What will I learn?

Three Streams

  • General
  • Communications Engineering
  • Power Engineering

Programme Introduction

The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has always striven to ensure that excellence in teaching goes hand-in-hand with excellence in research. In the light of its recent leading-edge research achievements in various areas of forefront technologies in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the EEE discipline, the Master of Science in Engineering in Electrical and Electronic Engineering [MSc(Eng)(EEE)] curriculum has been significantly updated and improved. The curriculum, based on three subject groups of cutting-edge technologies and management subjects, aims at providing a challenging opportunity for practitioners and industry leaders to refresh their knowledge of EEE, covering theory and practice in advanced topics such as biomedical engineering, computer systems, multimedia systems, networking, power systems, signal processing and wireless communications. Candidates who want updated broad foundation knowledge can pursue the General Stream of study, while candidates who want to specialise may pursue the Communications Engineering Stream or the Power Engineering Stream.

Students are required to complete either 48 credits plus a dissertation (equivalent to 24 credits), or 60 credits plus a project (equivalent to 12 credits) to graduate.
