Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

This programme combines sound scientific principles with engineering applications to help students develop into competent and effective engineering professionals in the areas of integrated circuit design, electronics, telecommunications, computers, embedded systems, and multimedia technologies and programming.

Programme Characteristics

This programme emphasises both theory and applications in learning and teaching. The curriculum includes:

  • lectures, projects
  • presentations
  • laboratory exercises and various industry placement opportunities.

After completing the fundamental subjects in Years One and Two, students choose their professional development specialism by selecting subjects in four different areas in Years Three and Four. The four areas of specialism are

  • circuits and systems
  • telecommunication and mobile
  • information security, and
  • information technology and multimedia

Students may also engage in overseas exchange scheme and earn recognised credits in a university outside of Hong Kong for one semester during Year Three.

The programme also provides workplace training opportunities for students to gain work experience within and outside Hong Kong through the Work Integrated Education (WIE) or One-year Internship Scheme (OIS).

Programme Structure

Years One and Two: Students study a set of fundamental subjects in electronics, engineering science, programming, information technology, mathematics and communication skills.

Year Three: Students study more advanced and specialised subjects in the areas of telecommunications, computers, data and computer communications, integrated circuits, embedded systems and programming. Students have to complete an integrated project and a multi-disciplinary project over a duration of two semesters.

Year Four: Students can choose from a list of technical elective subjects and complete a final-year project to strengthen their technical knowledge and skills. Some students may opt to join the OIS and work off-campus for one year and continue their study in Year Five.
