BSc in Environmental Management and Technology 理學士(環境管理及科技)

EVMT

Short Description

Sustainability and the protection of our environment are among the greatest global concerns of today and tomorrow, with an ever-more pressing need to find a balance between human development and environmental well-being.

The pace-setting BSc in Environmental Management and Technology (EVMT) program offers a unique opportunity for motivated students to move ahead in this area, educating a new generation of environmental professionals with cross-disciplinary knowledge to deliver ecologically and economically sound solutions and to take up the role of sustainability managers in corporations in Hong Kong and around the globe.

Under the Academy of Interdisciplinary Studies, EVMT program draws on HKUST’s expertise in science, engineering, management and the social sciences, to examine issues from multiple viewpoints and enable students to integrate different perspectives and generate innovative ideas and solutions. Specially designed courses cover subjects such as environmental technology for impact assessment, environmental law, environmental, social and governance (ESG) management and reporting, green business strategy, energy sources and usage, sustainable development, and life cycle assessment. In the final year of study, theory is put into practice through working on real-world problems with companies and NGOs in the Capstone Project. Internships, exchanges and the development of social skills, including effective communication, teamwork and leadership training, further develop students’ capabilities and confidence to work on environmental issues in business, governmental and institutional sectors. EVMT is accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Qualified Environmental Professionals (HKIQEP).
