The aim of the Mechanical Engineering major is to prepare students with solid, fundamental knowledge to meet the needs of industries. Our graduates are expected to serve and contribute to a broad range of mechanical engineering industries in their future careers, working for instance as chartered engineers, chief administrators/managers of technical teams, and technology consultants. Some of them may even choose to be entrepreneurs for their own start-up companies.
The objectives of the major are to:
Mechanical engineering is a fundamental branch of engineering. It fulfils the rapid demands of the expanding consumer products and infrastructural development markets and other engineering areas such as automation engineering, dynamical and control analysis, engineering design, and materials/product testing. The Mechanical Engineering major will help you to develop a comprehensive and dynamic knowledge-set; flexible analytical and quantitative skills to tackle scientific and engineering problems; independent and critical thinking to develop/enhance engineering products; and integrated creativity and expertise to generate novel product designs to support the sustainable development of industries.
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 an engineering-related discipline.
HKDSE students will apply for admission to first-year studies (JS1207) through JUPAS.
