What will I learn?

Information engineering encompasses Telecommunications, Networking, Information Processing and Cyber Security - all important and fast-growing industries in today's Information Age. "Tele" is the key to achieving something once considered impossible - we now have teleconferencing, telemedicine and tele-education. Networking is transforming modern society, and the ability to connect computers, people and businesses is generating many new opportunities, such as eCommerce, eLogistics and eLearning. With our ever-increasing reliance on communication and networking technologies for mission-critical applications, the mastering and management of cyber security has also become an essential requirement for most enterprises and organizations.

The mission of the Information Engineering Department is to nurture and educate engineering leader for the Information World of today and tomorrow. We offer an all-round engineering education that focus on:

  • Sound engineering knowledge and creativity
  • Solid experience with innovative technologies
  • Good soft skills (communication, interpersonal, and business)
  • Broad vision and exposure

Program Objectives

Our Programme is designed with the aim of training our students to have a good understanding of fundamental knowledge and objectives. The following program objectives state what our graduates will achieve in a few years after graduation:
