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).
This programme offers two concentrations of study:
The distinctive feature about this programme in Hong Kong is that it integrates conceptual physics, energy science and technology, and energy management so that students can acquire a holistic training and prepare for careers in the energy sector. The training also helps our students to prepare for taking professional examinations^, which are helpful for our graduates to develop their careers as green energy professionals.
Student Learning Experiences
Upon completion of this programme, graduates will have the proficiency to pursue a career in high-tech industry, commerce, consulting, and teaching or pursue postgraduate studies in Hong Kong or abroad.
Graduates in the Applied Physics Concentration will have the knowledge and quantitative skills in instrumental control, scientific computing and modeling, and advanced materials. These skill sets will allow them to secure jobs both in the educational sector as well as in high-tech industry as applied scientists and engineers. Many new opportunities are now available in the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) thanks to the establishment of the Innovation and Technology Bureau (ITB). Six start-up companies have been recently established in the Physics Department alone, and some of them are seeking our graduates as their employees.
Graduates from the Energy Management and Technology Concentration will find many opportunities in the rapidly expanding green energy sector. Latest development involves application of energy technology for green/smart buildings to save energy.
