Awarding InstitutionThe Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Programme Starting Date04 Sep 2017
Aims and ObjectivesThe Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Product Analysis and Engineering Design aims to provide graduates with an excellent integration of knowledge, skills and hands-on experience in developing high value-added products with top quality. The areas of study include industrial design, engineering sciences, simulation and analysis techniques, prototyping and manufacturing methods, and management techniques, which are delivered via a coherent and well-balanced curriculum.

The programme also aims to ensure that graduates acquire the following specific abilities and skills: an understanding of consumer needs and the ability to benchmark design concepts, formulate and analyse engineering design problems, synergise the knowledge that is required for product development, apply state-of-the-art technology, ensure product quality, communicate effectively in multimedia and work in and efficiently manage a multidisciplinary design team.
FeaturesThis programme synergises and integrates technology with design and business, and works to fulfil the University's strategic development of product design in supporting Hong Kong's drive to become the Asian design hub.

The curriculum is developed and implemented through the learning-outcome oriented approach, which ensures that graduates acquire specific abilities and skills.

The programme produces all-round preferred graduates, who are immediately useful to industry but at the same time are able to play important roles in leading local manufacturers to switch from Original Equipment Manufacture (OEM) to Original Design Manufacture (ODM), and then to Original Brand Manufacture (OBM).

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.
