Aims and Characteristics

As the first masters-level programme in Hong Kong specialising in carbon management and mitigation science and technology, this programme aims to provide graduates with systematic hands-on training to tackle challenging and dynamic global issues related to carbon auditing, green financing, carbon management and sustainable/renewable energy. Such training will enable graduates to meet the increasing local and national demand for qualified professionals in the field of carbon neutrality. Specifically, the programme aims:

  • To equip students with up-to-date scientific and technological knowledge to address current and emerging environmental issues and concerns.
  • To develop students’ ability to formulate and implement the latest scientific and management concepts and tools and thus address corporations’ need to achieve their zero-emissions goals.
  • To provide rigorous cross-disciplinary training that enables students to create innovative and multi-faceted solutions to problems involving carbon neutrality, energy transition and low-carbon energy conversion systems.


Upon successful completion of the programme, students should be able:

  • To explain and articulate the major points of specific sustainability problems and devise possible solutions by applying scientific and technological concepts.
  • To master theoretical and technical carbon auditing principles and data analytical tools for calculating the carbon footprint and setting carbon trading mechanisms.
  • To keep abreast of the latest regulatory policies and laws on carbon abatement at the local, national, regional and international levels to ensure legal compliance in specific industries.
  • To demonstrate critical thinking and analytical skills in environmental, social and governance (ESG) evaluations of carbon neutrality, as well as the assessment of green finance sustainability when implementing low-/zero-carbon technologies and renewable energy generation.
