We are living in a world facing serious interrelated environmental problems, including climate change, pervasive pollution, reduction in biodiversity, and looming supply constraints for a number of key natural resources. Individually, and especially in combination, these issues pose serious challenges to sustainable development.
The Division of Environment and Sustainability has been created to meet such challenges. Our faculty members have diverse backgrounds in science, engineering, business, and social sciences to provide integrated and cutting-edge education and research on global environmental issues and emerging solutions.
Our postgraduate programs offer students a great opportunity to gain a broader understanding of environmental science and related policies to help increase their understanding of the issues involved in tackling the environment and their ability to generate meaningful solutions.
This is a broad-based research postgraduate program that embraces a wide spectrum of environmental interests. It serves as an innovative platform for interdisciplinary research involving scientific, technological, environmental socio-economic and policy challenges.
The program trains students in original research and seeks to cultivate the independent, interdisciplinary, and innovative thinking that is essential for a successful career in research, management, or policy formulation in this area. It provides students with the background to solve complex environmental problems and to engage in interdisciplinary environmental research that can have a high impact on Hong Kong and the world.
To facilitate interdisciplinary research, students enrolled in the Program will be co-supervised by faculty members of the Division who have been appointed jointly with other schools.
The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) program aims to train students to conduct independent interdisciplinary research in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management.
