Three bachelor’s degree programmes in engineering offered by the University of Macau’s (UM) Faculty of Science and Technology (FST), namely Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering, have received full accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).

Students starting the three programmes between the 2011/2012 academic year and the 2018/2019 academic year will be eligible to apply for HKIE membership upon graduation to receive professional qualifications recognised worldwide.

UM received accreditation from the HKIE for its bachelor of science degree programmes for the first time in 2012. Later, it gained accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology and recognition from the signatories to the Washington Accord. The HKIE is a signatory of the Washington Accord and the only statutory qualifying body for engineers in Hong Kong. It is responsible for setting and maintaining professional and technical standards and undertakes professional accreditation to evaluate the quality of engineering degree programmes. The HKIE accreditation evaluates the quality of a programme at four levels: namely the university level (support for the accreditation exercise and future development), the faculty level (overall operation), the departmental level (faculty development, student training, and programme management), and the programme level (programme content and preparation for career development and further studies for students).

To better understand the FST’s programmes from these four perspectives, the HKIE accreditation team and representatives of the Macau Institution of Engineers met with UM’s rector and vice rectors, the dean and all the faculty members of the FST, FST advisory board members, departmental advisors, and representatives of alumni and students. After the meeting, the accreditation team noted that UM has outstanding faculty, a solid academic foundation, and extensive resources to provide quality education to students from the three engineering programmes.

澳門大學科技學院的土木工程理學士學位、電機及電腦工程理學士學位及機電工程理學士學位正式通過香港工程師學會的全面學術評鑑。自2011學年起入讀上述課程的學生,畢業後有資格申請成為香港工程師學會會員,從而取得世界認可的專業資格。

澳大工程理學士學位在2012年通過第一次認證,及取得美國ABET認證和《華盛頓協議》承認後,於2016年再一次通過香港工程師學會的全面評鑑。是次全面評鑑覆蓋及認可自2011/2012年至2018/2019年入讀的所有科技學院工程理學士學位課程的學生。這次認證是澳大科技學院學術課程被世界工程教育認可的最大肯定。

香港工程師學會是華盛頓協議國際工程學科認證組織的一員,也是香港唯一的法定專業工程師學會,負責擬定專業工程師訓練與審核標準,致力推動香港工程師資格互認工作,及為工程學位課程進行學術評審。是次學術評審的四大範疇包括:一、校方對學術評審的支持及未來發展;二、科技學院的整體運作;三、各學系對教師發展、學生培訓及課程的管理;四、課程的教學內容及對學生就業與升學的準備。

為深入瞭解科技學院,香港工程師學會評審團隊於2015年與澳門工程師學會代表分別會見了澳大校長、副校長、科技學院院長及學院全體教學人員、學院及學系顧問、校友及各級學生代表。評審團隊指出,澳大擁有高質素的教學人員,學術基礎穏固,資源豐厚,相信定能為入讀上述課程的學生提供高質素的教育。
