To satisfy the great student and community demands, we aim to educate professional mechanical engineers who can apply updated technologies to solve and manage multi-disciplinary engineering problems for various engineering/business sectors. Upon completion of the study, our mechanical engineering graduates are expected to possess excellent employment prospects in most industries/businesses to start their careers as mechanical engineer, service engineer, consultant engineer, design engineer or project engineer. Therefore, students graduated from the programme should be able to:
- apply scientific principles in performing engineering analysis and design to solve challenging problems that are typical in mechanical engineering;
- use computers as tools to solve engineering problems;
- develop the ability to formulate technical problems mathematically and analyze engineering systems;
- possess the ability to properly select the most suitable materials and methods that are safe, environmentally and aesthetically acceptable, and economically competitive for systems/products and their design and manufacturing;
- build up the skills needed to think innovatively and creatively;
- communicate effectively both in oral and written forms; and
- appreciate the ethical and societal responsibilities of engineers, the importance of lifelong learning, concepts of continuous quality improvement and continued effect of the globalization of design, manufacturing and marketing of technical goods and services.
After providing our students successfully with a broad and solid knowledge foundation including physics, mathematics, computing, engineering sciences, design and manufacture, they are then educated and trained to apply these knowledge and skills to various areas in Mechanical Engineering including Aerospace Engineering, Design and Automation, Environmental and Energy Engineering.
Thus, the BEngME programme provides our students with specific and extensive knowledge in these disciplines via the above three specialism streams at final stage of the programme.

To maintain the competitiveness of students, the Department has been encouraging its students to actively participate in a wide range of local and international activities and competitions in order to showcase their talents and creativity as well as to build up their skills and confidence.
Over the years, ME students shined in many international and national competitions and awards. Their accomplishments offer concrete proof that the Department has succeeded in nurturing students who not only excel in academic areas, but also demonstrate great leadership and problem-solving skills.
Because of their broad and solid knowledge in engineering and sciences, and their ability in applying the knowledge and skills to tackle complicated multi-disciplinary engineering problems, our graduates are able to start their careers as, but not limited to, mechanical engineer, manufacturing and process engineer, service engineer, consultant engineer or project engineer. The graduates can find excellent employment opportunities in a diversity of industrial sectors such as general mechanical engineering, aviation and aeronautical engineering, public utility companies, building services sectors, engineering consultancy firms, construction industry, environmental, electronic and manufacturing industries, information technology sector, government departments and educational institutions.
Our graduates are employable over a wide range of engineering companies in Hong Kong. In the last two years, over 100 companies employed our graduates, some of them employed our graduates every year over the last few years.
