Abstract: Building services engineering is an important academic and professional subject area in Hong Kong. Basically, all the design, installation, testing, operation and maintenance of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, fire engineering systems, water supply and drainage systems, electrical services and control systems are included. Several degree programmes in building services engineering are offered at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Similar to other engineering disciplines, a certain level of mathematical competency is required in the programme. In this paper, engineering mathematics for satisfying the new requirements of those degree programmes is reviewed. Modified syllabuses to accomplish the use of the latest technology in this discipline are recommended. Further, the philosophy of providing a detailed but explicit guideline on how the teaching of engineering mathematics should be conducted is emphasized. A plan for the future development of a teaching portfolio for engineering mathematics has also been identified and discussed.
