Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes
This programme provides in-depth coverage of electrical engineering according to an outcome-based education philosophy. The programme produce engineers who are able to practise their professions in a wide range of areas of electrical engineering, such as electrical power systems, energy conversion and utilisation, transportation systems, environmental protection, control, and computer and fibre-optic applications.
A modern electrical engineer should possess a broad-based education and the specialist knowledge needed to undertake high-level work in design, planning, supervision and manufacturing. The programme thus places emphasis on the mastery of fundamental principles and application of the latest engineering technology. Of equal importance is training in leadership, entrepreneurship, and communication skills.
We encourage lifelong learning to enable graduates to keep abreast of new developments in engineering and technology.
This programme is a major electrical engineering degree programme in Hong Kong that provides unique and up-to-date education in the interesting field of electrical power and energy.
The curriculum is designed to give a balanced treatment of university core requirement, electrical engineering fundamentals, advanced and specialist topics, and non-technical subjects such as economics and management.
Engineering practice is an integrated component of the curriculum. Student learning is supplemented by a variety of laboratory, training and project activities. Students also develop good presentation and problem-solving skills through mini-projects and final-year projects. Students are required to take the Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component, which may be in the form of summer training or industrial attachment.
Students can also participate in exchange programmes and spend a semester at an overseas university. Every year, a number of students participate in exchange programmes with institutions including the Cardiff University, the National University of Singapore, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, the Technical University of Munich and Czech Technical University.
Seminars, industry visits and overseas study tours are also organised to broaden students' horizons.
The programme has received full accreditation from the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE).
Our graduates have numerous employment opportunities in engineering planning and design, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and servicing, engineering sales and research.
Graduates are able to develop rewarding careers in major utility and transportation companies such as CLP Power Hong Kong Limited, the Hongkong Electric Company Limited and the MTR Corporation Limited. They are also employed by engineering consultant firms, contractor companies, international engineering enterprises, electrical product manufacturers and the Government of the HKSAR.
