Notes:

  1. i/ Including non-credit-bearing course EE4090 Engineering Training.
    ii/ EE1001, EE1002,   EE1004 and GE1354 are not required for Advanced Standing I & II students.
    iii/ CS2311 is not required for Advanced Standing II students.
    iv/ Requirements on EE2000, EE2004, EE2005 and EE2331 will be considered case by case based on ASII students’ backgrounds in the subjects.
    v/ All students are required to take EE1000 in first Semester of their studies.
  2. Students are required to take at least FIVE electives of which TWO must be from each group.
  3. Normative 4-year degree and ASI students entering without Level 4 in HKDSE English Language are required to take LC0200A English for Academic Purposes 1 and LC0200B English for Academic Purposes 2 (EAP) of 6 credit units before progressing to GE1401 University English and GE2410 English for Engineering. Early exit arrangement is available that students achieving a grade B or above in their overall course results for LC0200A will be permitted to exit at this point and progress to the GE English courses.

    The credits earned from the EAP course(s) will not be counted towards the minimum credit units required for graduation nor be calculated in students’ CGPA. Students who are not admitted through JUPAS are invited upon enrolment to take the English Placement Test or to provide proof of alternative qualifications to be exempted from LC course http://www.cityu.edu.hk/elc/courses_exemption.html.
     

    ASII students are not required to take GE1401 nor LC0200A & LC0200B.

  4. Normative 4-year degree and ASI students entering without Level 4 in HKDSE Chinese Language are required to take a 3-credit-unit course CHIN1001 University Chinese I. The credits earned will not be counted towards the minimum credit units required for graduation nor be calculated in students’ CGPA.
     
  5. Normative 4-year degree students are required to take a minimum of 3 CUs from each of the following specified areas – 1/ Arts and Humanities, 2/ Study of Societies, Social and Business Organizations, and 3/ Science and Technology.
    Advanced Standing I students are required to take their 6CUs from two different areas above.

  6. College-specified courses for fulfilling the Gateway Education requirements
    MA1200/
    MA1300
    Calculus and Basic Linear Algebra I/
    Enhanced Calculus and Linear Algebra I
    3 credit units

    EE2066* Engineers in Society 3 credit units
    *Counted as “College-specified GE Course” for 4-year degree students, but counted as “Major Requirement” for Advanced Standing I/II students.
    ^ ASI and ASII students are required to take 6 credit units of MA courses from the above pairs.  Students exempted from either one or both of the above MA courses should take any course(s) not within the Major Requirement (including core courses and electives) to make up for the minimum curriculum requirement.
  7. Normative 4-year degree students are required to take two courses (6CUs) for their College Requirements (6 CUs). Courses include PHY1202 General Physics II, and CS1302 Introduction to Computer Programming.
  8. Students having completed EE4081 Professional Internship Program (6 CUs) will take one less elective (3CUs) and are not required to take EE2066 Engineers in Society (3CUs). For those who have completed 12-month internship in EE4081 are not required to take EE4090 Engineering Training.

Major Programme Features

The curriculum is structured as shown in the figure below. This major focuses on five areas: Hardware and Software Design, Data Analytics and Security, Cloud Computing Systems, Machine Learning and Control and Internet of Things.

Core courses include: engineering mathematics, logic circuits, electronic devices and circuits, computer programming, data engineering, data structures and algorithms, modelling techniques, microcomputer systems, database systems, operating system, data communications and networking, data engineering and learning systems, Java programming and applications, System-on-Chip Design, internet technology, signals and systems and Design Project.

In the final year, students may specialise in different areas of interest in preparation for their future careers and enjoy considerable flexibility in pursuing their interests through the selection of elective courses on topics such as artificial intelligence, computer vision, digital, audio technology, cybersecurity technology, digital forensics, cloud computing systems, iOS Mobile App Development and Networking, and data management techniques.
