This programme aims to provide students and produce highly skilled graduates with:
The Aviation Engineering programme aims to train students to become aeronautical and aviation engineers with strong skills in and understanding of engineering and with engineering management and social responsibility for the society and the environment. Upon completion of this programme, graduates will be able to pursue a career in aircraft component design and engineering, aircraft maintenance engineering, aviation engineering operations and management and many other areas.
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
The students receive a broad education in mathematics and science, and learn about their role and responsibilities as an engineer, providing them with a strong foundation to learn aviation engineering-dedicated subjects in the years that follow.
Second Study Year
The students acquire fundamental knowledge of aircraft and aviation systems and gain hands-on experience in aircraft component manufacturing and maintenance processes.
Third Study Year
The students embark on more advanced subjects such as aircraft design, aviation safety, stability and control, propulsion systems and avionics systems.
Final Study Year
The students have the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge in their final year project and focus their study on a desired elective stream to acquire specialized 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, onsite 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 covers a wide range of aviation engineering and societal knowledge including
Students are required to spend at least 2 weeks of full-time WIE training in a suitable organization before graduation.
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 including aircraft component design, manufacturing and maintenance organizations, in air transportation and logistics organizations, airport engineering operation and civil aviation authorities.
