Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This programme aims to make full use of the hugely versatile applications in the in-demand disciplines of electrical engineering and civil engineering to broaden the career opportunities for our graduates. Students are expected to acquire a solid understanding of the fundamentals of electrical engineering and civil engineering, and apply the knowledge gained and techniques learned to the relevant areas in transportation systems.

 

The programme philosophy focuses on the incorporation of up-to-date engineering knowledge into transportation systems to enhance the efficiency, reliability, safety and maintainability of infrastructure and services. Current practices in transportation, the latest technologies in transportation systems and their integration in the provision of engineering solutions for practical problems form the core of the programme.

 

Programme Characteristics

This programme is unique in Hong Kong, providing students with interdisciplinary knowledge and perspectives with a direct career path into the high growth transportation industry and related sectors.

Recognition & Prospects

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted provisional accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).

 

Career Prospects

Graduates are expected to receive attractive offers from various government departments, public and private transportation service providers, civil, electrical and transportation engineering consultancies, and construction companies. They are well equipped to work in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and overseas.

Curriculum

  • The first year introduces the concepts of engineering, other general studies and language subjects for our students.
  • The second year focuses on the fundamentals of engineering in general, and introduces students to accounting and economics.
  • In the third year of study, essential knowledge of transportation systems, such as system analysis, planning, and technical subjects from various engineering disciplines, is covered.
  • During their final year, students take 4 Core subjects in transportation systems and two Elective subjects on advanced or specialised topics of transportation. Students may choose individual projects which are relevant to transportation systems engineering.
  • Information on the subjects offered can be obtained at www.ee.polyu.edu.hk.
