What will I learn?

Technological advances in electronic engineering are in sync with the contemporary era and incorporated everywhere in our daily lives: in computers, telecommunication networks, smart phones, digital cameras, medical equipment, security and surveillance systems, etc. The work of electronic engineers includes the invention, design, development and manufacture of all kinds of analogue and digital electronic systems, as well as the development of the software needed to make these systems function.

Our Department was the first to introduce undergraduate programme in the Faculty of Engineering, CUHK. We have been committing to nurture future leaders in the electronic engineering field, and to invent advance state-of-the-art technology. The Electronic Engineering Programme features a dynamic and adaptive curriculum with a wide coverage on the latest technological developments. The courses offered are designed to convey both theoretical and practical knowledge and to provide balanced training in both hardware and software skills. The major topics of study include: Multimedia and Signal Processing, Integrated Circuits (IC) Technology, Microwave Engineering and Wireless Communications, and Microelectronics and Photonics. Apart from hands-on experience gaining from group projects, students are also encouraged to join the Work-Study programme and spend one year working in industry to enrich their practical experiences.

The 4-year programme of study leads to a Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) honours degree, accredited by The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) and The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). Students graduating with requirement fulfilment would be recognized as qualified engineers.

Career Prospects:

A degree in Electronic Engineering provides a solid foundation to launch your career locally or globally with excellent prospects in a wide range of technological sectors, which include: telecommunications, broadcasting, automotive electronics, railway, electric power, semiconductor, medical equipment, government agencies (EMSD and ICAC are examples), information technology, industrial manufacturing, and product design. Some of our graduates choose to pursue postgraduate studies in local or overseas institutions.
