Environmental Science students will learn how nature works, how people are connected to the environment, and how to prevent environmental degradation and restore damaged environment.  UIC is located in Zhuhai which is one of the cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA).   It is well known that GBA has highly developed urban cluster and also has a variety of natural habitats.   In Zhuhai such an ecological civilized city, there are many natural areas such as Chinese White Dolphin National Nature Reserve, Provincial Mangrove Nature Reserve, a very long coastline, hundreds of islands, natural wetlands, secondary forests, and plantation woodlands, many wetland parks and sponge parks etc.  All these diversified natural and artificial environments provide a desirable condition for students to learn environmental science.

UIC Environmental Science Programme has a number of specialized laboratories including Advanced Instrumental Analysis Laboratory, Environmental Technology Laboratory, Environmental Science Research Laboratory, Chemistry Laboratory, Biology and Biotechnology Laboratory, Microorganism Incubation and Fermentation Laboratory, Aquaculture Laboratory, Geographic Information System (GIS) Laboratory, etc.  Our advanced instruments include Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry (ICP), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), UV-Vis Spectrophotometers, air quality testing equipment etc.  The equipment for biological and ecological study includes a variety of sampling equipment, telescope and binoculars, a variety of microscopes, electrophoresis apparatus, laminar flow hoods, incubators, and microtome etc.  After four years of undergraduate study, students can gain valuable practical experience, and complete graduation thesis under the guidance of professors.
