Applicants for admission to the postgraduate
programs should normally have completed a bachelor's degree
in Civil Engineering or a related Engineering field, and should
also have a proven record of good performance. The student
must demonstrate basic knowledge in Civil Engineering. Qualified
students can be admitted directly to the PhD program.
Applicants are required to submit:
||Completed application forms for admission

above, if applicable) two letters of recommendation a
one-page statement on the plan of postgraduate study.

must also demonstrate a sufficient command of English.

TOEFL and/or IELTS as evidence of their proficiency in English.

Admissions, Registration and Records Office of the University.
All students are required to undergo an English Proficiency Test conducted
by the University's Language Center upon their first enrollment in
the program. Students will be required to take a mandatory language
course LANG 5001 if they fail the proficiency test. The credit earned
from this mandatory course cannot be used to fulfill degree requirements.
Postgraduate awards in the form of studentships are allocated to qualified
full-time MPhil and PhD students of the University to provide them
with financial assistance during the course of their study. Awards
are based on availability of funds, academic merit and the suitability
of the applicant for the proposed Program of study, as is the selection
of applicants for admission to postgraduate studies. Recipients of
studentships are required to engage in ancillary teaching and research
duties in the Department, which supplement their formal degree Programs.
The nature of these assignments may change from time to time according
to need. Non local students should note that they are not allowed to
work in Hong Kong, part-time or full-time.
