BEng in Electrical Engineering
What is Electrical Engineering?
The Electrical Engineering programme is designed to provide students with a sound fundamental education in all areas of electrical engineering. As electrical energy is the backbone of modern civilization, the programme has received overwhelming support from the government and leading industries, including the offer of many scholarships, prizes, training places and employment. The core of the programme equip students with fundamental knowledge in electrical engineering, including electromagnetic theory, energy conversion, electronics, communications, signal processing, information technology, control theory, computers and software engineering. Through the choice of electives, students may subsequently specialize in electrical energy related areas, such as electric power systems, electric railways, electric vehicles, power electronics and building services. Our aim is to educate students to become professional electrical engineers to meet the societal needs.

ProgrammeThe 4-year Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering (CivE) provides students with the academic qualification towards the professional status of a Civil Engineer. Students also have the option to take various Minor programmes from within or outside of the Faculty of Engineering. In the CivE programme, students will learn and acquire the required knowledge in the following areas, in addition to various common core and language courses: Background mathematics and applied science courses including structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, material science and environmental studies Structural engineering courses, e.g., analysis and design of concrete and steel structures Geotechnical engineering courses, e.g., engineering geology, solid mechanics, foundation design Hydraulic and hydrology courses, e.g., water cycle, flows in ducts and channels Environmental engineering courses, e.g., wastewater treatment, solid waste management Construction management courses Transportation engineering courses Discipline group projects, Individual Final Year Projects and Capstone Design Projects
Professional RecognitionThe BEng(CivE) programme is fully accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Honours degree graduates meet the academic requirements for corporate membership of HKIE. Most of our graduates become corporate members of HKIE and obtain the status of Registered Professional Engineer after three or more years of approved working experience.
Career ProspectsOur graduates have been contributing to the design, construction and safe-keeping of the impressive infrastructure in Hong Kong as well as in other places of the world. Most of our graduates are employed by works departments in the Hong Kong Government, engineering consultant firms and construction companies. They work on all types of infrastructure development projects; such as those related to highways projects, transportation-related projects, building projects, water supply projects, drainage and flood prevention projects, environmental engineering and pollution control projects.
