Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This programme aims at producing graduates with a wide range of professional knowledge and skills that are relevant for a professional engineer in electronic and information engineering. The curriculum enables the students to develop a deep understanding of sound scientific principles, as well as abilities in effective communication, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, and life-long learning.

 

 

Characteristics

As electronic products become more miniaturised, intelligent and personal, they also become more influential in our daily lives. Examples of such products include digital cameras, smartphones, smart watches, GPS devices, digital entertainment devices, electronic medical equipment, wearable devices and so on. The design, development and manufacture of these products require professional competence in the areas of electronics, integrated circuits, computers, telecommunications, multimedia signal processing, software, embedded systems, and programming, which form the subject contents of this programme.
 

This programme emphasises both theory and applications in learning and teaching. The curriculum includes lectures, projects, presentations, laboratory exercises and various industry training and placement opportunities. After completing the fundamental subjects in Years One and Two, students may choose their professional development specialism by selecting subjects in different areas in Years Three and Four.
 

Students may also engage in an exchange scheme and earn recognised credits in a university outside of Hong Kong for one semester during Year Three.
 

The programme provides ample workplace training opportunities for students to gain work experience within and outside Hong Kong.

Curriculum

During Years One and Two, students study a set of fundamental subjects in electronics, engineering science, programming, information technology, mathematics and English. In Year Three, students study more advanced and specialised subjects in the areas of telecommunications, computers, data and computer communications, integrated circuits, embedded systems and programming. In Year Four, they can choose from a list of advanced technical elective subjects, and complete a capstone project to strengthen their technical knowledge and skills.
 

Information on the subjects offered can be obtained here.

Recognition and Prospects

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted provisional accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Provisional Accreditation Status enjoys all the rights and privileges that are equivalent to an accreditation status.

 

 

Career Prospects

Demand for engineering professionals in the manufacturing, service and telecommunications sectors of Hong Kong is very high. As Hong Kong's economy witnesses continual growth, graduates in electronic and information engineering are greatly needed to fill such posts as commercial, design and production engineers, sales and marketing engineers, and executives in the design and manufacture of various electronic and digital products, computer systems, networking, software, telecommunications and the Internet. Some of our graduates pursue further study or research in Hong Kong and abroad.

Student Message


As a new graduate of the Electronic and Information Engineering degree programme, I now have a great deal of useful knowledge covering areas such as the operating principles of  electronic components, data and mobile communication theories and various programming languages. I can now design electronic devices and develop application software.

The programme provides many opportunities for students to engage in group projects that consolidate the knowledge gained in class. For example, for the Integrated Project we had to construct an automatic robot that could move by tracking a white line and complete assigned tasks.

The EIE Department also has excellent facilities. There are a number of laboratories and computer labs equipped with useful software packages such as MatLab, Visual Studio and Eclipse. This convenient access helped us to complete our assignments and projects.

這短短四年的大學生涯是年青人一個很重要的成長階段。對於我來說,這是一個由讀書到投身社會工作的過渡期。這個課程除了學到有關電子、網路、編程等專門知識外,我還從中確定了自己職業的取向。通過長達一年的實習,我不但見識到一些理論如何付諸實際應用,還認識到公司的業務的具體運作情況,更親身體驗到辦公室文化的現實處境。這些經驗讓我可以更快地適應畢業後的工作環境。在我一度感到迷失、不清楚自己未來路向的時候,感謝導師一再給予我許多寶貴的意見、勉勵及提醒。我也很珍惜同學之間相處的日子。我們互相鼓勵和幫助,彼此一同成長,繼而一起踏進人生的另一個階段。
