Why BEng in Environmental Science and Engineering and BBA in Finance?

As the demand for professionals with expertise in environmental engineering, green finance, and Environment Social Governance (ESG) continues to rise, it has become increasingly apparent that there is a shortage of local financial professionals with expertise in ESG, as noted in the Chief Executive’s 2022 Policy Address.  Given Hong Kong’s strength as an international financial centre, it is imperative to further establish its status as a preferred ESG investment hub. Investors will likely shift their priority to companies with high ESG performance and commitment towards the carbon neutrality target. Moreover, areas like green finance and carbon emission trading are gaining importance in the financial field.

In response to the aforesaid developments, the School of Energy and Environment is proud to offer, in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Finance, a new double degree programme, the Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Science and Engineering and Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance.

Through this double degree programme, students will receive a rigorous and comprehensive education in both environmental engineering and finance.  They will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to address the challenges of sustainable finance, not just in Hong Kong but also in the global context.  By bridging the gap between these two fields, graduates of this programme will be well-prepared to tackle complex sustainability issues from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Why Bachelor of Social Sciences in Public Policy and Bachelor of Laws?

There is a legal dimension in the study of public policy. Public policy involves the legal authority to claim the right and the power to implement policy decisions. It also involves considerations and limitations as constrained by existing laws and constitution.

The legal rights of citizens are also taken into consideration when making and implementing public policies.

The Public Policy Programme consists of two streams - “Public Policy and Management” and “Political Science and Governance”. Students in the Public Policy and Management Stream can follow a study plan which would enable them to register as a licensed Property manager.
