    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 efficiencyRenewable 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.

    What is environmental engineering?
    Environmental engineering is concerned with the solution of environmental problems. Examples include
    - Air pollution
    - Marine pollution
    - Water treatment
    - Waste and recycling
    - Sustainability
    Nowadays environmental engineering is becoming increasingly important. With the challenges posed by urbanisation and climate change, environmental engineers are needed to safeguard human health, protect the environment and help build a sustainable society. Environmental engineering is an exciting and rewarding career for young people who want to use their technical skills to improve society.
    Environmental engineering is extremely diverse and attracts people with different interests and talents. Specific problems may require specialised knowledge of biology, chemical engineering or mechanical engineering. Environmental engineers may work in the field, laboratory or office.
    What do environmental engineering students learn?
    To prepare students for their future careers, the Bachelor of Engineering in Environmental Science and Engineering (EVE) comprises courses in science, engineering and environmental applications. Hence students will study air pollution, wastewater treatment and water resources, among other topics, as well as experimental and computational techniques. Since environmental problems cannot be considered in isolation, students will also be trained in sustainability, environmental management and environmental impact assessment.

    城大能源及環境學院院長陳澤強教授指出,全球不少地區已承諾在2050年達到碳中和,向零碳排放的目標邁進。因此,世界各地對具備能源及環境知識的人才需求殷切。學院教授的專業範疇包括能源研發、可持續發展、工程及政策研究等,為培育跨學科人才作出貢獻。

    陳院長續指:「能源及環境相關的可持續發展項目不再局限於製造業或工程界別,如零售業可在減塑節能上提出對環境友善的做法;旅遊業可運用『碳信用(carbon credit)』抵銷旅遊所產生的碳足跡;金融業也能透過『綠色金融』,提供綠色科研的風險轉移顧問意見,或拒絕融資予破壞環境的企業等。此類新興工種需要具備能源及環境專業知識,以及經濟和政策之專才。各國政府及企業將期望招攬具跨學科知識、又能提出嶄新且多元解決方案的人才。」

    為幫助學生培養學術知識以外的軟實力,學院提供大量海外交流機會,更與多間企業合作,提供講座、實習或職業培訓等。課程歡迎熱衷科學並勇於接受新挑戰的學生報讀。 【更多…】 https://jump.mingpao.com/career-news/news/%E6%89%93%E9%80%A0industry-ready%E5%B7%A5%E7%A8%8B%E5%B0%88%E6%89%8D-%E5%AF%A6%E8%B8%90%E7%B6%A0%E8%89%B2%E4%BD%BF%E5%91%BD-%E7%94%B1%E5%9F%8E%E5%A4%A7%E8%83%BD%E6%BA%90%E5%8F%8A/

    能源短缺、環境污染、全球氣候轉變等議題備受世界各國關注,任何人都不能獨善其身!關注環保的林子傑(Harry)及丘凱怡(Felice),不約而同選讀了香港城市大學(下稱「城大」)能源及環境學院的「能源及環境學院【選項:工學士(能源科學及工程學)、工學士(環境科學及工程學)】」課程(聯招編號:JS1051),期望利用所學貢獻社會,推動可持續發展。前者已投身職場,於美國電動車充電服務初創公司任職能源數據分析師;後者則積極參加工作實習,為投身業界做好準備。 【更多…】 https://jump.mingpao.com/career-news/news/%E6%89%93%E9%80%A0industry-ready%E5%B7%A5%E7%A8%8B%E5%B0%88%E6%89%8D-%E5%AF%A6%E8%B8%90%E7%B6%A0%E8%89%B2%E4%BD%BF%E5%91%BD-%E7%94%B1%E5%9F%8E%E5%A4%A7%E8%83%BD%E6%BA%90%E5%8F%8A/
