The Department of Mechanical Engineering has merged two undergraduate programmes, the BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering and the BEng (Hons) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design, into the BEng (Hons) Scheme in Mechanical Engineering. Students admitted to the scheme study together during the first 2 years, and then complete their preferred programme (one of the above two programmes), normally within 2 years. This arrangement allows students to make their choice of study after they have obtained a better understanding of the programmes. There is no quota restriction on the number of students in the BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering or the BEng (Hons) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design programmes.
BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering
After our students have received a broad and solid foundation in areas such as physics, mathematics, computing, engineering sciences, design and manufacturing, they are able to apply their knowledge and skills to the following clusters:
- Aerospace Engineering
- Robotics and Autonomous Systems
- Environmental and Energy Engineering
- Mechanics and Materials
BEng (Hons) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design
The programme provides comprehensive education and training in design, development and analysis for engineering and product innovation, enabling graduates to synthesise product design, technology and business to produce successful new products that satisfy market needs. The programme adopts learning outcome-oriented, integrative and real-life design project-based teaching and learning approaches, helping students to develop their knowledge in engineering innovation, product development and marketing. We also help our students to develop their communication, teamwork innovation, project management and self-learning skills. Furthermore, students are given opportunities for extensive practical training through international or local attachments in professional design consultancy firms or industrial R&D departments for 2 to 6 months, to strengthen their ability to integrate knowledge into design engineering activities in a realistic industrial context. Thus, our graduates are equipped to play leading roles in the industry by virtue of their well-balanced education and practical training in design engineering innovation and product development.
In both programmes:
- we use a learning outcome-oriented teaching approach;
- students are required to complete Industrial Training and Work-Integrated Education; and
- students can also opt for summer placements in companies abroad, in the industry in Hong Kong or on the Chinese mainland.
