What You Will Be Studying

First-year core courses are introductory courses in electronics and electrical engineering. This aims to provide students with a solid background for the more advanced courses in their later years of study. Courses are supplemented with plenty of hands-on experience to teach students the concepts and skills in analog circuits, digital circuits, and software programming. Upon completing these basic courses, students will learn more advanced courses in their second and final year.


The core subjects offered include Principles of Communications, Logic Circuit Design, Electronic Devices and Circuits, Signals and Systems, Microcomputer Systems, Computer Programming, Systems and Control, Introduction to Electric Power Systems, Introduction to Electric Machines and Drives, and Applied Electromagnetics. The majority of core courses are supported by relevant laboratory work. In addition, students will participate in a second-year “design project course” that will give them an opportunity to solve real-life problems and applications in an interdisciplinary and teamwork setting.


In the final year, students will choose technical electives that covers various specialized subject areas. Examples of electives include Microwave Circuits for 5G Wireless Product Design, Fundamentals of Antenna Design, Mobile Data Networks, Optical Fibre Communications, Introduction to Integrated Photonics, Sustainable Energy Systems, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence and Data Engineering and Learning Systems. Students will also work independently on their Final Year Project by solving problems at a high technological level. Those students who want to gain work experience before graduation may also apply to join the Professional Internship Program in their final year of study.


Start Your Career Here

To maintain Hong Kong's competitiveness, the government has taken steps to boost technology-based, high-value-added services and industries. Electronic and electrical technologies are among the areas identified for focused support. Even in the banking, finance and business sectors, personnel with a solid background in technology are in great demand in this increasingly complex technological age.


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 Professional Internship Programme of different durations: 4 months / 8 months / 12 months, providing flexibilities to suit the different needs of students and companies. 


International Exchange and Summer Exchange Programme

Uplifting students' global outreach and international competitiveness through student exchange is one of the Department's goals. Since 2015, more than 330 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. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the programme has been suspended since 2020.


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 in their studies through regular meetings and out-of-classroom time. The Scheme has successfully created a positive learning ambience among peers and has 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.


Student Achievements

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.


Professional Recognition

This Department offers four majors in Computer and Data Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Information Engineering, and Microelectronics Engineering. All the three current majors have been accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), while the design of Microelectronics Engineering curriculum is intended to obtain accreditation by HKIE. Based on the Washington Accord, graduates will receive reciprocal recognition from equivalent bodies in Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong-China, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Peru, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey, the UK and the US.
