Programme Aims

Through this programme, students will pursue in-depth studies related to civil engineering or broaden their knowledge of civil engineering by studying topics that are beyond their present field.

We are keen to develop students' abilities to design engineered systems or processes to meet the desired needs in civil engineering projects within realistic constraints.

Our programme is designed to cultivate students' strategic thinking skills in solving complex problems and dealing with situations pertinent to their professional practice, and to enhance their learning capabilities for continual professional development through inquiry and reflection on professional practice.

Programme Structure

This is a mixed-mode programme. Students can pursue their studies in either full-time or part-time mode. The programme will normally be completed in 1 year for full-time study or in 2.5 years for part-time study depending on the pace of study of individual student. They are required to attend classes in both the daytime and evening if they choose the full-time mode.

A wide range of Core Subjects in the three main study areas is available for students’ selection within the programme. Elective Subjects are off¬ered under the Postgraduate Scheme in Construction and Environment. In general, each subject requires attendance of one evening per week over a 13-week semester.

Students must complete 10 subjects (including at least 7 Core Subjects and at most 3 Elective Subjects), or 7 subjects (including at least 4 Core Subjects and at most 3 Elective Subjects), plus 9-credit Dissertation.

Part-time students are strongly advised not to take more than 3 subjects per semester due to the heavy study load.
