The MAE Department considers quality assurance the first and foremost task in academic planning. Quality and Efficiency are key elements in the design of our academic programs and curriculum planning.
We offer our stakeholders:
The Undergraduate (UG) Committee, chaired by the UG Coordinator, is responsible for all undergraduate study related matters. Several Academic Related Committees are formed to assess the quality assurance process:
Learning Quality Committee meets thrice a year to review and evaluate Fall/Spring assessment data with a view to reviewing program quality every year.
There are t different channels for the Department’s stakeholders to express their views and suggestions on the quality of teaching, courses and program.
Accreditation from HKIE and Hong Kong Marine DepartmentThe BEng (MECH) has obtained full accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and the Hong Kong Marine Department over the years. The newly launched BEng (AE) also obtained provisional accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) in 2016, reflecting the high quality of our program in meeting the needs of the industry.
The Department holds a student-faculty meeting at least once a semester. Thanks to the student’s feedback, the curriculum has been streamlined over the years.
Industrial Advisory Committee meeting
The Industrial Advisory Committee gives the Department critical feedback/comments on curriculum development. Furthermore, it strongly supports the mentorship and Co-Op programs.
The Academic Advisory Committee is formed by professors from prestigious overseas universities. A meeting is held every two year at the HKUST campus to give the Department suggestions on teaching and program development.
The BEng (MECH) program is structured to provide a balanced curriculum for students. Students who graduate from the BEng (MECH) program are able to fully embrace the rapid technological and economic developments taking place worldwide, and become articulate professional engineers with an international outlook.
