2019 LCC International Graduate Programs Admission Information



The China-UK Low Carbon College (LCC) was established by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) with the joint efforts of the University of Edinburgh (UoE) in May 2017. Located in Lingang, Shanghai, LCC is the first college in China which pioneers in low carbon research and education. The vision of the college is to become a world-leading higher education institute with international influence, providing a platform for graduate education, scientific research, executive training, and innovation and incubation in the low carbon field.

LCC has launched Master Programmes in Low Carbon Environment and Low Carbon Energy which are fully taught in English by outstanding faculty with international education or research backgrounds from global leading universities.


Program Overview

The interdisciplinary nature of the programmes integrates the elements of low carbon technology and social science on the basis of Environment Engineering and Power Engineering. It provides a detailed understanding of Energy Systems, Environmental Policy, Business and Climate Change and Sustainable Development. LCC intends to build up a talent database of world-leading experts and scholars of the low carbon industry. The main employment sectors for our graduates are those of climate change consultancy, renewable energy and carbon management project development, as well as government and NGO climate change advisors.

* These programs are dual degree programs with the University of Edinburgh. Students can choose to spend the second year in Edinburgh if they meet the entry requirements of UoE. Students will then be awarded Master’s degree from SJTU and UoE once they fulfill the requirements of both universities.
