Features of BENG programmes are as follows:

  • Contemporary Engineering education nurturing future leaders
    The Faculty of Engineering offers contemporary curriculum and stimulating learning experience for educating future leaders in the field of engineering and related fields for Hong Kong, and to nurture well-rounded graduates with specialty expertise at the present time and beyond.
  • Broad-based engineering education with a wide range of choices
    Under the common admissions scheme, the curriculum structure for the first academic year is common to all BENG students.  The BENG curriculum shapes BENG students through a core set of requirements and experiences, and yet also allows flexibility through choice of disciplines and specializations.
  • Stimulating learning experience
    Students will build solid foundations in engineering through active learning, capstone experience, hands-on activities, internship, exchanges studies and service learning, which prepares them to pursue any engineering discipline in their studies.
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship
    The curriculum encourages Engineering students to be nurtured to be able to offer solutions to real life problems via design and innovation, and to foster and advocate entrepreneurship.
  • Academic Advising
    Academic advising is in place to guide students for their course selection, programme selection and career planning.
  • Options of minor programmes
    Students can opt for minor options in other engineering disciplines offered by the Faculty of Engineering or those offered by other faculties, subject to the requirements of respective minor options.
  • Quota
    With effect from academic year 2014-2015, a soft quota system has been imposed for BEng programmes offered by each department of the Faculty of Engineering. Students will choose their desired study programme after their first year of study, on the basis of academic performance.
