BEng in Computer Science

What is Computer Science?

The BEng(CompSc) programme is a programme that offers a solid education in the fundamental and essential areas of computing.  It is a timely and practical curriculum that is essential for aspiring students and future IT professionals. On completion of this curriculum, students will be well-equipped with both basic and advanced knowledge in computer science, which aims to better prepare students to launch their career in the IT industry and/or to pursue postgraduate studies in this area.


Computer science is a fast-growing discipline. Its importance is evident in the profound impact that the use of computers has on our lives. Computer science education is now as indispensable as any of the traditional programmes in any established university.


Highlights of the programme:

Flexibility – Students can use elective credits to satisfy a second major or a minor programme.

Research opportunities – Outstanding students will have the opportunities to undertake research projects supervised by renowned professors.

Capstone Experience – Students have to join an internship in the industry and work on a final project which could be a research-based or software-development or industry-based project.

  • Programme
    The 4-year Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering (CivE) provides students with the academic qualification towards the professional status of a Civil Engineer. Students also have the option to take various Minor programmes from within or outside of the Faculty of Engineering. In the CivE programme, students will learn and acquire the required knowledge in the following areas, in addition to various common core and language courses: Background mathematics and applied science courses including structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, material science and environmental studies Structural engineering courses, e.g., analysis and design of concrete and steel structures Geotechnical engineering courses, e.g., engineering geology, solid mechanics, foundation design Hydraulic and hydrology courses, e.g., water cycle, flows in ducts and channels Environmental engineering courses, e.g., wastewater treatment, solid waste management Construction management courses Transportation engineering courses Discipline group projects, Individual Final Year Projects and Capstone Design Projects
  • Professional Recognition
    The BEng(CivE) programme is fully accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Honours degree graduates meet the academic requirements for corporate membership of HKIE. Most of our graduates become corporate members of HKIE and obtain the status of Registered Professional Engineer after three or more years of approved working experience.
  • Career Prospects
    Our graduates have been contributing to the design, construction and safe-keeping of the impressive infrastructure in Hong Kong as well as in other places of the world. Most of our graduates are employed by works departments in the Hong Kong Government, engineering consultant firms and construction companies. They work on all types of infrastructure development projects; such as those related to highways projects, transportation-related projects, building projects, water supply projects, drainage and flood prevention projects, environmental engineering and pollution control projects.
