Bachelor of Science (Hons) 理學士(榮譽)


Short DescriptionUpdated

Under 4-year curriculum, students will be admitted on a Faculty basis with broad-based education in science in the first year. Students will have a free choice of 8 Majors leading to award of the Bachelor of Science below.


1) BSc(Hons) in Applied Biology
This programme offers two concentrations of study:
i) Biotechnology 
ii) Environmental Science

The programme is structured to provide the necessary training in the biological sciences to meet local and international needs in the fields of biotechnology biomedical science, environmental technology and management, and ecosystem conservation management. Various laboratory courses and field trips are provided to equip students with technical skills for biological and biomedical research and biotechnology and environmental industry.

2) BSc(Hons) in Applied Biology and BSc(Hons) in Ecology and Conservation [Double Degree]
This programme is jointly offered by the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and the University of Lincoln in UK. In this “3+1” Double Degree programme, students studying in the Environmental Science concentration of the Applied Biology programme will study the first three years at HKBU to gain fundamental and advanced knowledge and skills in environmental science and management to address current and topical environmental and human health-related issues and problems, and study Year 4 at the University of Lincoln in its Ecology and Conservation programme. This will provide students with a firm grounding in the principles of ecology and conservation to address challenges pertaining to the conservation of biodiversity.

3) BSc(Hons) in Bioresource and Agricultural Science
The programme is the first and unique agriculture related professional programme in Hong Kong, which focuses on the integration of agriculture with bioresource management with the aim of cultivating an understanding of the social, ecological and environmental significance of agricultural practices and bioresource conservation from the perspective of sustainability.

All students admitted into this programme will be offered an internship opportunity, and free professional organic certification and inspector training by the International Organic Inspectors Association (IOIA) to enable them to carry out organic inspections worldwide.


4) BSc(Hons) in Biochemical and Testing Sciences
This programme offers two concentrations of study:
i) Biomedical Chemistry (BMC)
ii) Testing and Certification (T&C)

The aim of the programme is to provide students with a strong foundation in all principal areas of chemical sciences. The curriculum is designed to equip students with ample knowledge and skills in (applied) chemistry and biochemistry, solving real-world scientific problems especially in biomedicine and (bio)chemical testing. Emphasis will also be placed on developing students’ analytical mind, logical and critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, which are the essential generic capabilities in employment and postgraduate study.

Computer Science

5) BSc(Hons) in Computer Science
The aim of the programme^ is to prepare students for pursuing a career or postgraduate study in computer science or Information Communication Technology related areas. For details, please visit website

This programme offers four concentrations of study:
i) Artificial Intelligence (AI)
ii) Computing and Software Technologies (CST)
iii) Data and Media Communication (DMC)
(collaborated with Department of Journalism, School of Communication)
iv) Information Systems and Analytics (ISA)

The programme includes diversified learning experience, such as (overseas) summer internship, 1-year placement, overseas summer research programme and overseas study exchange.

^ Full accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) has been granted for CST, ISA, AI and double concentrations (CST+DMC, ISA+DMC and AI +DMC).


6) BSc(Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics
The programme is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in mathematical and statistical concepts with an aim towards developing logical thinking and analytical skills that are applicable to various career fields.

Special emphasis on applications in industrial and commercial areas is stressed, and students are well trained in the use of various computer software packages to solve real-life problems in management science, logistics, computer visualisation, computational finance, engineering design, actuarial science, clinical research, industrial applications, social science research and others.

This programme offers two concentrations of study:
i) Data Science
ii) Applied Statistics

Students can graduate without any concentration or with one or two concentration(s) according to their interest and career goal.

7) BSc(Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics and BSc in Actuarial Science [Double Degree]
The programme is jointly offered by the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and Simon Fraser University (SFU). The double degree approach leverages the quantitative and market skills of mathematics, statistics and actuarial science with corporate financial management practices. As such, this programme between HKBU and SFU has many elements, such as risk assessment and market structure, which are not in current course offerings at HKBU. Thus, the programme, while having finance at its heart, represents a unique combination of skills from mathematics, statistics and actuarial science. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interviews and entrance examination.   


8) BSc(Hons) in Green Energy and Smart Technology
The aim of the programme is to nurture young professionals with the knowledge and practical skills to develop and implement green and smart technology-driven approaches for a career in the rapidly expanding sector of smart and net-zero carbon city development. This programme provides training in green energy science and smart technology, such as green energy generation, smart energy storage and distribution, smart control systems and IoT, carbon audit, energy audit and energy management. In addition to in-class learning and projects, students have experiential learning opportunities, such as internship and overseas study exchange. Courses are also available to help students to prepare for professional certification examinations. Students graduating from this programme are well equipped and highly competitive for careers as green energy and smart technology professionals, e.g., in energy audit and consulting, energy/utility companies, green/smart building design and management, smart transportation and energy conservation. The basic science training also prepares students for further studies in science and engineering, or careers in technology innovation.


The general unit requirement is 128 units but the unit requirement of BSc(Hons) in Bioresource and Agricultural Science is 129 units with the additional 1 unit for Summer Internship.
