Overview
Description

The Dual Degree Program in Technology & Management (T&M-DDP) is designed to provide a world-class interdisciplinary education that emphasizes technological innovation and managerial leadership with an inclination towards a global perspective. 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).
Dual Degree students learn how to analyze issues from technological and business viewpoints and solve both quantitative and qualitative problems. Students also develop awareness of different cultures and global perspectives and foster a willingness to serve, gaining much more than two degrees. With double degrees in technology and management, our graduates have a wide variety of career advancement opportunities.

As a fully integrated program, T&M-DDP students study engineering/science and business courses every year. 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. The program is challenging but delivers outstanding opportunities for students to acquire broad and deep knowledge in technology and management.

Content
I have always dreamed of building my own business and creating something that has a positive impact on people’s lives. That’s why I chose the Dual Degree Program: I knew that it would provide me with unique exposure to the worlds of both business and engineering. After graduating from the Dual Degree Program, I created the Lumos Helmet, the world’s first bicycle helmet with integrated lights and turn and brake signals, which makes cycling at night much safer.
