We aim to provide students with a strong foundation and broad skills in computer and data analysis technologies. Students will be equipped with the knowledge in both theoretical and practical aspects of computer systems. The curriculum encompasses hardware and software design, multimedia technologies, data analytics and security, cloud computing systems, machine learning, 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.
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.
HKDSE students will apply through JUPAS. They may select this major after one year of study at the Department of Electrical Engineering (JS1205).
For details about the curriculum structure of the programme, please visit the 'Undergraduate Catalogue' (Note: The catalogue for the 2020 cohort is for reference only. The 2021 catalogue will be published around July 2021.)
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.
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 Exchange Programme
Uplifting students' global outreach and international competitiveness through student exchange is one of the Department's goals. Since 2017, more than 170 students have been sent out to top universities in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Japan, Korea, mainland China, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK and the USA for semester-long exchange and summer exchange.
Student Learning Support Scheme
Student learning is always the Department's top priority, facilitated by the long-established Student Tutoring Scheme. The scheme aims 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 their studies through regular meetings, and out-of-classroom time. The Scheme has successfully created a positive learning ambience among peers and have been well received among students.
Each year, approximately 60 scholarships worth over HK$1 million are granted to students in the Department of Electrical Engineering.
Over the years, CityU Electrical Engineering students have won many top prizes in various international, regional and local competitions and award schemes. Click here for more information.
