Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes
We nurture graduates with the technical and academic competence needed to excel in building sciences and engineering/building services engineering.
This programme meets the demand for locally trained building/building services engineers with expertise in the fields of consultancy, contracting, building management, and research and development.
Our graduates also have a broad range of personal skills, such as the ability to communicate effectively, think critically, learn independently, and address new problems innovatively.
Students learn the art and science of providing safe, healthy, and energy-efficient built environments with minimal adverse environmental impacts. They also have the chance to tackle intellectual challenges that prepare them to become future managers in the industry.
Students have the opportunity to work in teams, lead small projects, work independently and interact with highly qualified and professional staff. They also have access to a variety of design software and laboratory facilities for the latest building sciences and engineering applications.
Summer placement opportunities, Student Exchange Programme and scholarships awarded by professional bodies are offered.
-The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE)
-The UK's Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
*The Professional Accreditation of the programme is subject to approval.
Graduates have good career prospects in the building construction and real estate sectors. They often begin their careers as trainee engineers in government departments, consulting firms, contracting companies, property management companies, or utility companies.
First Class Honours graduates may consider research an attractive alternative.
