† Combined mode: Local students taking programmes in combined mode can attend full-time (12-18 credit units per semester) or part-time (no more than 11 credit units per semester) study in different semesters without seeking approval from the University. For non-local students, they will be admitted to these programmes for either full-time or part-time studies. Non-local students must maintain the required credit load for their full-time or part-time studies and any changes will require approval from the University.



Programme Aims and Objectives

  • To educate students to excel in advanced mechanical engineering discipline as well as to extend the boundaries of their professional competence to meet the needs of future industrial development.
  • To provide opportunities for students to develop leadership and creativity by engaging in interactive learning environments and management studies.

Programme Intended Learning Outcomes (PILOs):

  1. ACQUIRE essential concepts and knowledge of advanced mechanical engineering as well as across the boundaries of interdisciplinary disciplines;
  2. APPLY specialized knowledge to solve problems that are critical to future growth of industry and business;
  3. WORK effectively with people possessing diverse educational and experiential backgrounds in mechanical related disciplines;
  4. APPLY interdisciplinary teamwork to develop abilities to meet the increasingly competitive and dynamically changing world market.
