BEng (Hons) in Transportation Systems Engineering 運輸系統工程學(榮譽)工學士學位

TRANS SYS ENGG

Short Description

This programme aims to make full use of the hugely versatile applications in the in-demand disciplines of electrical engineering and civil engineering to broaden the career opportunities for our graduates. Students are expected to acquire a solid understanding of the fundamentals of electrical engineering and civil engineering, and apply the knowledge gained and techniques learned to the relevant areas in transportation systems.
 
The programme philosophy focuses on the incorporation of up-to-date engineering knowledge into transportation systems to enhance the efficiency, reliability, safety and maintainability of infrastructure and services. Current practices in transportation, the latest technologies in transportation systems and their integration in the provision of engineering solutions for practical problems form the core of the programme.

Remarks:

  • This programme is jointly offered by the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. It is covered under neither the Broad Discipline of Engineering nor the Broad Discipline of Construction and Environment. Interested applicants should apply directly to the programme.
  • Students may pursue a Minor in a different discipline.
  • Students may be required to take an extra subject in Physics depending on their entry qualifications.

  6. There is no compulsory subject requirement for our programmes. Preferred subjects, if applicable, are listed in the 'Entrance Requirements & Subject Weightings' section of individual programme entries. Satisfactory performance in preferred subjects will have a positive influence on admission selection.
