To meet the needs of the students and society, this scheme has been developed to equip students with the specialized skills in the management of logistics and enterprise processes in modern organizations and businesses, in a global context.
By building a solid foundation with fundamental knowledge and skill sets in logistics and enterprise engineering, each aspect provides training, with focus on a specific programme aim.
Programmes under the Scheme
BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management
Logistics engineering is one of the main industries that has been identified by the H.K.S.A.R. Government for accelerated development and substantial growth to support the local economy. Consequently, the growth of logistics activities in this region will be enormous in the years ahead.
Logistics engineering with management can be defined as the use of technology to manage the processes of planning, implementing and controlling the efficient and effective flow and storage of goods, together with the services and related information, from the point of origin to the point of consumption, so that they conform to customer requirements.
Managing logistics is a very interesting field, involving the effective management of human resources, materials, handling equipment, information, and the concerned finance through a network of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and customers. It has become increasingly more challenging as the trend towards market globalization and mass customization accelerates.
Aims of this programme
To produce logistics engineers and professionals who are competent in the design, implementation, control, and execution of logistics systems and related technologies, as well as to develop the ability of students to manage complex systems of business, logistics, and technology for increasingly technology-enabled logistics businesses.
The Programme has been granted provisional accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) as a professional engineering degree programme recognized by other Washington Accord signatories.
Graduates of the BSc (Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management have been granted full exemption (Logistics Management Stream) of Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE) leading to Chartered Membership of The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK).
BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Engineering with Management
Enterprises are organizations, industrial and commercial, that shape the economy of the modern world. They include all types of organizations, such as business companies, manufacturing firms, airlines, banks, government departments, etc. Enterprise Engineering involves a family of scientific methods and tools which focuses on designing and changing enterprises, their processes, and systems. Management can be defined as the art of getting things done through people. It is the process of leading and directing an organization, such as a business enterprise, through deployment and manipulation of resources.
The integration of enterprise engineering and management, together with the application of internet and information technology, provides the principles, practice, tools, and technology to enable an organization to effectively manage its resources, achieve competitive advantages, deliver quality products and services, and meet customer expectations and demands.
Aims of the programme
To produce enterprise engineers who are competent to design and run complete "enterprises", distinguishing them from other engineering professionals. Our definition of enterprise includes all types of organizations, such as banks, insurance companies, hospitals, government departments, and manufacturing firms.
The programme is dual accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Students will receive a second professional qualification upon successful completion of the programme subject to CMI moderation of learners' work.
