Programme Code: 080305      Duration3+1 years
Educational Objectives
This degree programme provides a wide range of courses including mathematics, mechanics, electronics, computer and management on theoretical and also practical levels. The students are expected to be equipped with the optimum knowledge structure of the field and capable of engaging inthe design, research and management work in areas of machinery, electronic manufacturing, modern communication technology, aeronautics and aerospace research. This four-year programme has three specific objectives:
Objective 1 (foundation knowledge): to equip students with a sound foundation knowledge framework of Engineering and Automation. While placing a special focus on the basic theories, methodologies and practices in the areas of research, the course also emphasises the humanity quality in engineering, strong sense of social responsibility and professional ethics.
Objective 2 (problem-solving ability): to establish the students’ ability to solve practical engineering problems in real life by using the fundamental theory and knowledge of mechanical engineering in an innovative way.
Objective 3 (team-work and leadership): to equip students with the ability to communicate and cooperate within teams, and the leadership ability in mechanical engineering.
Objective 4 (systematic understanding of the discipline): to be able to mater the basic knowledge on usingvarious techniques, skills and modern engineering tools under our basic engineering practice training sessions; to be able to design mechanical systems, parts and processes;  to establish the innovative tendency within studentsto research, develop and designproducts, practices, techniques and equipment.
Objective 5 (ability of evaluating social and environmental impacts): to be able to properly understand the laws and regulations in relation to mechanical engineering, in particular those concerning environmental and sustainable policies and regulations; to achieve an understanding of the impacts engineering can have on the world and the society; to obtain knowledge concerning engineering, specifically those which are related to modern social problems, which in turn enhances the students’ understanding of the relationship between engineering and the society and our natural world.
Objective 6 (global perspective): to be clearly aware of the responsibility an engineer has in today’s globalized world, to be responsible with regards to the professional pratices and be able to cooperate with an adequate amount of cross-cultural communication skills.
Objective 7 (the ability of life-long learning): Graduates will be fully capable of working in research institutes, colleges or universities, relevant industrial sectors, and will have the ability to be engaged in research, R&D and management work, as well as various careers and have the ability of life-long learning.
