What will I learn?

Aims and Characteristics

Under the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/ Bachelor of Science (Honours) Scheme in Information and Artificial Intelligence Engineering, there are three undergraduate programmes, namely BEng(Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-Of-Things, BSc(Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering and BSc(Hons) in Information Security.

Students admitted to the scheme study together during the first year and then complete their preferred programme (one of the above three programmes), normally within three years. Under this arrangement, students can make their choice after they have obtained a better understanding of the programmes. There is a quota restriction on the above three programmes.

1. BEng (Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things

Programme Aims

The proposed programme aims at developing students into professionals in the fields of electronic and communication engineering with specialisms in the Internet-of-Things (IoT). The programme covers the leading edge technologies in electronic engineering, with a special focus on IoT and related applications.

2. BSc (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering

Programme Aims

Following the rapid expansion and dissemination of information and smart communication technologies in our daily life, professionals in the areas of information engineering and artificial intelligence are in great demand. This programme aims at developing students into artificial intelligence specialists and professionals in information engineering. The programme covers technological innovations in artificial intelligence and information engineering, focusing on machine perception and data science. Specifically, the programme aims at producing graduates with the following attributes:

a wide range of professional knowledge and skills relevant to Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering. These include technological innovations in artificial intelligence and information engineering, focusing on machine perception and data science, as well as applications related to information engineering, such as computer vision, healthcare technology, bioinformatics, natural language processing, and automatics robotics,

creativity and innovation,

adaptability to changing technology and society, and

all-rounded attributes.

Programme Characteristics and Intended Learning Outcomes

The Programme offers a good mix of basic theory, hands-on practice and application examples. In the latter part of Year Three, students make use of the knowledge that they have acquired to conduct an artificial intelligence-based Integrated Project.

For international students

If you have obtained HKDSE results as well as other qualifications (e.g. associate degree, higher diploma, diploma, certificate, etc.), either of which alone is sufficient to qualify you for consideration for admission to our schemes / programmes, you can apply either through JUPAS on the basis of HKDSE results or directly to PolyU on the basis of other qualifications. However, you can only choose to apply through one of these two routes for schemes / programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year. If you apply through JUPAS and to PolyU concurrently, your direct application to PolyU will NOT be considered.

GCE A-level / International A-level: GCE Advanced Level or International Advanced Level with passes in 3 AL, OR 2 AL and 2 AS subjects

International Baccalaureate (IB): A minimum score of 24 with at least grade 4 in 2 Higher Level subjects.

Non-local applicants are required to meet the following English language requirement:

A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 80 for the Internet-based test or 550 for the paper-based test; OR
