There are five departments in the Faculty of Engineering providing high quality engineering education covering a wide range of engineering disciplines in the global knowledge-based economy:
- Civil Engineering
- Computer Science
- Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
Apart from the BEng programmes offered by these five departments, the Faculty introduced an inter-disciplinary BEng in Biomedical Engineering programme (formerly known as Medical Engineering Programme) jointly with the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine since 2002, to exploit the strengths of both faculties. The BEng in Engineering Science programme was also first offered by the Faculty of Engineering in 2012-2013 in response to the rapid changing world landscape for high caliber engineers to be groomed with multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills. The inter-disciplinary programme, Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Financial Technology [BASc(FinTech)] is jointly offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Business and Economics commenced in 2019-2020. The BASc(FinTech) Programme is designed to nurture financial technologists and entrepreneurs with essential knowledge in both finance and technology, so they can take leading roles in innovation and applications of financial technology. Apart from the above, with the fast emerging data science and engineering technologies such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and big data infrastructure boost the transformative impact of big data on businesses, industries and society, the Faculty will introduce a new undergraduate programme - BEng in Data Science and Engineering [BEng(DS&E)] in the academic year 2022-23. BEng(DS&E) programme is a professional degree offered by the Department of Computer Science, with support from the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, Department of Mathematics, and Faculty of Law.
All programmes of BEng now being offered are accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). With that standing, the professional qualification of our engineering graduates is mutually recognized by most countries, such as the United States, Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa. Such recognition widens graduates’ career opportunities globally.
The Faculty aims at providing all-round education to students equipping graduates not only with knowledge of cutting-edge technology, but also positive and lateral thinking, versatility of approach, excellent communication and social skills; professional integrity, international exposure and other highly-regarded personal attributes.
