Department of Electronic Engineering

The world today is interconnected via a myriad of communication channels that may be either wired or wireless and with ever increasing amounts of data. Whether you are walking in the streets or travelling on the bus, nearly everyone can be seen checking emails, viewing the latest news, interconnecting socially or playing games. Everyone expects connectivity at any place and any time, but very few recognise the technology or the complexity involved in both the hardware and the software. The Department of Electronic Engineering offers majors that allow these technologies to function seamlessly across continents whether for work or for play. We offer three majors that have sufficient depth to prepare students to succeed in their technology driven career path and beyond, yet are broad enough to allow them to pursue other career paths. Most of the required courses in the first and second year are common to all three majors, covering mathematics, computing, circuits, information technology and computer programming. These courses set a solid foundation to prepare students for their third and final years.

The department offers majors in:

  • BEng Computer and Data Engineering
  • BEng Electronic and Communication Engineering
  • BEng Information Engineering

Strong links with industry have made our majors more applicable to Hong Kong. We have set up the CityU Apps Lab, showcasing many innovative and creative ideas from both students and staff.

 


Our Target

Computer and Date Engineering major provides students with a strong foundation and broad skills in computer and data technologies. Students will be equipped with the theoretical and practical aspects of computer systems. The curriculum encompasses hardware and software design, multimedia technologies, data analytics and security, cloud computing systems, and artificial intelligence. Upon completion of the major, students will be sufficiently prepared for employment, and to pursue postgraduate studies and engage in life-long learning.

電子計算機及數據工程學:培育專業電腦及數據工程師。教授電腦及數據技術,重點有電腦硬件及軟件設計、多媒體科技、數據分析及保安、雲端運算系統、人工智能等。


Electronic and Communication Engineering major provides students with a solid education in electronics and communications. Students will be exposed to the latest developments in wireless communications & optical communications, data technology & digital mobile, smart controls & power systems, e-security & e-circuit design, and AI engineering.
Our education will transform students into well-trained professional engineers with the skills and vision to enable students to progress further in their career path in this rapidly changing knowledge-based economy. The major will also equip students to pursue postgraduate studies.

隨著近日互聯網、寬帶、流動網絡、數碼技術及廣播,以及各類電子產品的迅速發展,香港特區政府已將「電子」和「通訊」定為其中兩個重點支持項目。 本課程旨在為電子、通訊及資訊工程業培育專業工程師,學生將具備專業技術和視野,並能設計及應用不同電子、通訊及資訊系統,迎接新科技帶來的挑戰。 內容主要教授電子及通訊科技知識,重點有 (1)無線通訊及光通訊系統; (2)數據技術及流動數碼;(3)智能管理及能源系統; (4)資訊保安及電子電路設計及 (5) 人工智能工程。
 

Information Engineering major provides students a balanced understanding of the theory and applications of information engineering, which encompasses networking and telecommunications, algorithms and software, cybersecurity and Forensics, artificial intelligence, and big data. It offers all-round education, which nurtures independent thinking, creativity, and various soft skills. Upon completion of the major, graduates will be sufficiently prepared for further studies or employment in a wide range of economic sectors, mainly technology, but also business, banking, finance and trading in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific region.

資訊工程學工學士課程目標:培育專業資訊工程師。教授電腦及資訊科技知識,重點有網絡與通訊、算法與軟件、網絡安全與鑑證、人工智能及大數據等。

Co-curricular Activities and Learning Support

Placement Schemes

In collaboration with industry, the Department aims to equip students early with real work experience before graduation through different placement schemes. We have Industrial Attachment Scheme (IAS) and Overseas Internship Scheme (OIS), which offer local and overseas summer placement opportunities; and a One-year Professional Internship Programme. 

 

International Exchange and Summer Camp

Uplifting students' global outreach and international competitiveness through student exchange is one of the Department's goals. In 2016/17 and 2017/18, close to 167 students were sent out to top universities in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Korea, mainland China, Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK and the USA 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 their studies 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.


Professional Recognition

The Department offers three majors in Computer and Data Engineering, Electronic and Communication Engineering, and Information Engineering. All the three majors have been accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers. Based on the Washington Accord, graduates receive reciprocal recognition from equivalent bodies in Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong-China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey, the UK and the US.
