【教育王國】英國讀Engineering有根基有彈性

話說香港人傳統的「發三師」,是醫師、律師、會計師,工程師並不佔一席位。然而隨著工程師的地位和專業資格越來越受社會器重,收入亦水漲船高。不少人都覺得三師早應要加入工程師改為四師,而在談論到神科時,自然不得不談Engineering。

一個合資格的工程師不論在發展中或已發展的地區都一樣有市場。英國出產的工程師,就更加是全球渴市。英國的工程教育走得前,培養出的工程人才造就了一場轟轟烈烈的工業革命。到了今天,全球工程十大學府有三間便在英國,論根基論聲譽,英國在培育工程師的教育都是一流有保證的。

根據英國文化協會數字,2014/15年間共有十二萬學生在英國大學正修讀各式工程課程,海外生佔四分一。對於海外學生來說,去英國讀工程除了招牌靚,出路有保障(近77%工程科學生畢業後馬上受到聘用),另一吸引處是完成的時間相對較許多其他國家短,可以令他們更快投身職場及早發展專業。

工程學位資歷一般是BSc或BEng ,大多數大學提供四年本科課程,但部份亦設integrated masters degrees(MEng),可以讓同學更快能在認可的專業機構掛牌,正式成為註冊工程師。

英國的Engineering課程修讀模式富零活性,也是能在海外生中大賣的一個原因。大多數課程都有全讀和兼讀的選擇,而不少大學更推出所謂三文治式課程,即修讀本科學位期間,夾有一年在職實習 ,讓各位未來工程師可以從中吸收工作實戰經驗之餘更同時省靚CV,這一年寶貴經驗往往成為同學將來在眾求職者中脫穎而出的一大優勢。

眾所周知,Engineering的範疇很多很廣,以下是英國的大學常提供的工程科目:

通用工程 (General Engineering): 涉及設計、起建、運用及維修引掣、機械及建築結構等等。此科橫跨多個範圍,學習題目由納米科技到水力發電不等,極具挑戰性。

電機及電子工程 (Electrical and Electronics Engineering): 是門大小通吃的學問,大至發電供電小至電子產品的電路系統,總之有電的地方都關電機及電子工程師事,由城市策劃到產品設計都是他們的地盤,出路極廣。

機械工程(Mechanical Engineering):以物理、數學及物料科學等原理應用於機械系統的設計、分析、生產及維修之上,它是工程學中最古老、範圍亦最廣的支系之一。

化學工程(Chemical Engineering):研究化學工業中的化學和物理過程,以及其規律和原理,亦會探究各種可以用生產有用物質和材料的化學及生物程序。

土木工程(Civil Engineering):土木工程師透過深入研究資源和民生,從而設計及建造提高市民生活質素的大型基礎建設項目。交通、水利、能源系統等通通都歸屬於土木工程的範圍。

電腦工程(Computer Engineering):又稱計算機工程。電腦工程師將硬件和軟件技術結合,並運用他們對電路、裝置和系統層面的電腦知識,來創造產品或解決工程問題。

這麼多工程支系,有些同學可能只想專攻一科,有些同學則可能瓣瓣都蠢蠢欲試,幸而不少英國大學提供單科、雙併、多科合併的工程學位課程,讓同學們都能有最適合自己的學業選擇。

當然,不管是那個範疇的工程學,箇中學問技能都深澀艱難,所以大學對工程系考生的要求也相當高。以A level為例,受歡迎的大學工程系通常要有三科達A或B水準,ABB已是普遍的基本要求。不少大學校會要求三科成績中必要包括數學科,亦有額外要求有物理科。假如同學沒有考物理,個別大學亦會接受科學、電腦甚至設計有關的科目。至於A level無Maths的同學是否完全入Engineering無望? 又未必,原來有些大學的工程系會安排沒有A level數學在手的同學另考數學試來作評核。由此可見要入工程系同學未必一定要有A level數學成績,但有優異的數學能力就幾乎是肯定的。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
