Quality Assurance at HKUST
EVMT Intended Learning Outcomes
Drawing on HKUST’s expertise in science, engineering, management and social sciences, the EVMT program examines environmental issues from multiple perspectives. This enables students to integrate different points of view in their evaluation and generation of ideas and solutions. In addition to investigating environmental and sustainability issues on local, regional and global levels, students will also have an opportunity to study specially designed courses in pertinent environmental subjects such as environmental technology, environmental law, corporate accounting and auditing, green business, energy resources and sustainable development, among others. Theories are put into practice through case studies or placement programs like the Capstone Project, where students work with companies and NGOs to tackle real-world problems.
EVMT students are expected to:
- Integrate knowledge and skills across subjects and perceive connections between disciplinary domains in understanding of problems;
- Develop multi-dimensional perspectives and problem-solving skills that allow them to tackle cross-cultural and multi-faceted issues with a holistic approach;
- Have the critical skills to communicate effectively with people of different levels and work areas within and across organizations;
- Possess a distinctive skill mix that enables them to excel and contribute in different industries;
- Have the potential to be caring leaders of society;
- Demonstrate proficiency in their knowledge of advanced environmental technologies, environmental management practices and the interface between these technologies and society, business and policy;
- Formulate effective and innovative solutions to environmental problems by integrating and applying concepts from environmental technology, management and sustainable development;
- Understand professional responsibilities and ethical environmental standards and how to exercise them in roles of environmental leaders, policy makers and technical managers.
