Bachelor of Science 理學士

BSc

Short Description

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.

Biology

1. BSc(Hons) in Applied Biology
The programme is structured to provide the necessary background and training in the biological sciences to meet local and international needs in the fields of agriculture and fisheries, biotechnology, conservation, environmental monitoring and pollution control, health and sanitation.

This programme offers two concentrations of study:
i) Biotechnology 
This concentration is structured to nurture students with the basic and up-to-date knowledge and techniques of biotechnology including molecular biology, immunology, and fermentation and enzyme technology.
ii) Environmental Science
This concentration is designed to train students with understanding in biological and chemical basis of environmental problems, their control and management, as well as the restoration and remediation of degraded or derelict lands and ecosystems.

2. 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.

Students will be provided with hands-on experience in agricultural technology and bioresource conservation required for an array of bioresource, agriculture, and environmental related professions, including agribusiness, consultancy, research and development, non-governmental organisations, green groups, government departments (e.g. AFCD, EPD, LCSD), property management, etc.

To further equip students with real world experience, each student admitted into this programme will be offered an experiential internship opportunity, in addition to professional Organic Certification and Inspector Training by the International Organic Inspectors Association (IOIA) to enable them to carry out organic inspections worldwide. 

Chemistry

3. BSc(Hons) in Analytical and Testing Sciences
The aim of the programme is to provide students with a broad-based training in major scientific disciplines to support their study in analytical and testing science which is multi-disciplinary in nature.

This programme emphasises on developing students' analytical mind and good problem-solving skills needed to solve the diversity of problems encountered in their future career. It will also equip students with the knowledge and practical skills to contribute to the growing analytical and testing industry.


4. BSc (Hons) in Chemistry

The aim of the programme is to provide students with a strong foundation in all principal areas of chemical science and knowledge in developing career and solving real-life chemical problems, including those in the environmental area, and to meet the needs from government, education, industrial or commercial sectors. The curriculum is designed to equip students with ample knowledge in both pure and applied chemistry so that you are adequately and flexibly trained for both employment and postgraduate studies locally or overseas.

Students admitted into this programme will be introduced to fundamental principles of all principal branches of chemistry and other related scientific disciplines. Knowledge in more specialised areas of chemistry will be acquired through a variety of Major elective courses. Research experience and hands-on laboratory skills are gained through a required Final Year Project.

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.

This programme offers three concentrations of study:
i) Computing and Software Technologies (CST)
ii) Information Systems and Analytics (ISA)
iii) Data and Media Communication (DMC)#

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 and double concentrations (CST+DMC and ISA+ DMC).

#This is an interdisciplinary concentration co-offered with the Department of Journalism, School of Communication.

Mathematics

6. BSc(Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics
This 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 five concentrations of study:
i) Actuarial Statistics (collaborated with Simon Fraser University, Canada)
ii) Financial Risk Management (collaborated with School of Business)
iii) Operations Research
iv) Quantitative Data Analysis

v) Scientific Computing
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. For details of the double degree programme, please visit: www.math.hkbu.edu.hk/DoubleDegree.  

Physics

8. BSc(Hons) in Physics and Green Energy
The aim of the programme is to prepare students for a career in Applied Physics or the Green Energy sector.

This programme offers two concentrations of study:
i) Applied Physics
This concentration provides analytical and practical knowledge and skills for students interested in career in technology development and application, innovation or research in advanced topics. Graduates will find employment in high-tech companies and industries, or continue post-graduate study in world-renowned universities. 
ii) Energy Management and Technology
This concentration is aligned with the international certificate programme, Certified Energy Manager (CEM), in collaboration with the Hong Kong Association of Energy Engineers. Students can obtain global CEM certification after passing the CEM examination with appropriate working experience. Students also have internship opportunities (e.g. CLP, EMSD), which will prepare them to be Green Energy professionals.

Remarks:

Students may take an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a bachelor's degree plus a Diploma in Education.
