    What is energy engineering?

    Energy engineering addresses the pressing energy issues and the associated environmental problems in the modern society. The ever-increasing energy demand and dependence of fossil fuels has led to challenges like energy security, pollution and climate change. Energy engineering transcends the boundaries of traditional engineering disciplines to address these intricate issues with innovative solutions.

    Key areas in energy engineering include
    - Energy management and efficiency
    - Renewable energy
    - Energy storage and distribution
    - Energy-related pollution control and treatment

    Energy engineering is extremely diverse and attracts people with different interests and talents. Specific problems may require specialised knowledge of materials science, electrical engineering, chemical engineering or mechanical engineering.

    What do energy engineering students learn?

    To prepare students for their future careers, the Bachelor of Engineering in Energy Science and Engineering (ESE) comprises courses in science and engineering and energy applications. Students will study topics like energy efficiency in buildings, renewable energy technology, energy storage and distribution, as well as experimental and computational techniques. Since energy issues and the energy-related environmental problems cannot be considered in isolation, students will also be trained in economics, policy, pollution treatment and environmental impact assessment.

    Established in July 2009 as the first dedicated school of its kind in Hong Kong, City University's School of Energy and Environment (SEE) aspires to be a leading school in Asia to foster an interdisciplinary approach in developing sustainable energy and environmental technologies, with a special focus on megacities like Hong Kong and its neighbouring regions.

    SEE also stands for sustainability, energy, and environment. Aligning with CityU’s research theme of Smart Cities and One Health, the School focuses on three main strategic areas : Sustainable Technologies for Energy, Environment and Health; Urban Atmospheric and Aquatic Environment : science and policies; and Systems Approach to Smart and Healthy Cities : Nexus of Energy, Climate, and Environment. Our interdisciplinary efforts capitalize on our faculty’s special expertise in climate change and air pollution, building and energy efficiency, innovative environmental treatment processes, waste to energy, renewable energy, power management, and sustainability policies and economics.
