Course Overview

In Hong Kong, as in other densely-populated cities, environmental issues such as the deterioration of air and water quality, and increased constraints on solid waste management, have posed great challenges to environmental engineers.

The Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) and Master of Science (MSc) Programs in Environmental Engineering and Management seek to meet the needs of practicing engineers who may be engaged in the design, commissioning and management of environmental facilities and infrastructure systems.

The programs are designed for those who wish to strengthen their environmental engineering knowledge and to well prepare themselves for advanced engineering practices with management responsibilities. The programs not only offer advanced environmental engineering and management courses for students but also enable them to take several electives from other related programs.

On successful completion of the program, graduates will be able to:

  • Describe basic and advanced knowledge in environmental engineering and management;
  • Identify environmental problems and propose feasible environmental engineering or management solutions;
  • Illustrate contemporary environmental issues with the awareness of the environmental impacts;
  • Design basic environmental engineering components and systems; and
  • Analyze major factors impacting environmental engineering systems and provide strategies for managing these.
