    When I decided to start my engineering degree at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, I wasn't sure where it was going to take me. But along the way, I found myself drawn to civil engineering and became interested in the civil industry. Studying at the university gave me the start I needed. The application for my program was submitted online for $450.
