Our Target

We aim to educate students who can integrate the diverse disciplines of mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. Students learn to design and develop high-value-added mechatronic products (including laser printers, home appliances, toys, automation systems and machines) and implement the engineering aspects related to the use, operation and maintenance of manufacturing systems and equipment.

Start Your Career Here

Upon graduation, you will be able to work in a wide range of fields involving the management of product design and development and the provision and maintenance of high-tech products and services in mechanical-, electronic- and computer-related fields. You will be able to work as a plant engineer/manager, product designer/manager, mechatronic engineer, service engineer/manager, development engineer, sales engineer or, with further training, become a quality engineer, sales engineer or testing engineer.

Entrance Requirements for Direct/Non-JUPAS Applicants

For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥ 3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award in engineering or a related discipline.

Curriculum Structure

What You Will Be Studying

Entry-level courses emphasise fundamental principles and concepts while covering a broad spectrum of basic and analytical design skills. The course topics include engineering materials and manufacturing processes, engineering analysis and design, mathematics, electronics and mechanical engineering, computer programming and computer-aided engineering drawing.

Intermediate-level courses are more advanced and provide the essential background for specialisation. These courses include mechanical design, electronics for industrial applications, microprocessor programming and applications and control principles.

Advanced-level courses include motion control design, a group design project and technical elective courses in the following subject areas: (i) mechanics (ii) electronics, controls and computers and (iii) systems and management.

Industrial Training and International Exchange

The College of Science and Engineering and the Department offer work placement opportunities through various internship schemes that provide students with full-time job attachments in firms not only in Hong Kong, but also in the Pearl River Delta region and overseas. Through such placements, students will:

  • gain solid experience in a real-world work environment;
  • develop problem-solving abilities and interpersonal skills;
  • learn the right attitudes towards work and professionalism; and
  • broaden their experience and enhance their employability.

For details, please visit the College's Co-operative Education Centre's website.

Furthermore, for students to broaden their educational horizons, gain language experience and enhance their awareness of different cultures, the Department, College and University offer a number of credit-bearing exchange programmes with various partner institutions around the world, including universities in Australia, Canada, Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region.

Please visit CityU's website and the Department's website for details of our outbound exchange programmes.
