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:

  • Adopt an inter-disciplinary approach to tackle complex real-world problems;
  • Communicate effectively with people of different levels and work areas;
  • Transfer acquired knowledge to meet changes and challenges in different fields;
  • Engage in activities that lead to impact of social improvement;
  • Have the ability to create and innovate with divergent thinking;
  • 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.
