Department of Civil Engineering
The accreditation exercise of the Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Civil Engineering has been successfully conducted by the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation (HKCAA), which is fully recognized by the Hong Kong Government.
The Department of Civil Engineering provides a comprehensive programme that incorporates professional knowledge and skills as well as practical training for students to pursue a career in various fields of the civil engineering discipline. The programme covers a wide variety of subjects including structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, water resources engineering, building construction, project management, transportation, materials in structures and construction, and engineering mechanics. Students will be able to become the next generation of civil engineers participating in the design and construction of infrastructures such as bridges, highways, roads, water works, drainage and all aspects related to the civil engineering works.
More than 65 Years of Experience in Offering Civil Engineering Programme
The four-year degree programme in Civil Engineering is one of the first programmes in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. The Programme has been offered for 65 years. Our experience in offering civil engineering programme underscores our College's commitment in providing quality education to secondary school leavers to fulfil the needs in the field of civil engineering. The continuous economic development in Hong Kong and the Greater China region needs professionals with in-depth knowledge in civil engineering to contribute in infrastructure construction. The employability and career development of our graduates are optimistic.
In the past 65 years, more than 1,500 students graduated from the Department reflecting the fruit of our success. Our graduates distribute in every corner of the world and have been making their efforts to contribute to the civil engineering industry as well as the prosperity and development of Hong Kong.
