Programme Aims

This programme is pertinent to Hong Kong's current economic and social situation, namely, the CEPA with the Chinese mainland's entrance to the WTO, the rapid development in product development and analysis, the persistent pressure caused by environmental pollution, and the increasing need of qualified graduates in aeronautical engineering and the aviation industry. The programme prepares students to face these challenges and to take the initiative to mould the future of Greater China, including Hong Kong in particular.

With these aims, we also welcome students with first degrees from other engineering disciplines, the physical sciences and mathematics.

Benefiting from strong research and a commitment to quality teaching, our graduates are prepared to take up leadership roles in mechanical engineering, air/noise pollution management, product development and analysis, aeronautical engineering and the aviation industry.

This programme is offered within the Postgraduate Scheme in Engineering.

The programme provides four specialisms:

  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering (Product Development and Analysis)
  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering (Air/Noise Pollution Management)
  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering (Aeronautical Engineering)
  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering (Aviation)
