BEng (Hons) Scheme in Mechanical Engineering


(For 2017/2018 onwards intake)

To get our graduates fully prepared for technological challenges of the 21st-century, the new BEng (Hons) Scheme is tailor-made to produce graduates who are broad-based and knowledgeable in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering. The curriculum will provide a holistic education which is outcome-based, work-integrated, professionally and globally-oriented. Graduates will be able to take responsibilities as professionals in industrials and government organizations. 

There are two awards operating under the BEng (Hons) ME Scheme: 

Students admitted into the BEng (Hons) ME Scheme will study together for the first two years and then complete their preferred award (either BEngME or BEngPAED) in the next two years until graduation. Under such arrangement, students are able to make their choice of study after they have obtained better understanding of the two programmes. 

The first year of the Scheme follows the common first year curriculum widely adopted throughout the Engineering Faculty. It includes fundamentals in physics, mathematics and information-technology. In addition, enhancements in languages and General Education are also provided. The Scheme curriculum of the second year is common for both BEngME or BEngPAED awards. In addition to fundamentals in materials engineering, engineering mechanics, electricity and electronics, computing, engineering design, enhancements in mathematics, languages and general education are provided. In addition to studying the same academic subjects, students will undertake the same industrial training programmes during the first two years.
