Bachelor of Science 理學士

BSc

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.

Biology

BSc(Hons) in Bioresource and Agricultural Science (subject to University’s approval)
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. Graduates 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 organizations, green groups, government departments (e.g. AFCD, EPD, LCSD), property management, etc. To equip students with real world experience, students will be offered experiential internship opportunities, and professional Organic Inspection Certificate Training by the International Organic Inspectors Association to enable them to carry out organic inspections worldwide.

BSc(Hons) in Applied Biology
- The programme is structured to provide background and training in the biological sciences to meet local and global needs in the fields of agriculture and fisheries, biotechnology, biomedical research, conservation, environmental monitoring and pollution control, health and sanitation.
- There are 2 Concentrations: Biotechnology and Environmental Science.

Chemistry

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, and to meet the needs from government, education, industrial or commercial sectors.
- The curriculum is designed to equip students with the knowledge of pure and applied chemistry required for employment or postgraduate study.

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 multi-disciplinary analytical and testing science.
- To promote the analytical and problem-solving skills required to solve the diversity of problems encountered in students' future careers.
- To equip students with the knowledge and practical skills required to contribute to the growing analytical and testing industry.

Computer Science

BSc(Hons) in Computer Science
The general aim of BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, with accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers^, is to prepare students for a career in computer science or information technology related areas. Students will be equipped to work in the Information and Communication Technology industry or pursue postgraduate study in Hong Kong or abroad. Graduates of this programme will have learnt how to learn and, have the skills and confidence to meet the challenges in the rapidly changing information technology world.

This programme offers three concentrations of study#:
  • Computing and Software Technologies Concentration (CST)
    This concentration equips students with concepts, principles and practices of computing and software technologies to contribute to technological innovations.

  • Information Systems and Analytics Concentration (ISA)
    This concentration equips students with knowledge and practices of information systems design, development and integration, as well as information analytics skills for creative applications in real-world organizations.

  • Data and Media Communication Concentration (DMC)
    This is an interdisciplinary concentration co-offered with the Department of Journalism, School of Communication. It emphasizes both data analytics and journalistic principles and skills for media organizations as well as related industries.

Students are able to gain IT work experience training through summer internship and 1-year placement opportunities. Also, the programme offers diversified overseas outreach opportunities for students such as study tours, overseas internship, overseas summer research programme and overseas study exchange.

^ Full accreditation has been granted for CST concentration, ISA concentration and double concentrations (CST+ DMC and ISA+DMC).

#Double Concentration Options: CST / ISA students are eligible to take DMC as the second concentration.

Mathematics

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 visualization, computational finance, engineering design, actuarial science, clinical research, industrial applications, social science research and others.

Concentration options in Operations Research, Scientific Computing, Quantitative Data Analysis, Financial Risk Management (jointly offered with School of Business) and Actuarial Statistics (jointly offered with Simon Fraser University, Canada) are available.

BSc(Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics and BSc in Actuarial Science
This 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.


Physics

BSc(Hons) in Physics and Green Energy
The BSc (Hons) in Physics and Green Energy prepares students for a career in Applied Physics or the Green Energy sector. Two study concentrations are offered: (i) Applied Physics, and (ii) Energy Management and Technology (with a focus on energy audit, energy-saving and renewable energy technologies).

(i) Applied Physics Concentration: This concentration provides analytical and practical knowledge and skills for students interested in pursuing a future career in technology development and application, innovation as well as 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 Concentration: This concentration is aligned with the international certificate program, Certified Energy Manager (CEM), in collaboration with the Association of Energy Engineer Hong Kong. Students can obtain global CEM certification after passing the CEM examination with appropriate working experience. Besides in-class learning and projects, students also have internship opportunities (e.g., CLP, EMSD, Hong Kong Jockey Club), which will prepare them to be Green Energy professionals working in, such as energy audit and consulting, energy/utility companies, green building and energy conservation.


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.
