Programme Introduction

The construction industry and infrastructure development in Hong Kong and Mainland China are expected to continue growing rapidly. These generate a consistently increasing demand for well-trained civil engineering technicians. This credit-based Higher Diploma Programme in Civil Engineering is designed to provide students with a broad-based and 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 engineering technologists. It also provides students with a sound education background for pursuit of higher levels of study. 

Programme Features

  • Two-year full-time comprehensive programme.
  • Eight weeks of practical training modules in the technologically advanced Industrial Centre of the University.
  • Possible admission to third year of BEng(Hons) in Civil Engineering Programme of the University after graduation.

Programme Aims

Aims

This programme provides training for students to become engineering technologists, who are conversant with basic engineering principles and technical know-how that can support civil engineers engaged in designing and executing construction projects, such as reclamation, highways, dams, bridges, tunnels, water supply and drainage systems. The programme also serves as a preparation for graduates to pursue higher levels of study in civil engineering. Emphasis is laid on the application of the fundamentals of applied science to the understanding of engineering problems within a context of technical, social and economic priorities and constraints.
