There are 9 IVE campuses across the territory offering programmes of different levels and grouped under 7 academic disciplines. The Engineering Discipline is the largest of the seven academic disciplines within the IVE. It enrolls over 7,500 full-time students and more than 7,000 part-time students. The Discipline covers a wide spectrum of studies including construction, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical and building services engineering, and transportation. Supported by its strong industry network, state-of-the-art facilities, and highly qualified teaching team, the Discipline provides quality and professionally-oriented engineering programmes to secondary school leavers and industry practitioners. Apart from technical knowledge, the Discipline has always stressed the importance of practical experience. Through simulated workplace environments and/or work attachments, students and industry practitioners could equip themselves with professional knowledge and skills that they will need for career development and lifelong learning.
