With China joining the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the signing of the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) between Hong Kong and the Mainland, we see huge opportunities for Hong Kong to advance herself to become an international logistics hub for the world's major manufacturing base in the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region. It was further agreed that as long as they are qualified as "Hong Kong Service Suppliers", local and multinational firms can set up businesses in Hong Kong and mainland China to provide logistics, international freight forwarding, storage, warehousing and transport services. Therefore, the demand for trained professionals in logistics and other related fields are increasing significantly in this region.
This BEng programme, jointly offered by the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management and the Department of Computer Science, is a timely response to such huge demand and opportunities. Tapping into the strength of the two Departments, our programme is designed to educate and train a new breed of engineers and potential managers to face the new challenges and capitalise on the opportunities in local/international logistics and related services.
This major aims to equip students with analytical, technical, managerial, and behavioural skills / knowledge in aspects of e-Logistics Technology and Technology Management in order to prepare them to play key professional and managerial roles in the global logistics industry amidst increasing and evolving challenges. Students will acquire a broad understanding of the concepts, techniques and tools in the subject domain to enable them to identify and tackle diverse problems with effective use of contemporary computing / management systems, technology and solutions in the logistics and related sectors.
Ideal BEeLTM graduates should be:
In addition to the above broad attributes, our graduates are expected to attain specific Intended Learning Outcomes of Major (MILOs) of being able to:
