See PhD Programs in Engineering in Hong Kong 2017/2018

Engineering

The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

You can only be in a position to solve advanced engineering problems if you have PhD training in engineering. To be admitted as a doctoral student, one must hold a masters degree in the Engineering or related subject and pass a comprehensive entrance exam.

Hong Kong, found on the south coast of China, the country is one of the two Special Administrative Regions in the Republic of China. Hong Kong's higher education is placed in the England’s structure as well as international systems. It is managed by the country's Education Bureau.

PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Energy Technology Concentration)

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Campus Full time Part time 3 - 4 years September 2018 Hong Kong

Energy Technology research covers many areas, including sustainable technology, conventional technology, and energy efficiency and conservation. The interdisciplinary postgraduate research program in Energy Technology in the School of Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology provides long-term support to our ongoing educational training and fast-developing research in technology in general. [+]

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) is one of the leading MAE departments in Asia. It offers rigorous academic and professional training in a wide range of areas, including both traditional and cutting-edge topics in energy, mechanics, advanced materials, nano/biotechnology, and manufacturing. The PhD program aims at equipping the students with the capability of identifying and solving academic and/or real problems creatively. The doctoral degree is awarded for the completion of required courses and a significant original thesis. Research Foci The Department's research concentrates on energy and environmental engineering, mechanics and materials, and mechatronics and manufacturing. Solid Mechanics and Dynamics These are two of the fundamental pillars of Mechanics research. The Department has a diverse faculty with expertise in these fields. Research activities range from applied to theoretical problems, and have a marked multidisciplinary nature. They involve: applied mathematics, solid mechanics, nonlinear dynamics, computations, solid state physics, material science and experiments for various kinds of solid materials/systems and mechanical behaviors. Faculty members work on problems of both static and dynamic natures with different types of evolutions. These problems also involve multi-field coupling on different scales of time and length, from micro-second to long time creep processes and from a very small carbon nanotube or a cell to macroscopic scale composite materials and electro-mechanical devices/systems. Materials Technology Materials engineering focuses on characterizing and processing new materials, developing processes for controlling their properties and their economical production, generating engineering data necessary for design, and predicting the performance of products.

PhD in Civil Engineering

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Campus Full time Part time 3 - 4 years September 2018 Hong Kong

The PhD program aims to help students develop the skills needed to identify issues related to Civil Engineering and the ability to formulate and propose solutions to a problem in an independent manner. Students must successfully complete an advanced study program, including postgraduate courses and a thesis containing significant original research [+]

As a postgraduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, you will have the opportunities to make a world of difference by building knowledge at the forefront of the field, helping minimize environmental hazards and improving the quality of people’s lives. The Civil Engineering field is developing rapidly. Almost any solution to a societal problem has some connection with civil engineering. Such solutions include the development, utilization and control of resources for the benefit of people. Broad-based and in-depth knowledge of the discipline together with an understanding of new design concepts and technologies is essential for those who wish to become leaders in this part of the engineering profession. The Department's postgraduate programs seek to develop such knowledge and skills and to relate research efforts closely to the interests and needs of the society so that our research is relevant and has practical value. Postgraduates may concentrate in structural, environmental, geotechnical engineering, water resources, transportation, construction engineering or infrastructure development. The PhD program aims to help students develop the skills needed to identify issues related to Civil Engineering and the ability to formulate and propose solutions to a problem in an independent manner. Students must successfully complete an advanced study program, including postgraduate courses and a thesis containing significant original research. Research Foci The Department's research lies in four broad areas with many sub-groups within each: Infrastructure Development and Planning Building-system design and analysis, monitoring and analysis of highway bridges, wind and seismic engineering, geotechnical engineering and soil-structure...
