BEng in Financial Technology 金融科技學

BENG FINTECH

Short Description

The Financial Technology programme aims at providing students with essential knowledge to apply new technology, especially information technology and data science techniques, to a variety of financial services. After four years of all-round education, students are expected to be able to derive and develop financial and managerial insights from big data, design and engineer innovative solutions to meet financial service needs, optimize financial decisions in complex business environments and understand and analyze the social, economic, security, and legal impact of their solutions. In collaboration with Peking University, we also offer a dual degree programme from which graduates receive a BENG degree in Financial Technology and a BSc degree in Financial Mathematics.
