What will I learn?

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) Program focuses on strengthening students' background in the fundamentals of mechanical and aerospace engineering and exposing them to the environment of academic research and development. A candidate for an MPhil degree is expected to demonstrate knowledge in the discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making a contribution to the field.

Energy Technology Concentration

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 research postgraduate 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 are equipped with the necessary knowledge and experience. The Energy Technology Concentration covers different disciplines including Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Decision Analytics and Mechanical Engineering. Students can enroll in a particular discipline for research with a special focus on topic(s) in Energy Technology.

The School of Engineering has introduced an Energy Technology Concentration in different disciplines with the following research foci and facilities.
