Short Description

The Faculty of Engineering has introduced the common admissions scheme since 2012, through which applicants can use one single code, 6963, to apply for any one of the following 7 BEng programmes:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management
  • Mechanical Engineering

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 education 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 fulfilling the requirements of respective minor options.
  • Option of double-degree BENG/BBA
    Students can apply for the double-degree BENG/BBA provided that they meet the additional requirements. Students will have the chance to study some business courses during their study in BENG, and have an option to undertake an additional year on self-financing basis leading to the degree of Bachelor of Business Administration.
  • Quota
    With effect from academic year 2014-2015, a soft quota system was imposed for BENG programmes offered by each department of the Faculty of Engineering. Students can choose their desired study programme after their first year of studies, on the basis of academic performance.
