Innovative sustainable energy technologies with minimal environmental impact will act as a catalyst to trigger breakthrough development in many fields, ranging from greener aviation to safer electric vehicles, to longer endurance of 3C products. Studies in sustainable energy technologies focus on cutting-edge research in the related cross-disciplines, including sustainable energy harvesting and conversion technologies; high-performance energy storage systems and electric vehicles; smart energy distribution, intelligent energy systems, and energy-saving strategies; hydrogen and electrolyzers; bioenergy and bio-inspired energy systems, and lifecycle analysis and recovery of the energy system.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programme in Sustainable Energy and Environment aims to provide a solid education and rigorous research training in sustainable energy technologies, as well as prototyping and transferring original research results on our campuses as a living lab and to industrial collaborators. The programmes will also offer dynamic pedagogical training to equip students with competitive and transferrable skills in sustainable energy technologies that serve regional and national industries with a global vision.
A PhD graduate is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.
