In today's knowledge-based economy, companies and enterprises must compete relentlessly in terms of costs, quality and time to market themselves in the global context. Knowledge of cutting-edge management techniques, such as Logistics Management, Supply Chain Management, Six Sigma Processes, and knowledge in the effective deployment of information technology is necessary to help companies compete successfully in the global arena. In addition to these advanced management techniques, a good foundation in basic managerial training such as operations management, project management, people management and basic business management is essential in launching a management career.

This unique MSc program is the result of collaboration between the School of Engineering and the School of Business and Management. It is specially designed for professionals with technical background who wish to launch or further their career in management. This program will provide the know-how and techniques from line management to middle management, and all the way to global enterprise management.

The HKUST MSc / Postgraduate Diploma in Environmental Engineering and Management 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 beyond undergraduate-level for part-time and full-time students but also enable students to take several electives from other related programs.

Program Objectives

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.

In recent years, rapid technological advances as well as the availability of more and more well-trained personnel in the environmental engineering field have led to a stronger demand for advanced studies at the PG level in environmental engineering. The former factor means more people in the field now feel the need to keep themselves updated on the latest technologies available for solving environmental issues. The latter factor means environmental engineers now feel greater pressure to enhance their professional competency and qualification in order to stay competitive and remain occupationally mobile.

With the above background, the Postgraduate Diploma (PGD) and Master of Science (MSc) programs in Environmental Engineering and Management are meant to meet the needs of practicing engineers who may be engaged in the design, commissioning and management of environmental facilities and infrastructure systems.

Jointly offered by the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the programs are designed for those who wish to strengthen their environmental engineering and management knowledge and to well-prepare themselves for advanced engineering practices with management responsibilities. The programs not only offer advanced environmental engineering and management courses beyond undergraduate-level for part-time and full-time students but also enable students to take several electives from other related programs.
