Master of Science in Green Technology (Energy)

Programme Director: Dr HUANG, Jeffery

The programme aims to further the training of graduates for a career in energy management, renewable energy technologies, energy audit, and energy management. The programme exposes the highly interdisciplinary nature of green technology as it encompasses the fields of materials science, renewable energy technologies, and the social implications it has on human activities. The content of the programme covers the areas of energy production, energy usage, energy audit, environmental monitoring, energy management and hands-on experience.

The programme provides the rigorous and scientific training associated with the renewable energy technologies, the problem-solving skills, and the collective knowledge of the economics, the policies and the regulations for effective energy management. A key feature in the MSc programme is to enhance students' learning by the extensive experimental activities and research project work that all students must complete to graduate. We see an importance in the graduates’ ability to understand and appreciate the implication of the technologies on society.

The MSc programme covers both the classroom and the extra-curricular activities including field trips to green buildings and renewable energy power generation sites, guided research projects. The connections the programme established with the industry and professionals will also help to maintain our MSc with a high standard. The MSc programme will assist in arranging other professional training opportunities and help our students for taking professional examinations*. This whole-person training approach is the education ethos that our University values.
