Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes
This programme aims to make full use of the hugely versatile applications of the in-demand disciplines of electrical engineering and civil engineering to broaden the career opportunities available to 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 relevant areas in the field of 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 to provide engineering solutions to practical problems form the core of the programme.
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.
Engineering practice is an integrated component of the curriculum. Student learning is supplemented by a variety of laboratory, training and project activities. Students also develop good presentation and problem-solving skills through mini-projects and final-year projects. Students are required to take the Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component, which may take the form of summer training or an industrial attachment.
Students can also participate in exchange programmes and spend a semester at an overseas university. Every year, a number of students participate in exchange programmes, with institutions including the Cardiff University, the National University of Singapore, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the Technical University of Munich and Czech Technical University.
Seminars, industry visits and overseas study tours are also organised to broaden students' horizons.
The programme has been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
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.
