The credit requirements for this programme are indicative only. They are subject to review.
This programme aims to produce highly skilled graduates with:
The Aviation Engineering programme aims to train students to become aeronautical and aviation engineers with strong skills in and in-depth knowledge of engineering and engineering management, as well as a sense of social and environmental responsibility. Graduates will be able to pursue careers in aircraft component design and engineering, aircraft maintenance engineering, aviation engineering operations and management and many other areas.
This programme has been granted provisional accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Full accreditation will be sought in 2020.
Graduates will be able to seek employment as professional engineers in aviation engineering fields such as aircraft component design, manufacturing and maintenance, in-air transportation and logistics, airport engineering operation and civil aviation.
Academic and Training Credits
The 124 academic credits consist of 30 mandatory credits of General University Requirements (GUR) and 94 credits of Discipline-Specific Requirements (DSR).
First Study Year
Students receive a broad education in mathematics and science, and learn about the role and responsibilities of an engineer, providing them with a strong foundation for learning subjects dedicated to aviation engineering in the years that follow.
Second Study Year
Students acquire fundamental knowledge of aircraft and aviation systems and gain hands-on experience of aircraft component manufacturing and maintenance.
Third Study Year
Students embark on more advanced subjects such as aircraft design, aviation safety, stability and control, propulsion systems and avionics systems.
Final Study Year
Students have the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge in their final-year project and focus on a desired elective stream to acquire specialised knowledge.
Stream of Study
Students can choose to pursue one of the following study streams:
* Students who opt-for HKAR147 (B1.1) licenced aircraft engineer training are required to choose the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering stream.
** Students who are interested in attending the Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence (ATPL) upon graduation are strongly recommended to attend these four electives.
Other Learning Experiences
Summer internships, industrial visits, on-site experience sharing and industrial training are arranged to complement classroom teaching and enhance students’ learning and industrial experience in the field of aeronautics and aviation. Industrial training is provided by the PolyU Industrial Centre.
The programme provides aviation engineering and societal knowledge in a wide range of areas, including:
Students are required to receive at least two weeks of full-time WIE training in a suitable organisation before graduation.
