The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK(SZ)) is a research-intensive university, established in 2014 through a Mainland - Hong Kong collaboration with staunch support from the Shenzhen Municipal Government. It inherits the fine academic traditions of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and will develop its academic programmes in phases and offer courses in Schools of Science and Engineering (SSE), Data Science (SDS), Management and Economics (SME), Life and Health Sciences (LHS), Humanities and Social Science (HSS). Students who satisfy prescribed requirements will receive degrees of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. The Ministry of Education has granted CUHK(SZ) the authority to offer postgraduate programmes up to the PhD level from the date of its establishment. The Senate of CUHK has approved the General Regulations Governing Postgraduate Studies at CUHK(SZ) in 2015.
SSE at CUHK(SZ) currently offers four undergraduate programmes (Electronic Information Engineering, New Energy Science and Engineering, Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, and Financial Engineering (jointly with SME and SDS)), one Executive Master of Science programme (Supply Chain and Logistics Management, jointly with SME), and two MPhil-PhD programmes (Computer and Information Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering). The School’s mission is to educate and train innovative and forward-thinking science and technology talents, and to become a top science and engineering school nationally and internationally.
The Programme is designed for students who wish to pursue a higher degree in the broad area of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), with a research focus on advanced structure materials, functional materials, smart materials, polymer materials, magnetic materials, Optical and optoelectronic materials and devices, many body quantum-mechanic problem, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, biomaterials, nanomaterials, composites, surface chemistry and interfacial engineering, materials modelling and simulation, materials production and processing, energy materials, materials for environmental purification, aerosol and nanoparticle engineering, green chemistry and materials life cycle. An applicant with a research master’s degree should apply for admission to the PhD Stream, while an applicant with a bachelor degree can apply for admission to either MPhil or PhD Stream. Applicants should have education background in science and engineering.
