T&M-DDP, the first of its kind in Hong Kong, offers high-caliber students an inspiring opportunity to gain two internationally-recognized degrees in five years: Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or Bachelor of Science (BSc), and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA).

T&M-DDP empowers students the skills to analyze issues from both technological and business viewpoints and to solve problems with both quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Students also develop awareness of different cultures and global perspectives and foster a willingness to serve. With double degrees in technology and management, our graduates have a wide variety of career advancement opportunities.

In addition to the major disciplines, students are also exposed to courses in mathematics, entrepreneurship, social science and humanities, and business communications in English and Chinese to sharpen their analytical skills and critical thinking and broaden their perspectives.
