Awarding InstitutionThe Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Programme Starting Date04 Sep 2017
Aims and ObjectivesThe Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering provides a diverse and up-to-date education in mechanical and related engineering. Technical study topics are carefully selected to reflect the urgent and potential needs of Hong Kong society and industry.

The use of high-performance computers and information technology in design activities is emphasised. Interdisciplinary studies are the norm for individual projects.

Students will acquire:
• know-how in traditional and emerging mechanical engineering activities such as environmental engineering;
•  readiness to play a crucial role in any engineering or engineering-related business; and
•  awareness of evolving technology and the ability to adapt to change.
FeaturesThis programme is closely related to the practical needs of the industry. A Group Project is carried out in the final year, in which students are tutored in multidisciplinary topics: many are environmental issues and current R&D problems in our industry, including those experienced by students' own employers.

This programme is offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) of PolyU, and is administered by PolyU SPEED. Most of the classes will be held on PolyU Hung Hom Bay Campus and PolyU West Kowloon Campus.

Upon successful completion of the programme, the degree will be awarded by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
