To maintain Hong Kong's competitiveness, the government has taken steps to boost technology-based, high-value-added services and industries. Electronics and communications 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.
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. In 2017/18 and 2018/19, close to 161 students were sent out to top universities in 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 in their studies through tutorials, 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 of 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.
