Bachelor of Engineering in New Energy Science and Engineering (Honours)

Xiamen University




  • Description

    NESE is an interdisciplinary engineering programme related to the efficient, safe, environmentally friendly and economical extraction, conversion, transportation, storage and use of energy, with an aim to increase efficiency whilst minimising negative effects on humans, nature and the environment.

    The NESE programme at Xiamen University is supported by College of Energy, one of China's top-rated new energy technology research institutions for education, R&D, and technology transfer. We are supported by a strong faculty team, consisting of high-calibre researchers and engineering experts in the fields of clean chemical energy, nuclear energy, solar and wind energy, bio energy, energy economics, and energy efficiency engineering, all dedicated to high quality R&D in energy science and technologies.

    We are working closely with many leading universities such as Australian National University, University of Cincinnati and National University of Singapore, and major industry players including EDRA ENERGY, +Plus Solar, Infineon, Petronas, China Southern Power Grid and Zhejiang Electric Power Construction Co. Ltd.

    Our programme at Xiamen University Malaysia Campus aims to develop highly flexible professionals with solid specialty knowledge, who are ready for employment in energy related industries or for pursuing scholastic endeavours in the same or related fields. At the end of the programme, students will be equipped with core theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the analysis, modeling, evaluation, design, development, and implementation of energy technology.
