Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

We provide advanced study opportunities for electrical engineers who work in power and electricity utilisation industries, electrical product manufacturing industries, government organisations, and contracting and consulting companies. Our students gain in-depth knowledge of state-of-the-art advancements in modern electrical science and technology, such as power systems, the industrial utilisation of electrical energy, power electronics, railway systems and drive control, automation, and optoelectronics.


The multidisciplinary nature of this programme encourages students to develop a broad perspective and allows them to take subjects in related technical fields, such as communications, computing, marketing, management and information sciences. The programme also allows students to take a combination of subjects and provides three specialism options:

  • ​​MSc in Electrical Engineering (Electrical Power Systems)#
    電機工程學理學碩士學位 (電力系統)#
  • MSc in Electrical Engineering (Electric Vehicles and Power Electronics)
    電機工程學理學碩士學位 (電動車輛及電力電子)
  • MSc in Electrical Engineering (Railway Systems)*
    電機工程學理學碩士學位 (鐵路系統)*

# The HK Electric Institute assists in teaching some of the designated subjects.
* MTR Academy assists in teaching some of the designated subjects.
