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. They can focus on selected areas by choosing relevant electives. In the Final Year, students must complete a Capstone Project.

Students can join an exchange programme that allows them to study in an overseas institution for one semester. Financial subsidies may be provided by the Faculty of Engineering. The exchange programme offers an excellent opportunity for students to study abroad and broaden their horizons and allows them to appreciate the cultures of other countries.
