Introduction

The School of Engineering (SOE) of the Catholic University of America (CUA) has established a student exchange program with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU)'s Faculty of Engineering (FENG). Through the established student exchange program, qualified engineering students at CUA may study abroad at PolyU's Faculty of Engineering during the second semester of their junior year.
 

The City

Hong Kong is a dynamic and prosperous metropolitan city with a population of about 7 million. Though it became a part of the People's Republic of of China in 1997, the region still maintains its own currency, legal system, and political system. Described as a place where east meets west, as the region is rich in ancient Chinese tradition but heavily influenced by the history of British colonization.
 

Facilities

PolyU is strategically located in Hung Hom, Kowloon, on a site of approximately 93,500 square metres adjacent to the Cross Harbour Tunnel. There has been extensive development and rapid expansion since the last 10 years.
 

Academics

The CUA engineering programs including biomedical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering and computer science have developed modified curricula for their study abroad students to ensure that the participating students graduate on time. Class formats are in lecture, tutorial, and projects. All courses are taught in English at PolyU, thereby requiring no Chinese language proficiency. Students, however are encouraged to take some beginning courses of Chinese languages before going abroad.
