JS4750 UGC-funded ASEIDM Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Science and Earth Informatics + X (ASEI+X) Double Major Programme
航天科學與地球信息學 +X 雙主修課程

The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Science and Earth Informatics + X is a comprehensive Collaborative Double Major Programme jointly offered by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) (CUHK (SZ)).

The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Science and Earth Informatics offers a comprehensive programme that aims to unravel the mysteries of outer space and our own planet.  This highly interdisciplinary undergraduate major combines the realms of aerospace science and Earth informatics, equipping students to harness the power of data and invent innovative solutions to explore the outer space and to safeguard our planet Earth.

Cutting-Edge Technologies
Aerospace science encompasses the scientific exploration, development and application of technologies to study and navigate within and beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.  Earth informatics combines knowledge of Earth sciences and skills of geospatial data science to understand and monitor the Earth’s environments and changes.  Integrated within a coherent, interdisciplinary programme, students are able to gain an in-depth understanding of the intricate interplay between space exploration and the Earth’s environment, acquiring expertise in satellite and aerospace technologies, remote sensing, geoinformatics and geospatial data analysis, machine learning, atmospheric and space physics, environmental and climate change monitoring and modeling.

Diverse Career Opportunities
Students will be prepared to step into a world of ample career opportunities, with skills and knowledge sought after by aerospace companies, space agencies, environmental consulting firms, geographic information system (GIS) companies, government agencies, research institutes, and NGOs.  Students will also be ready for advanced studies in the Earth and planetary sciences, space physics, climate science, aerospace engineering, information technology, and data science.

Unlock Boundless Opportunities 
As part of a double-major programme with CUHK (Shenzhen), students will take advantage of a second major to become more specialized in a field related to ASEI, including but not limited to aerospace engineering, Earth and climate sciences, new energy science, space physics, data science, geographic information science, and natural resource management.

Students enrolled in the four-year programme will pursue a major in Aerospace Science and Earth Informatics at CUHK along with another major from among specific academic disciplines (Engineering, Science and Social Science) offered by either CUHK or CUHK(SZ).  They will attend classes and participate in learning and research activities at both the CUHK Shatin campus and the Shenzhen campus.

Please refer to the programme website for more information.

(This new programme to be introduced in 2024 – 2025 is subject to confirmation of the University Senate of CUHK.)

Applicants who wish to update their programme choices must do so before the deadline for submission of programme choices (i.e. 6 December 2023 (11:59 pm)) via their JUPAS accounts.  Any change request submitted after the deadline will be charged an amendment fee of HK$100 per request until 29 May 2024 (11:59 pm).
