We have a quota for admissions. Early applications are strongly encouraged. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for interviews. Offers will be made on a rolling-basis.
An incomplete application cannot be processed promptly and may reduce your chance of admission. Please complete all relevant fields on the application form and upload all necessary documents.
This programme is targeted for those who are in or are aspiring to be in senior management or principal research and development positions in companies/organisations that are involved in science, technology and engineering. The curriculum is designed to improve the candidates' skills in management of innovation and technology, enhance professional competence and expertise in specific engineering fields and strengthen capabilities in research, innovation and technology transfer from a practical perspective.
The programme comprises two equally weighted components: coursework and thesis. The coursework aims at reinforcing and expanding candidates' breadth of knowledge in management of innovation and advanced technologies. The thesis, which is company/organisation related, should make a significant contribution and/or provide innovative insights into professional practice in an engineering discipline.
The award “Doctor of Engineering” will be granted on successful completion of all subjects (as listed in curriculum) and a thesis. Graduates can use the title “Dr”.
An EngD candidate, upon graduation, should be able:
