North America and Southeast Asia.
