JUPAS code: 1021 College of Science and Engineering (Engineering)
(for HKDSE entrants only)
This major is a unique undergraduate programme in Hong Kong, aiming at meeting the current manpower requirements and also future economic challenges of Hong Kong. Students of this major will be trained in multi-disciplinary topics related to nuclear engineering and risk engineering. The major will concentrate on five related focus areas which are nuclear engineering, nuclear medicine and medical radiation, maintenance engineering, risk engineering, and crisis management. These five focus areas are in general aligned with three of the six new economic pillars, namely testing and certification, medical services, and environmental industry, which have been identified by Hong Kong SAR Government as the key fields for future economic growth. The following are some of the reasons why this major is needed:
The major aims to equip the students with multi-disciplinary knowledge in nuclear engineering and risk engineering. Besides teaching the discipline-related technical knowledge, we will also help the students develop their problem solving skills so that they can analyze and solve a broad spectrum of engineering problems. The students will gain a sound foundation in the relevant disciplines through practical hands-on projects and extensive exposure to real-life scenarios through 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 mainland China.
As this programme is multi-disciplinary in nature, job prospect is promising. After graduation, students can choose to work in many related professions or industrial sectors, such as power generation industry, maintenance engineering for large corporations, 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 also disaster management for Government, public utilities companies and big corporations.
To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy the University's General Entrance Requirements.
Students seeking admission to the College of Science and Engineering (via Engineering Route) are advised to study one or more of the following HKDSE subjects:
The curriculum has been categorized into eight main programme building blocks:
Innovative teaching approaches will be adopted in the delivery of the curriculum in order to integrate theories with industrial practices. Problem-solving activities, experience-based learning, integrative workshops, industrial attachment, co-operative education, and industry-based projects are typical means to help achieve the targets.
The major requires a total of 120 credit units.
This programme is designed to meet the accreditation requirements of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), a signatory member of the Washington Accord, under which all members agree to recognize each other's accredited engineering degree programmes.
