This programme offers two streams of studies:
- Electrical Engineering
- Building Services Technology

High calibre students can further their studies in Engineering at local or overseas universities after successfully completing this programme.

This programme provides a good foundation concepts in engineering education and prepares students for further studies or acquiring practical knowledge and skills to pursue a career in engineering fields by offering two streams of studies:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Building Services Technology 

Opportunities for Further Studies

High calibre students can further their studies in Engineering at local or overseas universities after successfully completing this programme.

In 2013-14, around 30% of graduates gained admission to local part-time engineering degree programmes (e.g. The Hong Kong Polytechnic University). Graduates are also eligible to apply for admission to the full-time and part-time top-up programme offered locally by the Edinburgh Napier University (UK) in collaboration with HKU SPACE - BEng (Hons) Engineering with Management

The programme will be offered on a part-time basis and 3 trimesters will be allocated over each academic year. Each year 1 module will have 24 contact hours and be taught in 3 hours per week (i.e. total 8 weeks). For year 2 modules, there will be 30 contact hours per module and it will be taught in 3 hours per week (i.e. total 10 weeks). For year 3 modules, except the modules Project, and Engineering and Society, there will be 36 contact hours per module and it will be taught in 3 hours per week (i.e. total 12 weeks).

The language modules will be taught by face-to-face lectures, small group discussions, and case studies. For specialism modules, arrangement of teaching and learning approaches including face-to-face lectures, class discussions, group work, practical, site visit, field work, laboratory work, directed self-study and computer aided learning will be used for relevant technical modules, such as Computer Aided Design, Electrical and Electronic Principles, and Electromechanical Energy Conversion.

Duration
  • 3 years (If applicants are granted direct entry to Advanced Diploma in Engineering Year 2, the study duration is 2 years.)
Venue
  • Any of the HKU SPACE Learning Centres on Hong Kong Island
