The Aviation Engineering Scheme aims to train students to become aeronautical and aviation engineers who possess strong skills and in-depth knowledge of engineering and engineering management, as well as a sense of social and environmental responsibility. The programme is offered by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.


Aviation Engineering Programme Characteristics

Graduates are equipped to pursue careers in aircraft maintenance engineering, aircraft component engineering, aeronautical engineering, aircraft design, control and propulsion systems, navigation, unmanned aerial vehicles, and many other engineering disciplines. The programme provides hands-on experience with the support of state-of-the-art facilities, such as supersonic wind tunnels, UAV testing systems, and material manufacturing and testing platforms. 

The programme is offered by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Programme Structure

  • Year one: The curriculum is common to both programmes. Students receive a broad education in mathematics and science, and learn about the role and responsibilities of an engineer.
  • Year two: The curriculum is common to both programmes. Students acquire knowledge of materials, mechanics, electrical and electronics engineering that are fundamental to aircraft and aviation systems. In addition, students gain hands-on experience of aircraft component manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Year three: The third year curriculum provides students with more advanced knowledge of aircraft structure and materials, aerodynamics, propulsion, aircraft dynamics, and control and avionics.
  • Year four: Students can apply their skills and knowledge in a final-year project to build up their professional skills as an engineer. Each student can choose a topic that interests them, e.g. unmanned aerial vehicles, avionics, or aircraft design.
