COMPUTER SCI & ENG

Short Description

Computer Engineering (CENG) and Computer Science (CSCI) are four-year programmes offered by The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), which is the first computer science department in Hong Kong that started to launch its undergraduate major programme in 1978.

While both CENG and CSCI are rigorously founded on problem solving by programming, data structure, and algorithm design, CENG distinguishes itself from others by offering specialized training for students in areas such as mobile embedded systems, microprocessors, VLSI design, hardware-aided security, and super-computing. On the other hand, CSCI focuses more on software innovation and offers diverse specialized areas such as artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, big data analytics, cloud computing, computer and network security, database and information systems, graphics and computer vision, and machine learning.

With effect from 2022-23, students can be directly admitted to the CSE department through department-based admission. After the first year of study, eligible students will be invited to declare their major in CENG or CSCI. Students with outstanding HKDSE results and good academic performance in the first year of study are guaranteed their first choice of major.
