Programme Features

The BSc (Hons) in Physics and Green Energy 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.


The Programme Intended Learning Outcomes (PILOs).
Upon completion of this study programme, students will be able to:

  1. Apply fundamental principles in physics including mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics and quantum physics;
  2. Use skills and knowledge acquired from experimental, theoretical, and computational courses;
  3. Build future careers or pursue further studies by specializing in Applied Physics or Energy Management and Technology;
  4. Analyse and solve real-world physics and energy problems;
  5. Identify the key questions, plan the investigation, and present the scientific results through independent projects and team work.
