    GE2303 Save the Earth : Sustainable Development

    The Chief Executive of the HKSAR stated in his 1999 Policy Address that building Hong Kong into a world-class city and making it a clean, comfortable and pleasant place in which to live would require a fundamental change in mindset. Every citizen, every business and every government department and bureau needs to start working in partnership to achieve sustainable development. Sustainable development does not focus solely on environmental issues. More broadly, sustainable development policies encompass three general policy areas: economic, environmental and social. This course will aim to raise students’ awareness of all three areas.

    CA3168 Building Information Modelling for Capital Projects

    This course is an introduction courses to BIM and provides students hands-on experience for applying BIM technologies to construction projects. This project-based course would allow the students to gain knowledge in implementing BIM throughout the lifecycle of capital projects, from planning, design, to construction, operation and demolition. In class, the course will only provide an introductory on BIM software tools instead of full-coverage training on software. Students are expected to conduct self-learning and exploring of the software to become able to use the tools effectively.

    CA5106 Project Management

    The aims of this course are to provide the students with an in-depth and advanced understanding of the project management principles. The rationale behind the choice of procurement strategies will be examined. In order to keep up with current ever-changing construction environment, not only the traditional fragmented approach of project management will be discussed, an integral approach, including value, supply chain, information, safety, health, risk assessment will also be examined. Construction project collaboration including partnering in various forms and with other countries, especially with PRC is also included in this course. Accordingly, issues in cross-cultural considerations and PRC ventures will also be discussed.

    GE2330 Smart and Sustainable City: A Liveable Future Through Technologies

    It is estimated that nearly 70% of the world population will live in cities in 2050. In the meanwhile, cities around the world are facing more enormous and complex challenges due to widespread urbanization, climate changes, energy crisis, air pollutions, traffic congestions and economic pressure. We expect these issues can be mitigated through the adoption of information and communication technologies (JCT) to encourage sustainable development, increase efficiency and improve quality of life. Therefore, the concept of smart and sustainable city is emerging as a new approach to city operations. This course will introduce the concept, framework and key technologies of smart cities in different fields (e.g., transportation, buildings), as well as discuss the impacts and barriers for implementing the concept of smart cities. Throughout the course, students will not only learn the key technologies in designing and implementing solutions for a smart and sustainable city, but also understand the challenges for implementing these solutions. Students are encouraged in critical thinking to adopt technological solutions to achieve smart and sustainable cities. Students will learn these topics through lectures, case studies, self-study and group projects.
