- BEng (Honours) Degree Programme in Civil Engineering (4 years full time)
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.
Provisional recognition has been granted to the programme by The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Graduates are eligible for coporate membership of the HKIE after gaining appropriate training.
- BEng (Honours) Degree Programme in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Development (4 years full time)
Rapid urbanisation and infrastructure development will continue in Hong Kong and Mainland China in the next decade. Environmental protection and sustainable development will become the central focus of the long-term development in the region. Professionals in the field of environment and sustainable development will be in high demand. This programme is the first of its kind offered by Hong Kong institutions, with emphasis on both environment and sustainable development.
In addition to knowledge of environmental engineering and management, economics, sustainable urban development and public policy are adequately covered in this programme. Graduates of this programme will be able to devise practical solutions to environmental problems as well as to contribute to policy formulation which will lead to sustainable development. We prepare students for careers as environmental engineers and sustainable development professionals in different sectors, such as government departments, professional consultants, and management firms.
