The UST - International Doctoral Program in Environmental Science and Technology (UST-EST) provides the most advanced graduate study program in interdisciplinary environmental research from the global scale to the molecular level. All courses will be taught in English by a team of outstanding scholars with the further distinction of providing unmatched Chinese-speaking surroundings and learning facilities. To ensure the highly cross-discipline nature of the environmental study, all first-year students will take entry-level courses related to the four major topics, i.e., health science, physical chemistry, engineering, and remote sensing techniques, before moving to specialized research work.

Also, this program provides also the unique opportunity of joining collaborative projects in different UST campuses, either in national or international arenas. Counting together, UST has established bilateral scientific partnerships with academic institutions in the US, Germany, France, UK, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Canada, South Korea, Dominica Republic, and Iceland, just to name a few. For multilateral collaborations, Taiwan is a key player in the Seven South East Asian Studies (7-SEAS) Project and the main driver for the COSMIC Meteorology Satellites Mission.

The UST-EST Doctoral Program is therefore well prepared to train the next-generation leaders in the study, communications, and management of critical issues in environmental pollution and climate change. Please come join us!
