We aim to equip our students with multi-disciplinary knowledge in nuclear and risk engineering. In addition to providing discipline-related technical knowledge, we help our students to develop problem-solving skills so that they can analyse and solve a broad spectrum of engineering issues. Students gain a sound foundation in the relevant disciplines through practical hands-on projects and extensive exposure to real-world scenarios via industrial placements and overseas exchange arrangements, with a view to attaining the dynamic levels and standards required by highly competitive markets such as Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. Graduates are able to contribute their specialist skills, competencies and multi-disciplinary knowledge to a wealth of related industrial sectors such as nuclear engineering, power generation, materials engineering, radiation protection, radiation dosimetry, medical equipment, risk engineering, safety engineering, insurance and disaster management.
Because this major is multi-disciplinary, the related job prospects are promising. Graduates can choose to work in many related professions or industrial sectors including the power generation industry, materials engineering for large corporations, testing and certification services, medical radiation-related fields in hospitals and diagnostic centres, radiation protection and environmental protection in government departments and private consultancy firms, product research and development in nuclear radiation equipment companies, risk assessment in the financial sector and disaster management for the government, public utilities companies and big corporations.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied an engineering-related discipline at a high school or post-secondary institution
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.
HKDSE students will apply through JUPAS for admission to the first year of study in the Department of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering with direct admission to the Bachelor of Engineering in Nuclear and Risk Engineering programme (JS1692, first-year studies). For details, click here.
