Aims and Characteristics
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
