Energy has been considered a core research area within the broadly-based disciplines of environmental science and technology. It is one of the most salient emerging disciplines amongst many in the fields of engineering, science and social science. Energy Technology research covers many areas, including sustainable technology, conventional technology, and energy efficiency and conservation. The interdisciplinary postgraduate research program in Energy Technology in the School of Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology provides long-term support to our ongoing educational training and fast-developing research in technology in general.

Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of Energy Technology, research and training in the field is integrated with different disciplines so that students can be equipped with the necessary knowledge and experience. The School of Engineering has introduced an Energy Technology Concentration in different disciplines including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management and Mechanical Engineering. Students can enroll in a particular discipline for research with a special focus on topic(s) in Energy Technology.

The Energy Technology Concentration is open exclusively to research postgraduates in the School of Engineering. Students interested in energy technology can enroll in one of the following research degree programs:
-MPhil/PhD in Chemical Engineering and Biomolecular Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Civil Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Computer Science and Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Electronic and Computer Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management
-MPhil/PhD in Mechanical Engineering

Nanoscience and technology have become one of the most visible and fast growing multidisciplinary research areas. Nanoscience and technology research, ranging from nanostructured-materials to nanoelectronics, covers diverse areas in many disciplines, such as medicine and healthcare, aeronautics and space, environmental studies and energy, biotechnology and agriculture, national security and education. A joint postgraduate program in Nanoscience and Technology, initiated by the Schools of Science and Engineering, can offer long-term support to our ongoing research and training as well as to the development of technology and to commercialization efforts. Because of the diverse, multidisciplinary nature of Nanotechnology, its research and training can be best integrated into different disciplines. The aim of the concentration is to equip students with the necessary knowledge in the areas on which they wish to focus on.

Given the above developments, the School of Engineering has introduced the Nanotechnology Concentration in different disciplines including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electronic and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. This allows students to enroll in a particular discipline and pursue a focused-study on a specific area of Nanotechnology or Nanoscience.

The Nanotechnology Concentration is open exclusively to School of Engineering research postgraduates. Students must enroll in one of the following research degree programs prior to their registration for the Nanotechnology Concentration:
-MPhil/PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Civil Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Electronic and Computer Engineering
-MPhil/PhD in Mechanical Engineering

Chemistry as a discipline is growing and changing rapidly. The traditional divisions of Chemistry into analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry no longer reflect the dynamic and multidisciplinary nature of the field. Chemistry is, in fact, the "central science", having relevance in areas such as molecular biology, molecular physics, materials science, molecular engineering, biotechnology, environmental science and drug design.

As a postgraduate student in the Department of Chemistry at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, you will have the chance to study in programs that reflect the current, central, position of Chemistry and you will learn from diverse, innovative faculty at the forefront of their fields of research.

Our mission is to offer research and instructional opportunities in the emerging areas of Chemistry while maintaining a program rooted in the basics of the discipline. Postgraduate programs emphasize training in original research focusing on fundamental, interdisciplinary and applied areas. Complementing our formal degree programs is an active seminar program allowing students to meet prominent and international scientists who are pioneering the creation of new chemical knowledge.

The Department now has 19 full-time faculty members and about 90 postgraduate students, a favorable ratio allowing students to interact closely with academics. The research environment is an exciting one and we take pride in the high quality of our programs.

The MPhil program is a research-based degree consisting of approved coursework and an original research thesis. It is designed with flexibility in order that students may tailor course selections according to their needs and interests in the field of Chemistry.

Submission and successful defense of a thesis based on original research are required to obtain the degree.

The MA program equips students with a multidisciplinary range of knowledge about Chinese culture from the humanities perspective. These disciplines include history, literature, religion, philosophy, anthropology and linguistics. This knowledge of China is imperative to students who aspire to know more about the culture of the country. It is also an important asset to those whose careers have a close relationship with China in fields like education, government, business, industry, media, non-profit, foreign relations, academic and so on. A better understanding of the Chinese culture from a multidisciplinary perspective will greatly enhance competitiveness in the career path.
