PhD in Environmental Science, Policy and Management The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
We are living in a world facing serious interrelated environmental problems, including climate change, pervasive pollution, reduction in biodiversity, and looming supply constraints for a number of key natural resources. Individually, and especially in combination, these issues pose serious challenges to sustainable development.
The Division of Environment has been created to meet such challenges. Our faculty members have diverse backgrounds in science, engineering, business, and social sciences to provide integrated and cutting-edge education and research on global environmental issues and emerging solutions.
This is a broad-based research postgraduate program that embraces a wide spectrum of environmental interests. It serves as an innovative platform for interdisciplinary research involving scientific, technological, environmental socio-economic, and policy challenges.
It provides students with the background to solve complex environmental problems and to engage in interdisciplinary environmental research that can have a high impact on Hong Kong and the world.
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program aims to train students in original research in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, and to cultivate independent, interdisciplinary, and innovative thinking that is essential for a successful research career in environmental science, policy, and management research, and formulation.
