[JS6951] BEng in Engineering Science
What is Engineering Science?
The BEng in Engineering Science programme is a unique science-based programme that aims to train future engineers and innovation leaders with solid engineering skills and in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge to meet major global challenges facing mankind. It is a multidisciplinary programme that offers a wide range of career prospects.
Among all the programmes of HKU Engineering, BEng(EngSc) is special. It is the most flexible engineering programme in Hong Kong. It uses a major/minor structure. Students choose one of the five majors, and then study the second major in one of the remaining four majors, or the second major and/or minor(s) offered by the Faculty of Engineering or other faculties.
In this programme, the small cohort of students has support from the professors of all engineering departments. Students can build a strong network for their professional development.

Major in Materials Engineering, Minor in Physics and Mathematics
Summer Research Internship at Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science
The BEng in Engineering Science programme provides students with a chance to expand horizon in various fields. I took courses about alloys, semiconductors, bio-materials, optical materials, and also selected curriculums in interested disciplines. The broad vision in multiple fields helps me a lot in research. During the research internship at Harvard, knowledge in physics and materials helped me get familiar with the topic quickly. In addition, this research experience taught me the importance of being an independent researcher.

First Major: Energy Engineering, Second Major: Global Studies, Minor: Finance
Internship at New World Development Company Limited
Apart from engineering, I have taken courses in finance, business and social sciences which cultivate a broad knowledge base. During my internship at the New World Development Company Limited, I was able to use my multidisciplinary background to look at things from a different perspective and solve problems. I would recommend students interested in gaining exposure beyond engineering to pursue Engineering Science.

Summer Internships at Swire Properties (June-July 2015) & Gammon Construction Limited (August 2015)
The 3 months having internship at Swire Properties and Gammon would definitely be one of the most eyeopening and exciting summer breaks I have had in my life. My summer internship with Swire Properties allowed me to understand how sustainability was managed and practiced in the commercial sector in a corporate level. This was quite different from my training with Gammon which focused on on-site environmental and monitoring measures in construction projects. The flexible curriculum structure enables me to pursue a more diverse career in both managerial and practical role in the field of environmental engineering
