Student Message


Many people have never heard of logistics, but it is everywhere in our daily lives – from small gadgets to the machinery at a building site. I am honoured to be one of the students in the Logistics Engineering with Management programme. In our first year, we have interesting and useful Cluster-Area Requirements and Leadership subjects that sharpen our skills and nourish our personal development.

I initially felt nervous while I was getting used to life at PolyU. Luckily, Dr Choy, the Programme Leader, really cares for his students and was willing to spend time talking to us. Everyone I have met at PolyU has been so friendly, always willing to help you when you are in need. I now feel excited and energised about my life at PolyU.

I have joined a number of programmes, such as the exchange tour to Beijing in the summer, different talks organised by famous speakers and serving as a student helper at PolyU events. These programmes have helped me get to know the campus and broaden my horizons. I would like to thank everyone I have met at PolyU. Without you, my life here would not be so fruitful. I look forward to receiving more treasured opportunities in the future.

The curriculum of the BSc(Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management (LEM) programme incorporates the study of logistics, engineering and business. It aims to provide students with a comprehensive education through a variety of learning opportunities, such as field trips. To sharpen students’ competitive edge in the job market, the programme also puts significant emphasis on the development of their presentation and organisation skills.

 

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers many additional opportunities for students to widen their horizons and apply the knowledge acquired through their studies to their daily lives and careers. During the summer holiday, I was pleased to be given the chance to join a study tour to mainland China. The trip taught me many practical skills including interpersonal, communication and problem-solving skills, all of which will play important roles in my future career.

 

Finally, I am proud to serve as the class representative for LEM. Meeting with professors and sharing students’ comments on the curriculum helps me to build closer relationships with both parties and develop a strong sense of belonging to the department. I am glad to be studying at PolyU and I believe my education here will equip me well for a brighter future.

The BSc(Hons) in Enterprise Engineering with Management programme provided me with a diverse study environment at university. It not only equipped me with academic knowledge but also encouraged my personal growth. Most importantly, this course cultivates business-engineering professionals with structured mindsets, through its various subjects and projects.

 

In 2015, our group joined the Business Plan Competition, and we were required to propose a new business opportunity with a detailed plan, and we were the first runners up. My FYP was in cooperation with the Hong Kong Fire Services Department, and I developed informative and interactive e-learning courseware for them. This gave me the valuable experience of applying my learnt skills to a real-life situation. I also participated in study tours to places such as Korea and Beijing. I was also involved in voluntary service, and was a student helper on information day and at a large-scale international seminar.

 

The rapid changes that affect us all present new challenges every day. We realise that in addition to traditional learning we must be good team players and work with flexibility. In my present career – in the finance and marketing industry – I am given opportunities to work with people from all walks of life and handle different projects. My university life prepared me for this – I worked with people from different backgrounds, managed jobs analytically and became a fast learner.


Chong Shu Fong



The BSc(Hons) in Enterprise Engineering with Management programme offered me practical experience and many valuable opportunities at university, and it also broadened my horizons.

 

In addition to the comprehensive knowledge related to enterprise engineering and business management, the programme provided me with various chances to participate in different kinds of events, including but not limited to a study tour to Taiwan, an exchange programme in Finland, and several competitions like HKEPC 2017, so that I could further consolidate and apply my professional knowledge and the skills learnt. Thus, I am able to demonstrate a global outlook and an understanding regarding enterprise management, so as to facilitate organisational decision making and problem solving in the future.

 

The enriched programme undoubtedly helped me gain advantages in the highly competitive job market. I am a management trainee in DHL Global Forwarding (Hong Kong) Limited, and have applied the professional knowledge I learnt in the programme such as project management and strategic management, and it has helped me to deal with challenges and management issues in the organisation with confidence. I can therefore always further improve my performance and obtain better outcomes.

 

I am extremely glad to be a graduate of the programme. It gave me an all-round education, and the development opportunities allowed me to grow as a professional enterprise engineer.
