BSc (Hons) in Green Energy and Smart Technology (GEST)

The BSc (Hons) in Physics and Green Energy (PGE) aims at preparing students for a career in Physics and/or in the energy sector that involves applications of scientific principles and technology.  In addition to the university-wide whole person education, the specific objectives are to equip students with:

  1. A solid and broad foundation in physics to build up their careers or to pursue further studies;
  2. Experimental, theoretical, and computational skills to meet the needs and challenges of contemporary society;
  3. Analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.

For students joining this programme at Year 2 in the AY22-23, they are expected to opt for the Applied Physics Concentration.
