Aims & Characteristics

Two full-time programmes are offered under this scheme:

  • BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management (BSc LEM); and
  • BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Engineering with Management (BSc EEM).

 

BSc LEM

Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes

Managing logistics is an interesting but complex task. It involves the effective management of materials, information and finance in a network of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and customers.

 

This programme aims to produce logistics engineers and professionals who are competent in the design, implementation, control and execution of logistics systems and related technologies, and to develop students' ability to manage complex business, logistics and technology systems for increasingly technology-enabled logistics businesses.

 

Programme Characteristics

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University possesses a broad array of expertise and talent that spans the whole spectrum of logistics. This programme provides comprehensive training in logistics, in areas ranging from logistics systems, facility design, logistics information systems and supply chain management to operations management. It also provides essential general management and business skills that are needed to manage and run modern logistics companies.

 

In addition to the academic curriculum, Work-Integrated Education (WIE) is incorporated into the programme to ensure that students gain real-life work experience that is relevant to their studies. This serves to enable students to better understand the relevance of their academic studies and to enhance all-round development.

 

Summer placement opportunities may be provided to students to enable them to gain practical work experience.

 

Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Student Exchange Programme with universities in countries such as the United States, Canada, Sweden and Finland for one semester.

 

BSc EEM

Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes

Enterprises are organizations, industrial and commercial, that shape the modern economy. This programme aims at providing a body of knowledge, principles and disciplines that are related to the analysis, design, implementation and operation of the critical elements associated with the effective operation of modern enterprises. To be successful in today's highly competitive global business environment, an enterprise should be willing to undertake new ventures and be able to continuously optimize its operations.

 

This programme aims to turn out a new generation of professionals with the entrepreneurship skills and the capability of integrating and applying engineering, business management and information technology expertise to optimize the operations of modern information based enterprises and the workflows along the business value chains in which they operate.

 

Graduates from this course are capable of formulating problems, recognizing the areas in an enterprise in which improvements are necessary, and devising and implementing strategies that are aimed at producing solutions for the enhancement of its business efficiencies and effectiveness. They enable the enterprise to deliver quality goods and services that meet or exceed customer demands in today’s modern business environment.

 

Programme Characteristics

The Curriculum

The programme curriculum is designed to suit students from Arts, Commerce and Science backgrounds. It provides a unique and integrative discipline of studies that aims at preparing graduates who are competent in Enterprise Engineering, Information Technology and Management. The curriculum also contains subjects such as Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Integrative Studies in Enterprise Systems and Management, which are aimed at equipping students with the principles and hands-on experience needed to develop business plans in starting up new businesses. A competition is held each year in the ISE Department for the best business plan, with industrialists invited to join academic staff members on the judging panel.

 

Teaching Approach and Support Facilities

Our teaching uses a student-centred and problem-based learning approach, and is conducted with the support of the most advanced facilities in the region, including the PolyU Microsoft Enterprise Systems Centre. The Centre has laboratories in Business Automation, Logistics and Simulation, and Knowledge Solutions.

 

Work-Integrated Education

In addition to the normal curriculum, Work-Integrated Education (WIE) has been incorporated into the programme. The Department also makes every effort to secure industrial summer training placements for students during their studies. These placements enable students to gain practical work experience.

 

Student Exchange to Overseas Universities

Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Student Exchange Programme with universities in North America, Europe and Asia, including the Chinese mainland. The usual duration of the exchange is one semester.

 

 

Recognition & Prospects

BSc LEM

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted provisional accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) as a professional engineering degree programme recognized by other Washington Accord signatories.

 

The Washington Accord is an international agreement between bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes.  Currently, it has 18 signatories, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and New Zealand.

 

The programme has been granted accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) since 2009.
