Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

Engineering Physics is a unique programme that focuses on the application of physics to engineering. This combination of physics with engineering enables our graduates to function flexibly and effectively in various careers.

 

Students gain the ability to analyse and solve practical/engineering problems, which prepares them for complex workplace situations, technological advances and change.

 

 

Programme Characteristics

Engineering Physics is the only programme in Hong Kong that amalgamates applied physics and engineering. We produce versatile graduates who can comfortably cope with the multifaceted global economy and fast-paced high technology.

 

Students benefit from training in both physics and engineering and from familiarisation with sophisticated equipment, including electron microscopes, lasers, solar simulator, surface coating equipment and LED characterisation instruments.

 

Student exchange programmes with academic institutions in the Chinese mainland and overseas are available. In addition, students will perform Work-Integrated Education (WIE) in the form of short-term placements, many of which are outside PolyU.

Recognition & Prospects

Career Prospects

This  programme produces graduates who are invariably well received by local and overseas employers. Our graduates work in a variety of areas from research at universities to manufacturing to telecommunication to consulting and analysis firms.  Many of our graduates go into the booming industry in testing and certification.  In addition, our graduates are in demand in the LED industry, medical engineering, aviation industry, software development and the financial sector.

Curriculum

  • The key studies are in basic and applied physics, strengthened by engineering subjects and computational physics. Supporting subjects include those in languages, computing, mathematics and management. Optoelectronics are the key areas of the Engineering component.
