Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes
We aim to educate professional mechanical engineers who are able to apply up-to-date technology to solve and manage multidisciplinary engineering problems for various engineering/business sectors.
Upon completion of study, graduates of the programme are expected to:
After our students have received a broad and solid foundation in areas including physics, mathematics, computing, engineering sciences, design and manufacturing, they are able to apply their knowledge and skills to certain clusters:
Students are admitted to the senior year of the 4-year degree programme. The number of credits required for graduation is 64 academic credits (plus 6 training credits)*.
* As students may need to meet specific requirements at admission, the credits required for graduation will vary according to their academic backgrounds.
The 64 academic credits consist of 9 mandatory credits of General University Requirements (GUR) and 55 credits of Discipline-Specific Requirements (DSR).
Work-Integrated Education (WIE)
To graduate, every student must complete placement training for at least 2 full weeks in a suitable organisation as fulfillment of WIE. The Department has developed opportunities for students to work in firms in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and abroad. These, and other forms of work experience, can count towards the WIE requirement.
More information on the subjects offered can be found at the following link:
The programme has been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
Because of their broad and solid knowledge in engineering and the sciences, and their ability to apply their knowledge and skills to tackle complicated multidisciplinary engineering problems, our graduates are able to start their careers as mechanical engineers, design engineers, manufacturing and process engineers, service engineers, consultant engineers or project engineers. They can find excellent employment opportunities in the aviation and aeronautical engineering industries, public utility companies, the building services sector, engineering consultancy firms, the construction industry, the environmental, electronic and manufacturing industries, the information technology sector, government departments and educational institutions.
