Programme Aims

a)       To provide graduates of electronic and information engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, computer science and other related disciplines an opportunity for further study at postgraduate level.

b)       To enable students to meet new challenges and tap new opportunities in relevant fields by studying a broad choice of core subjects in multimedia technologies, telecommunications and electronic engineering.

c)        To enable students to acquire the latest technical know-how by registering for specialized subjects in a chosen area that focuses on the cutting edge issues facing the engineering profession today.


Intended Learning Outcomes of the Programme

a)    Professional competence of specialists/leaders of a discipline/profession:

Graduates will possess state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the areas within electronic and information engineering and be able to apply their knowledge. They will have the readiness for assuming a leadership role in their field of practice.

b)    Design capability:

Graduates will develop an ability to design an electronic system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as technical, environmental, social, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.

c)     Critical and creative thinking:

Graduates will be able to think holistically and/or strategically in dealing with complex problems and situations pertinent to their professional practice. They will be versatile problem solvers with good mastery of critical and creative thinking skills, who can generate practical and innovative solutions to novel problems.

d)    Lifelong learning capability:

Graduates will develop recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.



We provide update knowledge in the relevant technical fields in the core subjects.  According to their own background, interest, or career need, students can have free choices of the core subjects and electives.  By completing the requirements for the specialism award, students can opt for graduation with an award in MSc/PgD in Electronic and Information Engineering (Multimedia Signal Processing and Communications).
