Computer and Data Engineering major provides students with a strong foundation and broad skill in the core and related computer and data technologies. Students will be equipped with the theoretical and practical aspects of both hardware and software. In addition, the major provides opportunities for students to develop independent learning, organisational and communication skills. Upon completion of the major, graduates will be able to design and implement embedded systems and computer systems; and able to build data mining and data processing algorithms for analysing big data. They will also be sufficiently prepared to pursue postgraduate studies and engage in life-long learning.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied an engineering-related or a science-related discipline at a high school or post-secondary institution.
For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award in an engineering-related or science-related discipline.
For details about the curriculum structure of the programme, please visit the ‘Undergraduate Catalogue’ (Note: The catalogue for the 2016 cohort is for reference only. The 2017 catalogue will be published around July 2017.)
Given the rapid developments in computer technology and multimedia applications, graduates will find ample opportunities in IT products and services, and Data services. Potential employers include computer product development companies, software and system solutions companies, banks, finance and insurance companies and the Hong Kong SAR government.
Industrial Placement Scheme (IPS)
In collaboration with industry, the Department aims to provide students with real work experience during their university years and thus better preparing them for work upon graduation through the Industrial Placement Scheme. Student embark on the Scheme by:
Participating in group industrial projects;
Undertaking summer placement; and
Completing their Industrial Final Year Project.
Students are connected to prominent industrial and business leaders through the Scheme. Around 80-100 places will be secured each year for this Scheme.
Other internship schemes which have been in place for many years include the Industrial Attachment Scheme (IAS),and Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS), that offer summer placement local and overseas; as well as the 12-month Co-operative Education Scheme (CES).
International Exchange and Summer Camp
Uplifting students' global outreach and international competitiveness through student exchange is one of the Department's goals. In 2014/15 and 2015/16, close to 130 students were sent out to top universities in the USA, Singapore, Finland, Germany, Canada, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, UK, France, Belgium, Korea, Taiwan and mainland China for semester-long exchange and summer exchange.
Student Learning Support Schemes
Student learning is always the Department's top priority, facilitated by the long-established Course Tutoring Scheme and Peer Tutoring Scheme. The schemes aim to nurture good learning skills in our students, particularly during their first and second year with EE. Outstanding senior year students are selected to coach students in study through tutorials, regular meetings, and out-of-classroom time. The Schemes have successfully created a positive learning ambience among peers and have been well received among students.
Each year, approximately 60 scholarships worth over HK$700,000 are granted to students in the Department of Electronic Engineering.
Over the years, CityU Electronic Engineering students have won many top prizes in various international, regional and local competitions and award schemes. Click here for more information.
