Programme Structure

Total number of units for graduation:

Students need a minimum of 128 units and gain an overall grade point average of at least 2.0 for graduation.  The allocation of the 128 units is as follows.

 Component Unit Requirement
 General Education Courses 31 
 Major Courses Common First-Year Science 13-16#

 }67

 Major Core 27
 Major Elective 24-27#
 Free Elective Courses 30 
 Total 128* 

#The 1-unit Integrated Science Laboratory course is compulsory for all year 1 students. But students are allowed to take only four out of the five 3-units common Year-1 science courses offered by the five science departments.  If students choose this option, they will be required to take 3 additional units of major elective courses after they have been admitted to a major programme in Year 2.  


*Of the 128 units, at least 36 units must be at Level 3 or 4.

Major Requirements:

Students are required to take a total of 67 units of major courses, which are divided into three categories, namely, Common First-Year Core (13-16 units), Major Core (27 units) and Major Elective (24-27 units).

Students seeking to pursue the study of the Physics and Green Energy (PGE) Minor Programme would need to complete 15 units of the courses listed below. They are required to take 6 units of the core courses and 9 units of the elective courses. One of the elective courses taken must be at Level-3 or above.

*Double-counting with GE Capstone

The GE capstone GCAP3035 (Interdisciplinary Independent Study (PHYS)) or GCAP3036 (Innovate for World Solutions) can be double-counted towards the PGE minor elective course requirement. So students who have completed GCAP3035 or GCAP3036 are required to take only 6 units of the PGE minor elective courses.

 

# Students of Faculty of Science are not allowed to use Introduction to Green Energy or Introduction to Physics to fulfill the PGE minor requirement.

School Life

Undergraduate students attend World Energy Engineering Congress:

The World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC) is an international energy industry conference and exposition hosted annually by the Association of Energy Engineers. It is the largest energy conference and technology expo held in the U.S. specifically for business, industrial and institutional energy users. 


Over the past few years, UG students majoring in Physics/Green Energy Science have been actively attending WEEC. They were exposed to cutting-edge energy problems and state-of-the-art energy solutions.
