Last week IIES Director Dr Douglas Evans attended the launch of the first Low Carbon College in China. The College is a joint initiative between two IIES member universities, the University of Edinburgh and Shanghai Jiao tong.
The college is located in the low carbon city of Lingang, south of Shanghai and offers programs in Carbon Environment and Carbon Energy, highlighted courses include, carbon resources cycle, new energy systems, carbon economics and business and climate change.
The program is unique in that it offers two Master degrees from these highly ranked universities and will only take two and a half years to complete. The program allows students to complete one year in Shanghai and one year in Edinburgh, offering a diverse and well-rounded education in the low carbon fields. The final half year will be completed at Shanghai Jiao tong.
