School of Energy and Environment

The School of Energy and Environment (SEE) performs cutting-edge research and provides professional education in energy- and environment-related issues. The School is designed to tackle interactive relationship between energy and environment through the development of new scientific understanding and new technologies as well as the training of new professionals with broad knowledge in the areas of energy and environment.

We have a highly internationalised and experienced faculty from various countries specialising in atmospheric and climate science, biological science, chemistry, chemical engineering, energy economics, environmental engineering, environmental policy, mechanical engineering and materials science.  SEE endeavours to produce a new breed of engineers and professionals capable of solving energy and environmental problems.

We currently offer the following majors:

  • Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Science and Engineering
  • Bachelor of Engineering in 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.



We aim to:

  • advance research in targeted themes of benefit to societal needs in energy, environment and sustainability;
  • prepare leaders and practitioners to address environmental and energy needs in a rapidly decarbonizing world and build a sustainable future; and
  • maintain a collaborative and supportive atmosphere for students, faculty, alumni and other stakeholders in advancing our interdisciplinary research and educational objectives

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 40% of students# will have a free choice of majors offered by the School. The other 60% of students will be allocated a major within the School, subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.

# based on CGPA with no failed grades and completion of at least 30 credit units including School required courses

Energy/Environment in Science, Technology & Advanced Research (eSTAR)

“Energy/Environment in Science, Technology & Advanced Research (eSTAR)” is a stream introduced in our two existing undergraduate programmes, namely Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Science and Engineering (ESE) and Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Science and Engineering (EVE), for implementation from Semester A 2021/22, applicable to normative 4-year degree students of the 2020/21 entry and thereafter.  With eSTAR, it is expected that students will be equipped with cutting-edge skills and knowledge in emerging fields.

For details of eSTAR, please visit the page at

Integrated Enrichment Programme

Integrated Enrichment Programme comprises a wide range of co-curricular activities and training that are tailored for SEE undergraduate students. Through the programme, students will be exposed to not only summer study tours and regular student exchange, industry-ready internship, but also professional training in leadership, presentation skills, business etiquette, business communication, and so on. The series of co-curricular activities organized by SEE every year aims to equip our students to be all-round professionals who possess skillsets highly sought after by the job market.

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.  Additionally, ESE and EVE students may choose to enrol in optional electives if they are interested in being a HKIE member in the Building Services (BSS) 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.
