[JS6262] BEng in Data Science and Engineering
Fast emerging data science and engineering technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and big data infrastructure boost the transformative impact of big data on businesses, industries and society.
The BEng(DS&E) programme is a professional degree in Data Science and Engineering offered by the Department of Computer Science, with support from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Department of Mathematics, and Faculty of Law.
The curriculum is built upon a fine combination of foundation courses in data science, computing, mathematics, statistics, and law, and is designed to provide students with advanced training in both theory and practice in Data Science and Engineering. It is also unique in its emphasis on data privacy, ethical and legal issues for the data science profession, and privacy-preserving techniques. Students may also pursue a minor in a data-intensive field,
ProgrammeCivil Engineering is the science and art of utilising natural resources and power for the beneficial use of mankind. Civil Engineers are responsible for the design, construction and safe-keeping of our infrastructure and built environment. They ensure that our buildings, roads and bridges are safe and effective, our slopes are safe from failures, our stormwater drainage systems are adequate to prevent flooding, our wastewater is collected, and treated properly to protect our environment, and all components of our infrastructure are functioning in a safe, comfortable and sustainable manner. The 4-year programme provides students with the academic qualification towards the professional status of a Civil Engineer. The Main Subject Areas of studies included: 1. Construction Management 2. Environmental Engineering (e.g. wastewater treatment, solid waste treatment) 3. Geotechnical engineering (e.g. engineering geology, soil mechanics, foundation design) 4. Structural engineering (e.g. analysis and design of concrete and steel structures) 5. Transportation Engineering
Professional RecognitionThe 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 ProspectsOur 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.
