Sustainability and the protection of our environment are among the greatest concerns of today and tomorrow. The need to find a balance between human development and environmental well-being is becoming ever-more pressing.
The cutting-edge BSc in Environmental Management and Technology (EVMT) program offers a unique opportunity for motivated students to become part of a new generation of environmental professionals with cross-disciplinary knowledge. Graduates will be able to deliver ecologically and economically sound solutions and are well placed to become sustainability managers in corporations in Hong Kong and around the globe. EVMT is accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Qualified Environmental Professionals (HKIQEP).
Drawing on HKUST’s expertise in science, engineering, management and the social sciences, the EVMT program examines issues from multiple viewpoints to enable students to integrate different perspectives and generate innovative ideas and solutions. Specially designed courses cover subjects such as environmental technology; environmental law; environmental, social and governance (ESG) management and reporting; green business; energy resources and sustainable development. In the final year, theory is put into practice through work on real-world problems with companies and NGOs in the Capstone Project.
Internships, exchanges, and the development of social skills such as effective communication, teamwork and leadership training, build students’ capabilities and confidence to work on environmental issues in business, governmental and institutional sectors.
