      • Advanced Standing & Credit Transfer/Module Exemption:
        • Students may apply for advanced standing upon their initial enrolment on the programme and they are required to provide a copy of the relevant academic qualification(s) and curriculum(s) to substantiate the application and present the original academic qualification(s) for verification. A module mapping will then be conducted to ensure there is at least 70% similarity between the two modules in curriculum contents and module learning outcomes. The institution that offers the programme/module(s) used for claiming exemption should be a recognised post-secondary institution. The applicant should normally have obtained a grade equivalent to B- (or a Grade Point of 2.7) or above in the module before the application for exemption is considered.
        • For the English Language modules, students with appropriate test results from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE), or their equivalents, may apply for exemption.  However, the results for the score of IELTS or TOEFL must not be more than two years from the date of the test or final examination and the date of commencement of study at the Institute. Students must provide a copy of the IELTS or HKALE test result. Those with a TOEFL test score must organise for the Institute to receive an original copy of the official TOEFL score report.

    The PD-BSE Programme aims to enable students to acquire a solid understanding and foundation in both practical and theoretical knowledge in building services engineering (BSE) to serve the manpower needs of the building services industry in Hong Kong. At QF Level 5, it is developed with a strong vocational orientation to provide students with the necessary engineering and managerial knowledge and skills to pursue careers in BSE.

    Programme Objectives (POs):
    • PO1: Equip students with a solid knowledge and understanding of the theories, methods and practices of building services engineering that will prepare them for their careers in the building services industry;
    • PO2: Provide students with the engineering knowledge and technical skills in the design, installation, commissioning, and operation of building services systems for buildings in the HKSAR;
    • PO3: Develop studentsí ability in professional practice, where a combination of engineering, management, communication, leadership, teamwork and other skills are required for solving engineering problems in building services;
    • PO4: Develop studentsí ability to appreciate how environmental aspects, technical and other factors influence various building services and engineering issues; and
    • PO5: Strengthen studentsí commitment to protect the environment and keep abreast of developments in the profession.
    Programme Learning Outcomes (PLOs):
    • PLO1: Apply knowledge and understanding of fundamental mathematics, computing, economics, science and engineering principles that underpin the study of building services engineering;
    • PLO2: Utilise appropriate knowledge, skills and techniques to design, analyse, install, commission and maintain building services engineering works in familiar and unfamiliar contexts;
    • PLO3: Solve building services related problems using appropriate engineering and economic principles, and designing systems/products/procedures to meet defined needs, taking into account practical constraints and non-routine requirements;
    • PLO4: Evaluate building services engineering and management solutions with respect to environmental aspects, technical and other considerations;
    • PLO5: Explain contemporary building services engineering issues, knowledge of relevant career fields and their practices, concerns and development;
    • PLO6: Search and synthesise information, collect and analyse data, organise and present ideas, and plan and execute projects; and
    • PLO7: Communicate effectively in various media, work effectively within a team, learn independently, manage self effectively, and care for the environment.
