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.

Student Sharing Reference
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.
