Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes
This programme provides in-depth coverage of electrical engineering according to an outcome-based education philosophy. The programme aims to produce engineers who are able to practise their profession in the broad area of electrical engineering, which includes, but is not limited to, 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 adequate specialist knowledge to undertake high-level work in design, planning, supervision and manufacturing. The programme thus emphasises the mastery of fundamental principles and applications of the latest engineering technology. Of equal importance is training in leadership, entrepreneurship, and communication skills.
We encourage life-long learning so that graduates can 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 requirements, 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. They are also required to take the Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component, which may be in the form of summer training or an industry attachment.
Engineering and Entrepreneurship Club (E&E Club) provides a platform to enhance students’ interests in engineering and understanding of entrepreneurship. E&E Club organizes workshops to train students’ technical skills and invites experts to share requirements of entrepreneurship with students. It also supports students participating in both local and overseas underwater robot competitions.
Seminars, industry visits and overseas study tours are organized to broaden students' horizons.
The programme for senior year students consists of the following:
General University Requirement (GUR) [9 credits]
Remarks: Those students not meeting the equivalent standard of the Undergraduate Degree LCR (based on their previous studies in AD/HD programmes and their academic performance) will be required to take degree LCR subjects on top of the normal curriculum requirement.
Discipline-Specific Requirements (DSR) [52 credits out of the followings]
Students are considered for credit transfers based on their previous studies in AD/HD programmes and their academic performance.
Training Credits [11 credits]
Students are required to take the Work-Integrated Education (WIE) component, which can be in the form of summer training or industrial attachment.
Students may be required to take additional subjects if they do not have pre-requisite knowledge for all of the above subjects.
The programme has been granted full accreditation by 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.
A Higher Diploma or an Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering or a relevant discipline.
