  • To give encouragement and recognition to HKDSE students with outstanding academic performance, and to support their studies at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering (EIE) at PolyU has launched the “EIE Academic Entrance Scholarship for Outstanding HKDSE Admittees” since the 2016-17 academic year. Details of the scholarship are given in the information sheet, which can be viewed here.
  • The credit requirements of this programme are indicative only and will be subject to review regularly.
  • Students can take a number of extra Electives to earn a Minor award in areas such as accountancy, business, finance or management, among others.

Aims & Characteristics

Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This programme combines sound scientific principles with engineering applications to help students develop into competent and effective engineering professionals in the areas of integrated circuit design, electronics, telecommunications, computers, embedded systems, and multimedia technologies and programming.


Programme Characteristics

This programme emphasises both theory and applications in learning and teaching. The curriculum includes

  • lectures, projects
  • presentations
  • laboratory exercises and various industry placement opportunities.


After completing the fundamental subjects in Years One and Two, students choose their professional development specialism by selecting subjects in four different areas in Years Three and Four. The four areas of specialism are

  • circuits and systems;
  • telecommunication and mobile;
  • information security; and
  • information technology and multimedia.


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


The programme also provides workplace training opportunities for students to gain work experience within and outside Hong Kong through Work-Integrated Education (WIE).

Recognition & Prospects

Recognition and Prospects

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and recognised by all signatories of the Washington Accord. Graduates of the programme will satisfy the academic requirements for Corporate membership of the HKIE.



Years One and Two: Students study a set of fundamental subjects in electronics, engineering science, programming, information technology, mathematics and communication skills.

Year Three: Students study more advanced and specialised subjects in the areas of telecommunications, computers, data and computer communications, integrated circuits, control engineering, embedded systems and programming. Students have to complete an integrated project and a multi-disciplinary project over a duration of two semesters.

Year Four: Students can choose from a list of technical elective subjects and complete a final-year design project to strengthen their technical knowledge and skills. 

Information on the subjects offered can be obtained here.

Student Message

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 different 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 finish our assignments and projects.
