Programme Aims

The programme aims to nurture students to become professional engineers for designing and managing the built environment and the building services systems. The programme combines theory and practice, covering carbon-reducing and energy-saving design methods and data-driven energy management technologies for the built environment and the building services systems, as well as large-scale construction project management skills, providing comprehensive training on the application of Building Information Modelling technologies. The programme focuses on broadening students’ horizons and, through the close partnership with the industry, providing 480 hours of internship work for students to fully understand the real-world operation of the industry, acquire practical skills, and prepare well for the future career.

Career Prospects

Graduates are mainly engaged in industries related to built environment and building services engineering, providing professional design and management services for governments, developers, contractors, consulting firms and property or facility management companies. Attractive salaries in the industry are available, with graduates earning as high as HK$26,000 per month, and the employment rate of the graduates is over 98%. Some graduates also choose to pursue postgraduate studies at local, Mainland or overseas universities.

Professional Recognition

The programme has been fully accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Academic programmes accredited by HKIE for the Building Services Discipline are recognised by the UK's Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) under reciprocal recognition. The programme is also accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ) and recognized by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) of the HKSAR Government as satisfying the academic qualification requirement for the purpose of registration as Grade C electrical worker.

Work-Study Degree Scheme

The Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong (THEi) and the Hong Kong Federation of Electrical and Mechanical Contractors (HKFEMC) have collaborated to launch an innovative scheme called “Work-Study Degree Scheme” for Year-1 entry students of THEi’s BEng(Hons) in Building Services Engineering programme. This scheme offers students the unique opportunity to study and work concurrently without having to pay any tuition fees. Participants will receive a designated monthly salary, and the total work remuneration throughout the four-year programme can amount to HK$ 500,000. The primary objective of this initiative is to address the shortage of professionals in the building services field by enabling students to earn a bachelor’s degree while gaining practical experience. Upon graduation, they will possess both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, making valuable contributions to the industry’s talent pool.
