Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes

With decreasing time to market, increasing customer expectations and global competition, product design and development has become increasingly more complex in recent years. Today, product engineers are required to carry out product design and development tasks not only limited to functional or engineering design but also need to incorporate the considerations of aesthetic issues, design for the product life cycle, technologies and business issues. There is now an urgent need to produce professionals in product development who can be innovative, knowledgeable and skilful enough to synergise product development with design, technology and business in developing successful new products.

To fulfil this need, the BEng(Hons) in Product Engineering with Marketing programme is designed to achieve the following aims and learning outcomes:

  • Provide integrated education and training to students for synergising product design, technology and business in new product development;

  • Enable students to develop their knowledge in business development, strategic product planning, product marketing and management, and understand how they relate to the development of successful new products; and

  • Supply graduates who are capable of product design and development, and can interact with customers, industrial designers, production personnel, suppliers and vendors, understand market situations and competition environments, identify market needs and opportunities in order to convert them into new products that satisfy customer needs and all product engineering requirements.


Programme Characteristics

The programme provides comprehensive education and training in the development of successful new products in which graduates are able to synthesise product design, technologies and business issues.

Adopting an integrative and problem-based teaching and learning approach, the programme helps students to develop their knowledge in product design and development, and marketing, as well as their communication, teamwork, management and self-learning skills. Graduates are able to play leading roles in the industry by virtue of their well-balanced education and practical training.

Recognition & Prospects

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) as a professional engineering degree programme recognised by other Washington Accord signatories.

The Washington Accord is an international agreement between bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes.  Currently, it has 20 signatories, including the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand.


Career Prospects

In recent years, many Hong Kong manufacturers have been switching from being low-cost original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to high value-added original design manufacturers (ODMs), and even to original brand manufacturers (OBMs) to maintain their competitiveness and maximise their profit margins. This has led to a substantial demand for professionals to design and develop new products.

Our graduates have the abilities needed to work as product engineers, project engineers and product design engineers in the development of various kinds of products such as toys, domestic electrical appliances, health care products, electronic consumer products, audio/visual products, green products, power tools, and automobile components.
