Remarks

The Postgraduate Scheme in Construction and Environment will be dissolved effective from the 2022/23 academic year. The programme ownership of the taught postgraduate programmes will be transferred from the Faculty of Construction and Environment (FCE) to relevant academic departments. The programme requirements and award titles will NOT be affected by this transfer. The programme codes will however be revised due to operational needs.

Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The programme aims to provide EITHER (1) studies of a conversion nature for those graduates without formal environmental qualifications who are working or would like to work in the environmental protection field OR (2) studies of an in-depth nature for those graduates who have already possessed a Bachelor's qualification in environmental science or engineering.

The programme provides students with engineering and management knowledge to tackle environmental engineering problems in the field of construction, industrial and infrastructure development, and to embrace sustainable development and the requisite international standards of environmental and energy conservation.

Characteristics

This programme, which offers both in-depth and conversion study, suits both graduates and professionals with previous qualifications who wish to gain advanced knowledge of environmental engineering and management or to diversify their expertise into the environmental fields. It allows students the flexibility to choose environmental engineering and environmental management subjects to build up knowledge in line with their specific needs.
