Credıt/Ects 4/30
Course Content An Internship

is a supervised pre-professional learning experience that allows students to apply their skills and knowledge in a professional setting. These experiences are designed to enhance the student’s preparedness for an intended career with a business, industry, or government agency.  Internships can range from 15-40 hours per week, but must last the duration of at least 14 weeks.
Cooperative education is a partnership between academic institutions and the practical world of work. For students, it is a formal education and practical experience in business, industry or government agency, a blend of theory and application, new skills and knowledge, a competitive salary, and a validation of career choice. Cooperative education is different from internship. A co-op student of alternate semester should work and study as a full-time study.

Course Code and Name FE401 Multidisciplinary Integrated Project
Credıt/Ects 4/5
Course Content This course gives students the opportunity to become exposed to engineering disciplines (Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and computer engineering) by introducing problem situations that force them to link theory to practical real-world problems involving areas outside their own engineering disciplines. A multidisciplinary team environment forces students to interact with people that do not necessarily think like themselves and value the skills that other team members provide. Every graduating student will have “a multidisciplinary experience” during his or her undergraduate career. The use of a multidisciplinary integrated project provides one appealing pathway to achieve such experience.

In this course, real world multidisciplinary design experiences are used to prepare HKU graduates to enter today’s workforce.

Undergraduate students from different engineering departments may sign performance contracts (for some modest team task) in turn with faculty advisers. Such “vertical and horizontal integration” of student participants allows an early preview of design team organization, and first-hand experience in viewing both good and poor team behavior. The team may design both the product and the company, the former as a typical engineering product or process and the latter through development of a corporate business plan.
