Short Description

<<Programme Video>>

As the first of its kind in Hong Kong, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering was established to develop internationally competitive and cutting-edge research and provide a professional curriculum that equips graduates to contribute to materials science and engineering and related sectors in Hong Kong, greater China and the rest of the world.

The Department serves as a collaboration platform for developing cross-disciplinary academic programmes and interdisciplinary research projects with other academic units in the University. Further, it aspires to become a world-leading department in research and professional education with a focus on the following four target areas:

  1. Biomaterials
  2. Computational materials science
  3. Functional materials
  4. Structural materials

The Department also serves as an international platform to encourage collaboration among the leading institutes in the world and to enhance our global research reputation.

BEng Materials Science and Engineering

In the Materials Science and Engineering major, students acquire knowledge that can be used to solve materials problems in engineering processes. Graduates of this major can seek jobs in engineering companies and join the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers as graduate members. They can become professional engineers after receiving the relevant on-the-job training and completing the professional assessment.

BEng Materials Science and Engineering students are eligible to apply for the following joint degree programme:
