BEng in Chemical & Environmental Engineering

CENG152 Course Project Presentations

 
Program Highlights

This program emphasizes processes that turn raw materials into valuable products without producing effluents and wastes. All companies handling such processes need environmental engineers with a basic knowledge of chemical engineering to design, control, manage and operate environmental treatment facilities. This combined degree enables students to understand various industrial processes and realize where environmental control measures can be implemented, thus making the community a better place to live in.

Notes:
  1. Students are required to complete and pass a prescribed training program within the normal length of study.  Details of the program, its requirements and schedule will be announced on the website of the Industrial Training Center (http://www.ust.hk/itc) or website of the department in the first year Fall Term.  Training normally takes place in the Winter and Summer Sessions starting from the first year of study.  For recording the overall training results, students are normally registered for the course in their last semester of study.
  2. Students admitted through the School-based Admissions Scheme are not required to take CENG 4710, CENG 1600 or CENG 1500. They should take two additional Chemical Engineering (CENG) Elective course to make up the 6 credits shortfall. For detailed requirements on CENG Elective, please refer to note (5).
  3. School-based admittees may replace this course with LIFS 2030.
  4. School-based admittees or students who have grade D or better in AL Pure Mathematics or in AL Applied Mathematics are not required to take MATH 1018..
  5. Chemical Engineering Electives are to be chosen from CENG courses at 4000-level or above.  ENGG 4950 can be used to count toward the CENG elective requirement.

A minimum of 100 credits is required for the BEng program in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. Students must take additional course(s) and/or elective(s) of higher-than-required credit value to meet the minimum total of 100 credits. For students who are required to take MATH 1018, the minimum total required is 103 credits.

For students admitted through the School-based Admission Scheme - Enginering A, a minimum of 101 credits is required for their program completion.
