Short Description

<<Programme Video>>

The Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering is one of the founding departments at City University of Hong Kong. The Department offers professional education at both undergraduate and postgraduate degree levels. Our programmes are academically rigorous and professionally focused. Adopting an inter-disciplinary approach, our programmes are delivered by a professional team that includes civil and structural engineers, architectural / building services engineers, construction engineers, material technologists, environmental scientists, architects, urban planners, building surveyors and quantity surveyors. Our graduates are therefore uniquely placed to serve the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.

The AEC industry in Hong Kong is flourishing. Infrastructure and building developments, and the maintenance and refurbishment of existing facilities, have contributed to Hong Kong's growing economy. There are notable opportunities for innovations and career development. In addition to the Hong Kong market, the local AEC industry can expect to participate actively in the markets of the People’s Republic of China. The Department has established close collaborations with universities and professional bodies both locally and in Mainland China.

The introduction of four-year university education offers a platform for the implementation of a Discovery-enriched Curriculum. Directed towards an outcome-based teaching and learning paradigm, together with excellence in applied research, the Department pledges to succeed in its mission of “Meeting the world’s challenges – Build tomorrow, create the future”.

The Department currently offers the following majors:

  • BEng Architectural Engineering
  • BEng Civil Engineering
  • BSc Surveying

BEng Civil Engineering (Structural Engineering Stream) students are eligible to apply for the following joint degree programme:
