Many related industries such as photovoltaics, wind power, carbon emission measurement, and environmental management have emerged, creating many new jobs and a great demand for talents. This taught master program is based on the Master of Science in Green Technology (Energy) program established by the Hong Kong Baptist University in 2011 (referred to as the "GTE program" for short). It adopts the same curriculum system and is jointly offered by the Faculty of Science and Technology of UIC and the Department of Physics of Hong Kong Baptist University. The design of curriculum starts from the basics and gradually progresses, making it suitable for students from different professional backgrounds, such as various engineering and business-related majors. After completion of courses, students will receive a certificate issued by the Hong Kong Baptist University.

It focuses more on cultivating students' abilities in data analysis and management in the new energy industry. Students have the opportunity to choose to complete their graduation projects in different large-scale new energy enterprises in the Greater Bay Area during their studies.
