The School have acquired new equipment to support the teaching and learning. A new STEAM laboratory is set up in Kwai Hing Campus with 3D printers and hologram table.
The programme aims to introduce students to the fundamentals of engineering and construction. Designed to comprise both theoretical and practical elements, the course will equip students with the necessary knowledge and technical skills in line with the latest developments in the industry and enable them to pursue a career in the civil engineering and construction sector as technicians, technical officers, assistant engineers, project coordinators or works supervisors.
Upon completion of the programme, participants should be able to:
Apply mathematical, physical and engineering principles to work out solutions to civil engineering problems;
Conduct appraisal on structures in accordance with statutory requirements and devise solutions for structural elements to meet the needs of specific buildings and alteration works;
Assess properties and behaviors of materials, and their impact on structures, through laboratory studies and fieldwork, as appropriate;
Employ 3D design and modeling tools in construction development projects;
Evaluate the broader impacts of construction and infrastructure development on the population, environment, city planning, transport, and other sustainability considerations of the locality; and
Manage projects and contracts with awareness of legal, OSH, professional and ethical requirements as laid down by professional bodies and legislation.
