Note to Applicants
We provide advanced study opportunities for electrical engineers who work in power and electricity utilisation industries, electrical product manufacturing industries, government organisations, and contracting and consulting companies. Our students gain in-depth knowledge of state-of-the-art advancements in modern electrical science and technology, such as power systems, the industrial utilisation of electrical energy, power electronics, railway systems and drive control, automation, and optoelectronics.
The multidisciplinary nature of this programme encourages students to develop a broad perspective and allows them to take subjects in related technical fields, such as communications, computing, marketing, management and information sciences. The programme also allows students to take a combination of subjects and provides three specialism options:
# The HK Electric Institute assists in teaching some of the designated subjects.
* MTR Academy assists in teaching some of the designated subjects.
Two levels of awards, namely the Master of Science Degree (MSc) and Postgraduate Diploma (PgD), are offered to students who successfully complete the required content of the respective awards. The awards can be in any one of the following areas (specialisms):
Graduates of this programme have in-depth knowledge of the latest advances in electrical engineering and are able to undertake advanced technical and managerial work in electrical engineering and related engineering fields.
After enrolling in the MSc in Electrical Engineering programme, students can select from a wide range of subjects offered under the Postgraduate Scheme in Engineering, including core engineering subjects and subjects offered by other disciplines, such as accounting, computing, construction and the environment, and logistics. Students can also select a combination of subjects that will allow them to graduate with a Specialism Award. In general, each subject is taught through one evening class per week over a 13-week semester. Full-time students normally take three to five subjects per semester. Part-time students normally take two subjects per semester. Each taught subject corresponds to three credits, and the dissertation corresponds to nine credits.
