Unfortunately, due to COVID, the programme was suspended in 2020 and 2021.
Student Learning Support Schemes
Student learning is always the Department’s top priority, facilitated by the long-established Student Tutoring Scheme. The scheme 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 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.
This Department offers four majors in Computer and Data Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Information Engineering, and Microelectronics Engineering (pending approval). 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.
