Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes

Following the expansion and dissemination of information and smart communication technologies in our daily lives, professionals in the areas of communication networks, multimedia and information technologies are in great need. This programme aims to meet that need by providing professional knowledge and training for students to enter careers in the field of Internet and multimedia technologies. Specifically, the programme aims at producing graduates with:

  • a wide range of professional knowledge and skills relevant to Internet and multimedia technologies;
  • creativity and the ability to innovate;
  • adaptability to changing technology and society; and
  • all-round attributes.

Programme Characteristics

The programme offers a good mix of basic theory, hands-on practice and application examples. In the latter part of Year Three, students make use of the knowledge that they have acquired to conduct a multimedia-based Integrated Project. They can focus on selected areas by choosing relevant Electives. In the Final Year, students undertake a Final-Year Project.

Students can join an Exchange Programme through which they study in an overseas institution for one semester. Financial subsidies may be provided by the Faculty of Engineering. The programme provides an excellent opportunity for students to study abroad and broaden their horizons, and allows them to appreciate the cultures of other countries.

Programme Structure

The programme covers the fundamentals and advanced applications of Internet and multimedia technologies.

Years One, Two and Three are devoted to core subjects that cover the theories and applications of computers, mobile systems, programming, data and computer communications, databases, multimedia technologies and 3D graphics, computer animation, digital video production and broadcasting, image and audio processing, IP networks, web systems and technologies, together with an Integrated Project.

In Year Four, students can select from a pool of the following Electives.

  • Computer Graphics
  • Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
  • Distributed Systems & Cloud Computing
  • Final-Year Project/Computer Game Development Project (6 credits) (select any 1 out of these 2 subjects)
  • Mobile Computing
  • Mobile Networking
  • Multimedia Communications
  • Multimodal Human Computer Interaction Technology
  • Network Management and Security
