Programme Introduction

This credit-based Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Degree Programme in Civil Engineering is designed to provide students with a broad-based and high quality interdisciplinary education in areas of environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic, structural and transportation engineering as well as construction management. This professional programme aims to nurture students as all-round civil engineers who are ready to work on engineering projects with commercial, social, legal and political complexities.

Programme Features

  • Four-year full-time comprehensive programme with a wide range of core and elective subjects;
  • Opportunity to study abroad for one to two semesters in subsidised exchange programmes at internationally famed universities;
  • Eight weeks of practical training modules in the technologically advanced Industrial Centre;
  • A minimum of four weeks of summer industrial placement in Hong Kong, Mainland China, or overseas between the third- and fourth-year of the programme;
  • Prestigious scholarships available for students with excellent academic performance.

Programme Objectives and Aims

Objectives

We prepare students as professional civil engineers. More specifically, the objectives of the programme are:

  1. To train students to master the fundamental principles, analytical and experimental techniques and design methodology of structural, geotechnical, hydraulic and environmental engineering for identifying and solving civil engineering problems within constraints;
  2. To develop students' abilities to function in teams and communicate effectively through drawing, calculations, and written and verbal presentation;
  3. To train students to appreciate the managerial, social and ethical responsibilities of professional engineers; and
  4. To train students to appreciate the need for life-long learning and keeping abreast of current issues.

Aims

This programme provides rigorous education in civil engineering that satisfies the requirements of relevant professional institutions, both local and overseas.  Emphasis is on the application of the fundamentals of applied science to solve engineering problems within a context of technical, social and economic priorities and constraints.
