The exact study duration and number of credits to be transferred will depend on the entry qualifications of individual AD/HD admittees.
Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes
Engineering Physics is a unique programme that focuses on the application of physics to engineering. This combination of physics with engineering enables our graduates to perform flexibly and effectively in various careers.
Students gain the ability to analyse and solve practical engineering problems, which prepares them for complex workplace situations and technological advancements.
Engineering Physics is the only programme in Hong Kong that amalgamates applied physics and engineering. We produce versatile graduates who can comfortably cope with Hong Kong's fast-paced and multifaceted economy as it evolves into a high-tech and high value-added productivity centre.
Students benefit from training in both physics and engineering and from familiarity with sophisticated equipment, including electron microscopes, lasers, surface coating equipments and LED characterisation instruments.
Student exchange programmes with academic institutions in the Chinese mainland and overseas are available. In addition, students will perform Work-Integrated Education (WIE) in the form of short-term placements, many of which are outside PolyU.
Normally, students have to complete a minimum of 30 credits of General University Requirement (GUR) subjects and a minimum of 95 credits of Discipline Specific Requirement (DSR) subjects to fulfil the graduation requirement. However, senior year students can apply for credit transfer (up to a maximum of 60 credits) based on their previous studies in AD/HD programmes and their academic performance.
The features of the programme are as follows:
The sample of the curriculum can be accessed here for reference. Students may be required to take additional foundation subjects according to their academic attainment in their previous AD/HD studies.
This programme produces graduates who are invariably well received by local and overseas employers. Our graduates work in a variety of areas, from research at universities to manufacturing, telecommunication and business, e.g. in consulting and analysis firms. Many of our graduates go into the booming industry in testing and certification. In addition, our graduates are in demand in the LED industry, medical engineering, the aviation industry, software development and the financial sector.
An Associate Degree in Applied Science or Engineering, or a Higher Diploma in Applied Physics, Applied Optics, Optical Technology or Engineering in relevant areas.
Applicants will be shortlisted for interviews to evaluate their suitability, interest and ability in relation to the programme, and to determine their communication and all-round skills.
