Short DescriptionUpdated

The HKUST School of Engineering is the most comprehensive Engineering School in Hong Kong. The School has a strong international reputation and consistently ranks high among major engineering schools around the world. In 2016 Times Higher Education World University Rankings, HKUST was ranked No. 19 globally in Engineering and Technology.

The School of Engineering adopted School-based admission. In the first year of study, students will undergo fundamentals embracing general education and essential foundations. In the School of Engineering, upon completion of the first year, students will be able to select any engineering major from a wide range of programs. All Bachelor of Engineering degree programs are accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).*

The four year curriculum requires around 120 credits. The new curriculum provides a more student focused and broader program structure with a large degree of flexibility which enables students an all-round educational experience and better prepares them for diverse careers. The curriculum is designed to help students identify their interest and career aspiration.

The Centre for Engineering Education Innovation (E2I) was established to support engineering students exclusively and help them achieve a successful year at the beginning of their university study. Introduced by E2I, the peer mentoring program will offer first-year students counseling support and help them understand their own interest and academic strengths.

*The accreditation status of individual programs can be referred to the HKIE website. For new programs, such as Sustainable Energy Engineering and Decision Analytics, the accreditation decision will be confirmed until a year before the first cohort of students graduate.
