The program has a three-stage structure. The first stage concentrates on the fundamentals of mechanical engineering. The second stage integrates engineering sciences with laboratory work and exposes students to state-of-the-art tools and equipment. The third stage comprises electives that provide students with sufficiently in-depth knowledge in one of the following areas of specialization:
(i) Building Services, Energy and Environmental Engineering,
(ii) Mechatronics, Design and Manufacturing, and
(iii) Structure, Materials and Reliability Engineering.
In Hong Kong, mechanical and aerospace engineers are in high demand in many sectors, including utilities, transportation, infrastructure, the built environment, environmental services, precision design and manufacturing, and automation. Our students also have numerous opportunities in the sectors of strategic planning, management, and investment in advanced technology. In recent years, new fields such as smart buildings and smart manufacturing have created new employment opportunities for graduates. Graduates may also consider pursuing further studies, i.e., M.Sc., M.Phil., or Ph.D. degrees, at local and overseas universities.
