MSc Studentship Project Scheme*

  • The MSc Studentship Project Scheme was established in 2013/14 for MSc in EIE students undertaking their MSc dissertations, aiming to encourage students with good performance.

  • While undertaking their MSc dissertations, students awarded these studentships will simultaneously undertake part-time research assistant positions under the direction of their supervisors, with monthly support of HK$6,000 from the Department for 12 months. The research project tasks assigned to students are expected to be in areas closely related to their MSc dissertations. Please click here for more details on the Scheme.


* PolyU reserves the right to change or withdraw the scholarship/studentship at any time. In case of any dispute/disagreement, PolyU’s decision is final.

Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This programme aims to provide graduates of electronic engineering, information engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, computer science and other related disciplines with an opportunity for further study at the postgraduate level. Students have a broad choice of core subjects in areas such as multimedia technologies, the internet of things (IoT), telecommunications and machine intelligence, offering them fresh challenges and new opportunities in relevant fields. Students can acquire the latest technical know-how by registering for specialised subjects in a chosen area that focuses on current issues facing the engineering profession today. Students who have managerial responsibilities can take electives in business or management according to their interests and career needs.


  • Application-oriented and practical curriculum that addresses the latest technologies and their applications

  • Modern and flexible teaching approach, with some subjects delivered in workshop mode

  • Subjects taught by eminent international and local experts

  • Emphasis on interactive and student-centred learning

  • Authentic and work-related assessments, allowing students to fully demonstrate their competence

The programme also provides two specialism study options:

  • MSc in Electronic and Information Engineering (Internet of Things)

This specialism caters to the emerging needs of IoT experts in the industry and covers cutting-edge technologies, such as wireless communications, sensor networks and IoT applications, enabling students to develop advanced knowledge in these fields.

  • MSc in Electronic and Information Engineering (Multimedia Signal Processing and Communications)

This specialism provides postgraduate-level professional and technical training to practitioners in the field, enabling them to keep pace with the ever-growing market needs and business opportunities related to multimedia technology.

Local students have the flexibility to vary their studies from semester to semester according to their personal aspirations. For example, a local student can study full-time in one semester and choose to switch to part-time study in the next semester, and vice versa. The flexibility of non-local students is constrained by visa requirements. Students can manage their own pace of study, subject to certain regulations on registration and assessment.
