Towards Industry 4.0 – Science and Engineering Education and Research at PolyU CPCE

Science and engineering are an integral part of modern society. They play a key role in enhancing human well-being, especially in the process towards Industry 4.0. Thus, nurturing our students into future scientists and engineers is our top priority.

The Division of Science, Engineering and Health Studies boasts a team of over 70 academic staff members specialising in various areas including natural sciences, engineering and health studies. Our teaching staff possess not only the requisite academic and professional credentials but also the all-consuming passion for teaching and research excellence. Together, we endeavour to provide quality training for aspiring students through 15 sub-degree and articulation honour’s degree programmes spanning across diverse science and engineering areas. You can find out more about these programme offerings here.

Most of our programmes are accredited by professional bodies including, for example, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, and the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers. Such professional accreditation greatly facilitates our graduates’ career development. Regarding hardware, we have six individually themed laboratories, namely the Energy Conversion and Utilisation Laboratory, Healthcare Laboratory, Materials and Design Engineering Laboratory, Mechanics and Control Laboratory, Multi-purpose Laboratory, and Science Laboratory, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to offer our students hands-on training.

We realise the importance of learning and teaching which are informed by research and the growing significance of interdisciplinary collaboration. To those ends, our Division has established three research centres, namely the Centre for Ageing and Healthcare Management Research (CAHMR), Research Centre for Advanced Design, Materials and Manufacturing Technologies (RCADMM), and Research Centre for Green Energy, Transport and Building (RCGETB), to support local and overseas tertiary institutions in conducting scientific research projects and to foster interdisciplinary activities and collaboration.
