Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims 

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.

 

Characteristics

As electronic products become more miniaturised, intelligent and personal, they also become more influential in our daily lives. Examples of such products include digital cameras, smartphones, smart watches, GPS devices, digital entertainment devices, electronic medical equipment, wearable devices, and so on. The design, development and manufacture of these products require professional competence in the areas of electronics, integrated circuits, computers, telecommunications, multimedia signal processing, software, embedded systems, and programming, which form the subject contents of this programme.
 

This programme emphasises both theory and application in learning and teaching. The curriculum includes lectures, projects, presentations, laboratory exercises and various industry training and placement opportunities. After completing the fundamental subjects in Year One, students may choose their professional development specialism by selecting subjects in different areas in Year Two.
 

The programme curriculum is designed for students who have already studied some fundamental subjects in electronics, engineering science, programming, information technology and mathematics. The Year One curriculum consists mainly of intermediate and advanced subjects in the areas of telecommunications, computers, data and computer communications, integrated circuits, control engineering, embedded systems and programming. In Year Two, students can choose from among a list of advanced technical elective subjects, and complete a capstone project to strengthen their technical knowledge and skills.
 

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