BSc(Hons) in Computing graduates can become programmers, system developers, software engineers, sales engineers or webmasters. Our graduates find employment opportunities in sectors such as the government, software houses, e-commerce, banking, finance, public facilities and freight forwarding.
BSc(Hons) in Enterprise Information Systems graduates can take up technical positions as programmers, system analysts, system developers, software engineers and system administrators, and less technical positions including technical sales and sales engineers, project managers, web administrators and web services designers.
BSc(Hons) in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence graduates are expected to become financial technologists who can fill the talent gap of the fast growing FinTech field. Opportunities in FinTech are extensive both in Hong Kong and worldwide, and include careers such as financial consultants, AI consultants, financial data analysts, FinTech system developer and entrepreneurs.
