A unique science-based programme that aims at preparing future engineers and leaders of innovation who have the solid engineering skills and in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge needed to take on many of the global challenges that humankind faces.
To achieve the above, the programme features a flexible structure with five areas (majors) of concentration.
This programme adopts a major/minor structure in which students select one of the five majors, and then pursue a second major in one of the remaining four majors; or a second major and/or minor(s) offered by the Faculty of Engineering or other faculties, including Arts, Business and Economics, Science, and Social Sciences.
A major in Energy Engineering could lead to the following possible careers:
The BEng in Engineering Science programme provides students with a chance to expand horizon in various fields. I took courses about alloys, semiconductors, bio-materials, optical materials, and also selected curriculums in interested disciplines. A broad vision in multiple fields helps a lot in research. During the research internship at Harvard, knowledge in physics and materials helped me get familiar with the topic quickly. In addition, this research experience taught me the importance of being an independent researcher.
Aside from engineering, I have taken courses in finance, business and social sciences cultivating a broad knowledge base. During my internship at the New World Development Company Limited last summer, I was able to use my multidisciplinary background to look at things from a different perspective and solve problems. I would recommend students interested in gaining exposure beyond engineering to pursue Engineering Science.
The major option “Computing and Data Analytics” offered by this programme strikes a balance between learning computer science and statistics at the same time, which gives me more insights about both industries and eventually leads me to more career options. I am looking forward to using what I have learnt from school to do a tech startup myself in the coming days. As an engineer, it is a self-satisfying joy to build and sell products/services of my own. This major is exactly what I am looking for since it provides me with the technical skills required to realize my dream.
The 3 months having internship at Swire Properties and Gammon would definitely be one of the most eye-opening and exciting summer breaks I have had in my life. My summer internship with Swire Properties allowed me to understand how sustainability was managed and practiced in the commercial sector on a corporate level. This was quite different from my training with Gammon which focused on on-site environmental and monitoring measures in construction projects. Thanks to the flexible curriculum structure which enables me to pursue a more diverse career in both managerial and practical roles in the field of environmental engineering.
