Abstract
The scale and complexity of civil engineering projects are increasing exponentially. Coupled with the growing trend of globalisation, the demand for high-calibre civil engineers who are also knowledgeable in legal matters is increasing. Driven by an aspiration to prepare civil engineering graduates with a solid foundation in both civil engineering and law, The University of Hong Kong has developed the first 5-year credit-based double professional degree programme in Hong Kong, which leads to the award of the degrees of Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering (Law) and Bachelor of Laws. The considerations, development process and launching details of the programme are presented in this paper. The students admitted to date perform better academically than other civil engineering students on civil engineering courses. However, they do not perform as well as law students and other law-related double-degree students.
