Two additional Minor Programs were launched during 2014, enhancing the scope of School of Engineering study options for undergraduates.
The School is now jointly offering a Minor in Entrepreneurship with HKUST Business School for undergraduates, with two-thirds of students from business and the other third from engineering. Prof Po Chi Wu, Founding Director of the Entrepreneurship Minor Program, said he was delighted with the strong level of interest and quality of students who had applied.
In addition, a new Minor in Design was also launched by the Department of Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management. Among its required courses is the enterprising four-week Design Thinking course held together with China Academy of Art over the summer, during which students work together in teams to create an original product from scratch.
Minors already available from the School of Engineering include aeronautical engineering, bioengineering, engineering management and law, and environmental sustainability and management. Students can also take minors offered by other HKUST Schools.
