Aims and Characteristics

The Engineering Doctorate Programme (EngD, programme code 05001) is a self-financed advance programme, caters for those who wants to pursue advanced electrical engineering studies beyond Master Degree level. This doctorate programme consists of half coursework and half research. The coursework will consist mainly of advanced subjects from our MSc. pool, whereas the research will be an innovative type of study with strong industrial application characteristics. 

To train engineers who are capable of demonstrating creative skills in the application of advanced knowledge in electrical engineering, and to develop innovative thinking while solving real industrial problems.
To enhance the professional competence of the students who are already, or have the potential to rise to senior management or principal research/development positions.
