BEng in Mechanical  Engineering

What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical engineering plays a vital role in all engineering systems that involve moving parts, such as aeroplanes, buildings, automobile, medical equipment, power plants, robots, to name just a few.

The degree of BEng in Mechanical Engineering aims to train up our graduates for the prosperous professional paths open to them. It is broadly based to allow students to acquire a basic engineering science knowledge, such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, materials technology, dynamics & control. It is also flexible enough to enable students to specialize in areas of their own interest for instance aeronautical engineering, biomedical engineering, control & robotic, energy & environment, mechanics & materials, nanotechnology, product design & manufacture as well as thermo-fluids for developing the specific knowledge and career profile.

  • Programme
    Civil 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 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.
