BEng (Hons)/BSc (Hons) Scheme in Information and Artificial Intelligence Engineering 資訊及人工智能工程學(榮譽)工學士/理學士組合課程

INFO & AI ENGG

Short DescriptionUpdated

We are living in a smart era in which many of our daily decision-making processes are based on the collection, processing, analysis, and interpretation of a large amount of data and information. The Scheme encompasses three programmes that are aimed at training professionals who are interested to work in the following three inter-related areas: (1) electronic systems and Internet of Things; (2) artificial intelligence and information engineering; and (3) information security. Depending on their own areas of interest, students admitted into the Scheme are allowed to choose to specialize in one of these three areas.

Remarks:

  • Students will be awarded one of the following awards upon successful completion of the graduation requirements of the programme concerned:
    • BEng (Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things 電子系統及物聯網(榮譽)工學士
    • BSc (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering 人工智能及資訊工程學(榮譽)理學士
    • BSc (Hons) in Information Security 資訊安全(榮譽)理學士
  • Students are allowed to enrol on any awards without being subject to further assessment.
  • Students can take a number of extra electives to earn a Minor Award in areas such as applied mathematics, accountancy, business, finance or management, among others.
  • The option of Secondary Major in Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) is available to the students of BEng (Hons) in Internet-of-Things (a variant of BEng (Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things). Admission to the Secondary Major is on competitive basis and subject to a different credit requirement for graduation.
  • To give encouragement and recognition to HKDSE students with outstanding academic performance, and to support their studies at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), the Department of Electronic and Information Engineering (EIE) at PolyU launched the "EIE Academic Entrance Scholarship for Outstanding HKDSE Admittees" in the 2016-17 academic year. Details of the scholarship are given in the information sheet, which can be viewed here.
