Here From Our Students

"I chose HKU Engineering because it offers an internationally-recognized, excellent engineering program complete with interactive and stimulating projects that equip us with first-hand experiences in problem-solving and prepare us to be well-develop professional engineers complete with the necessary skills to fulfill those demands."

Fernaldy Soegianto, Bachelor of Engineering

“I get two Bachelors in four year’s time, one in Europe and one in Asia. It was clearly worth the shot because both universities are top-tier.”
