Research Overview


Research Overview

The primary mission of the Department is to transmit, advance and apply electrical engineering knowledge.  Through innovative teaching, the Department produces high quality engineers and technologists, who are equipped with knowledge, skills, leadership and resourcefulness to deal with changes in the modern society.  Through applied research and consultancy, the Department provides high quality service to the industry and community. 


The Department’s research spans from fundamental research activities to large-scale system integrations.  In compliance with the research strategy of the University, the Department’s research activities are grouped under four areas to reflect its major research focuses.  The four areas are Photonics and Electrical Materials, Smart Mobility, Power System and Energy, Power Electronics and Utilities.  The optical fibre and material and device technologies emphasize on fundamental research and served as important platforms to underpin the development of the other three focused areas, allowing the Department to tackle engineering problems of a multidisciplinary nature, and cultivate strategic partnership with the electrical engineering industry in consultancy and product development.


The Department is very responsive to the rapid evolution of Electrical Engineering and will continue to actively contribute to the quality and practice of this important branch of engineering.
