Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Green Energy Science
 

Energy is an issue of growing importance in our society. Sustainable developments hinge on our energy technologies and their sensible use. The four-year full-time BSc (Hons) in Green Energy Science aims at preparing students for a multidisciplinary career in the energy sector, which involves trainings in scientific principles, technology, and social sciences. The specific objectives are as follows:

 
1. To provide students with a solid and broad foundation for the study of Energy Science including the generation, storage, and efficient use of energy.
2. To provide students with experimental and analytical skills for Energy Science.
3. To highlight the physical basis of various forms of energy technologies, especially those which are self-sustainable in nature.
4. To expose students to the socio-economic and environmental impacts of energy problem on our society.
 
The structure of the curriculum is as follows:
