Short Description

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 recognize the technologies used or the complexity involved in both the hardware and the software.

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers majors that allow these technologies to function seamlessly across continents whether for work or for play. We offer four majors that have sufficient depth to prepare students to succeed in their technology-driven career path and beyond, and yet are broad enough to allow them to pursue other career paths. Most of the required courses in the first and second years are common to all four majors, covering mathematics, physics, electronics devices and circuits, computer programming, and information technology. These courses set a solid foundation to prepare students for their third and final years. Strong links with industry have made our majors more applicable to Hong Kong.

The Department offers the majors:

  • BEng Computer and Data Engineering
  • BEng Electronic and Electrical Engineering
  • BEng Information Engineering
  • BEng Microelectronics Engineering

Admission Arrangements

JUPAS applicants will apply for admission to first-year studies in the Department of Electrical Engineering. Students will enter a major (major options: Computer and Data Engineering; Electronic and Electrical Engineering; Information Engineering; Microelectronics Engineering) after one year of study. The top 40% of students# will have a free choice of majors offered by the Department. The other 60% of students will be allocated a major within the Department, subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.
