Our Bachelor of Science in New Energy Science and Engineering is the first of its kind in China. Exploring revolutionary methods of carbon-free energy, New Energy Science and Engineering combines traditional subjects of physics, chemistry, materials science, and environmental science, as well as more specialized disciplines, such as biomolecular engineering, photochemistry, and electrochemistry. The program is designed to prepare graduates to respond to energy challenges by exploring solar energy conversion (photovoltaic, biofuel); production and storage of hydrogen and fuel cells; energy storage (battery, supercapacitor); new energy power generation (thermal power); energy efficiency and energy saving; and smart grids.
