The aim of this major is to provide students with a strong foundation in the core computer 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 analyse, design and implement digital and computer systems. They will also be sufficiently prepared to pursue postgraduate studies and recognise the need for, and engage in, life-long learning
Given the rapid developments in computer technology and multimedia applications, graduates will find ample opportunities in both hardware and software development positions for IT products and services. Potential employers include computer product development companies, software and system solutions companies, banks, finance and insurance companies and the Hong Kong SAR Government.
To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied an engineering- or science-related discipline at a high school or post-secondary institution.
For senior-year admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed the AD/HD award with a CGPA of ≥3.0, or an equivalent overall mark or credit award in an engineering- or science-related discipline.
HKDSE students will apply through JUPAS. They may select this major after admission to the College of Science and Engineering (Engineering). For details, click here.

Industrial Placement Scheme (IPS)
The Department runs an Industrial Placement Scheme, which was launched in 2010/11. In collaboration with the industry, the Scheme aims to provide students with real work experience during their university years to better prepare them for employment after graduation. The Scheme starts at the beginning of year 2 or 3 in the 3-year major/4-year curriculum and continues until graduation. There are three interrelated stages under the Scheme:
Participating students work on group industrial projects;
Well-prepared students undertake summer placement the following summer; and
Well-prepared students work on an industrial Final Year Project.
The Department places great emphasis on students' experiential learning. This adds more value to the major and enhances students’ employability upon graduation. Around 150 places will be secured each year for this Scheme.
Additional internship schemes that have been in place for many years include the Industrial Attachment Scheme (IAS), the Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS), and the 12-month Co-operative Education Scheme (CES). Some students are offered jobs directly by the partner companies upon their graduation.
One of the Department's goals is to elevate students' global outreach and international competitiveness by raising the proportion of students joining student exchange programmes. In the recent past, a yearly average of around 20 students successfully grasped the chance to participate in exchanges with top universities in the USA, Singapore, Finland, Germany, Canada, Korea and mainland China. Likewise, due to the urgency of internationalisation, our department has annually hosted around 20 inbound exchange students yearly from Turkey, Korea, Germany, the USA, and mainland China. Their affiliation contributes to a multicultural environment that widens our students' horizons.
Course Tutoring Scheme
Student learning is always the Department's top priority, facilitated by the Course Tutoring Scheme, which is a well-received initiative that was introduced in 2010/11. The scheme is designed to nurture good learning skills in our students, particularly during their first year. Outstanding senior students are assigned as Student Tutors and participate in tutorial classes and guide students through the course content during and outside tutorial hours. The scheme not only enhances students' understanding of course content, but also creates a positive learning atmosphere among peers.
Each year, some 70 scholarships worth over HK$900,000 are awarded 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.
