      • Non-means-tested Subsidy Scheme for Self-financing Undergraduate Studies in Hong Kong 為修讀香港自資學士學位課程學生提供免入息審查資助計劃
        • http://www.cspe.edu.hk/content/nmt-annual-subsidy
        • From the 2017/18 academic year, the Government provides a non-means-tested annual subsidy for eligible students pursuing full-time locally-accredited local and non-local self-financing undergraduate (including top-up degree) programmes in Hong Kong (save for those enrolled in places already supported under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors) offered by eligible institutions.
        • Under the Subsidy Scheme, a non-means-tested annual subsidy of $30,800 will be provided to Hong Kong students –
          • (a) attaining “3322” in the Hong Kong Diploma for Secondary Education Examination when they are enrolled in eligible self-financing undergraduate programmes; or
          • (b) with sub-degree qualifications (i.e. after completing relevant sub-degree programmes) when they are enrolled in eligible self-financing top-up degree programmes.
        • Both new and continuing students meeting the criteria are eligible for the subsidy, which is tenable for the normal duration of the programmes concerned and will be disbursed to the participating institutions based on the actual enrolment of eligible students.
      • The BEng-BSE programme has obtained provisional accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and will cover the first cohort of graduates (2019). Full accreditation will be considered after a full visit when the first cohort of graduates is produced. The proposed timeline for the HKIE accreditation is shown below:
        • End of 2017: HKIE visit for provisional accreditation exercise (Done)
        • End of 2019: HKIE visit for full accreditation exercise

    The BEng-BSE programme aims to develop students to be highly skilled in developing and designing building services systems and be problem-solvers to meet ever-changing industry challenges, which involves complex building technology, innovative building design, and green building assessment. It also aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills of modern building services technologies, with emphasis on using projects as the main learning and teaching assessment method to reflect general industry practice.

    Programme Objectives (POs):
    • PO1: Equip students with solid fundamental knowledge of science and engineering that will prepare them for professional careers in the building services engineering industry;
    • PO2: Train students with the abilities to apply theoretical engineering knowledge to professional practice and the solution of complex contemporary problems;
    • PO3: Develop students with professional skills in the design, operation, testing and maintenance of building services systems and with independent problem-solving skills, as well as good communication skills, so that they can work effectively in a multi-disciplinary project;
    • PO4: Strengthen students’ commitment to understand the importance of ethical and societal considerations, including those related to health, safety and environmental sustainability; and
    • PO5: Build up students’ leadership with national and international perspectives in the professional building services engineering and with a lifelong learning attitude.
    Programme Learning Outcomes (PLOs):
    • PLO1: Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering fundamentals to the solutions and practices of building services engineering;
    • PLO2: Identify, formulate and solve building services engineering problems in HVAC, electrical systems, fire detection and protection, indoor environments, energy efficiency, plumbing and drainage, building operation and maintenance, facilities management and building sustainable development;
    • PLO3: Design various building services systems using modern engineering and IT tools, physical, engineering analysis and appropriate green building design and industrial practices;
    • PLO4: Conduct investigations and devise solutions for building services problems using functional knowledge, including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of knowledge throughout the life cycle of a building;
    • PLO5: Apply technical competency to solve real world engineering problems associated with the project cycle and exercise judgment through application of project management principles and skills;
    • PLO6: Communicate effectively about complex building services engineering activities with the profession and with society at large, and work effectively as members or leaders in professional teams; and
    • PLO7: Develop professional responsibilities with lifelong learning attitude and stay abreast of contemporary and international issues and be aware of the importance of safety, financial, legal, ethical and societal considerations for benefitting society in an all-round manner.
