Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims

This programme is pertinent to Hong Kong's current economic and social situation, namely, the CEPA with the Chinese mainland's entrance to the WTO, the rapid development in product development and analysis, the persistent pressure caused by environmental pollution, and the increasing need of qualified graduates in aerospace engineering. The programme prepares students to face these challenges and to take the initiative to mould the future of Greater China, including Hong Kong in particular.

 

With these aims, we also welcome students with first degrees from other engineering disciplines, the physical sciences and mathematics.

 

Benefiting from strong research and a commitment to quality teaching, our graduates are prepared to take up leadership roles in mechanical engineering, air/noise pollution management, product development and analysis, aerospace engineering and green energy.

 

Characteristics

This programme allows students to take subjects in related technical fields, such as mechanical engineering, air pollution control, noise pollution control, product development and analysis, aerospace engineering, green energy, computers, marketing, management, etc. It also allows students to take a combination of subjects that lead to an award with a specialism.

 

Students have the flexibility to vary their studies from semester to semester according to their personal aspirations (except for non-local students, who are constrained by visa requirements). For example, a local student can study full-time in one semester and choose to switch to part-time study in the next semester, and vice versa. Students can manage their own pace of study, subject to certain registration and assessment regulations.

Recognition & Prospects

The graduates are expected to further their career development in a diversity of formalities and opportunities in broad areas including various industrial sectors, PhD-oriented study, education and training, to name a few.

Curriculum

Programme Structure

The programme provides the option for students to engage either in the full-time study mode (taking 9 credits or more per semester) or the part-time study mode (taking fewer than 9 credits per semester). In general, each subject requires a 3-hour class per week over a 13-week semester. Full-time students normally take 3 to 5 subjects in a semester, and part-time students usually take 2 subjects. Subjects are offered in the evenings.

 

Students who enrol in the MSc in Mechanical Engineering programme have the option to select from a wide range of subjects offered by departments under the Faculty of Engineering and from other disciplines such as accounting, construction and environment, and logistics.  They can also select combinations of subjects that allow them to graduate with a specialism award.
