Based on feedback from the community, the faculty of engineering at Polytechnic University has launched a master of science (MSc) degree in integrated engineering. The programme will start in the coming academic year. 'A lot of engineering opportunities are at small and medium-sized enterprises [SMEs],' said Winco Yung Kam-chuen, associate professor in the department of industrial and systems engineering. 'These companies are hoping to recruit graduates who can lead a team of younger, more junior engineers - particularly if they are working on the mainland.' Since they will be leading a team, they need to have a broader exposure to knowledge in different disciplines. 'When SMEs hire undergraduates, they expect them to have training in a specific engineering discipline,' Dr Yung said. 'But at the master's level they expect students with broader knowledge - knowledge that transcends disciplines.' PolyU's faculty of engineering has departments of computing, electrical engineering, electronic and information engineering, industrial and systems engineering, and mechanical engineering. All except the computing department offer a master's degree in engineering. The purpose of these programmes is two-fold: to equip students with an advanced knowledge of engineering technologies and to enhance their generic skills in such areas as management, leadership and teamwork. There is also an engineering doctorate (EngD). With five departments, the faculty of engineering at Chinese University has postgraduate research programmes leading to a master of philosophy (MPhil) and PhD. It also has MScs in biomedical engineering, computer science, e-commerce and logistics technologies, electronic engineering, information engineering, logistics and supply chain management, mechanical and automation engineering, and systems engineering and engineering management. The engineering faculty at the University of Hong Kong is one of the institution's two founding faculties. It has departments of civil engineering, computer science, electrical and electronic engineering, industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, and mechanical engineering. The faculty offers MScs (engineering) in building services engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, industrial engineering and logistics management, infrastructure project management, mechanical engineering, structural engineering and transportation engineering. It also offers MScs in computer science and electronic commerce and internet computing. The College of Science and Engineering at City University has eight departments. There are research degrees leading to MPhils and PhDs and 18 taught programmes leading to MScs.
