This programme has been developed to produce civil engineering professionals who are well-equipped with knowledge, practical and leadership skills in response to the manpower requirements arising from the major infrastructure projects and the aspirations for degree study of secondary school graduates. It will develop students’ problem-solving, teamwork, communication, and leadership / management skills as well as their ethical attitudes. The programme covers a broad range of professional knowledge related to civil and structural, geotechnics, environment, hydraulics, transport and infrastructure, and management. The learning experience is further enriched by the 3-month long work-integrated learning and 80 hours of Building Information Modeling trainings, along with a general education study developed to prepare for a career. Graduates from this programme will be professionally competent as well as socially and globally responsible.
Graduates may be employed as assistant engineers, graduate engineers, civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, project coordinators, site agents and project managers in government departments (such as departments under Development Bureau and Environmental Protection Department), public utilities (such as railways and electric companies), consultancies, construction companies, and relevant suppliers and manufacturers.
The graduates of the programme are well recognized by Government departments and construction industry. During the years, the graduates were employed in various positions e.g. civil engineering graduate (CEG) and structural engineering graduate (SEG) from HKSAR, graduate engineers of well-known consultant companies (such as AECOM Asia Co. Ltd, Arup Group Limited and Meinhardt Group (Hong Kong) Ltd.) and well-known construction companies (such as Gammon Construction Ltd., Build King Holdings Ltd. and Paul Y Engineering Group). The average starting salary for 2020 graduates is HK$18,355.3 with the employment rate at 93.2%. Recently, some graduates have joined the professional examinations provided by HKIE (after completion of scheme "A" training) and Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and become professional engineers.
The programme aims to train students to become professional engineers. The programme has received the Accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
Students may be required to attend classes on other VTC campuses. VTC reserves the right to cancel any programme, revise programme content or change the offering institute(s) / campus(es) / class venue(s) if circumstances so warrant.
