BEng in Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management [IELM]
What is Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management?
BEng(IELM) focuses on technology and management tools which integrate the whole lifecycle of product and service design and development, procurement, operations, and logistics from raw materials to customer satisfaction. This programme aims at developing students’ ability to acquire the relevant skills for the global business environment, together with an integrated view towards problem solving in industrial, logistics and service systems.
Students will learn not only to work as good team players, but also to acquire an understanding of value-adding business activities and the necessary entrepreneurial skills to identify potential opportunities for organisations. Graduates of this programme are expected to have a keen awareness of career growth, challenges and opportunities, as well as a strong desire to be future leaders who are achievement-oriented and far-sighted.
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.
