Aims and Characteristics

Under the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/ Bachelor of Science (Honours) Scheme in Information and Artificial Intelligence Engineering, there are three undergraduate programmes, namely BEng(Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-Of-Things, BSc(Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering and BSc(Hons) in Information Security.

Students admitted to the scheme study together during the first year and then complete their preferred programme (one of the above three programmes), normally within three years. Under this arrangement, students can make their choice after they have obtained a better understanding of the programmes. There is a quota restriction on the above three programmes.

1. BEng (Hons) in Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things

Programme Aims

The proposed programme aims at developing students into professionals in the fields of electronic and communication engineering with specialisms in the Internet-of-Things (IoT). The programme covers the leading edge technologies in electronic engineering, with a special focus on IoT and related applications.

This Programme aims at producing graduates with:

1. a wide range of professional knowledge and skills relevant to Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things. These include artificial intelligence of things, robotics, sensor technologies, electronic devices, and their associated software to sense, measure, interpret, connect, and analyse data;

2. creativity and innovation;

3. adaptability to changing technology and society; and

4. all-rounded attributes.

Programme Characteristics and Intended Learning Outcomes

This programme emphasises both theory and applications. The curriculum includes the following components:

  • lectures;
  • tutorials;
  • hands-on laboratory classes;
  • Industrial Centre training;
  • projects (individual and group);
  • presentations; and
  • various industry placement opportunities.

On successful completion of the programme, the students will be able to:

Category A Professional/Academic Knowledge and Skills

1. Understand the fundamentals of science and engineering and have the ability to apply them.

2. Design and conduct experiments, as well as to evaluate the outcomes.

3. Design systems, components and processes to meet given specifications and constraints.

4. Identify, formulate and solve problems relevant to Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things.

5. Use modern engineering/IT tools appropriate to Electronic Systems and Internet-of-Things practice.

6. Know the contemporary issues and understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context.

Category B Attributes for All-roundedness

7. Work with others collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary team and have a knowledge of leadership.

8. Recognise social, professional and ethical responsibility.

9. Communicate effectively.

10. Recognize the need for and engage in life-long learning.

Students may choose to engage in overseas exchange schemes and earn recognised credits in a university outside of Hong Kong for one semester.

The programme also provides workplace training opportunities for students to gain work experience within and outside Hong Kong through Work-Integrated Education (WIE).

2. BSc (Hons) in Artificial Intelligence and Information Engineering

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.

On successful completion of the Programme, students will be able to:

Category A Professional/Academic Knowledge and Skills

1. Understand the fundamentals of mathematics, science and engineering, and have the ability to apply them.

2. Design and conduct experiments, as well as to evaluate the outcomes.

3. Design systems, components and processes to meet given specifications and constraints.

4. Identify, formulate and solve problems relevant to artificial intelligence and information engineering.

5. Use modern engineering/IT tools appropriate to artificial intelligence and information engineering.

6. Know the contemporary issues and understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context.

Category B Attributes for All-roundedness

7. Work with others collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary team and have a knowledge of leadership.

8. Recognize social, professional and ethical responsibility.

9. Communicate effectively.

10. Recognize the need for and engage in life-long learning.

3. BSc (Hons) in Information Security

Programme Aims

This Programme aims at producing graduates with:

  • a wide range of professional knowledge and skills relevant to information security;
  • 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 can make use of the knowledge that they have acquired to conduct an integrated project. During the summer of Year Three, students have the opportunity to join an internship programme. In the Final Year, students can focus on selected areas by choosing relevant electives.

Students can take part in the University’s 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 provides an excellent opportunity for students to study abroad and broaden their horizons and allows them to appreciate the cultures of other countries. Very positive experiences have been reported by students who have participated in the programme.

The intended learning outcomes of programme are the attributes of the graduates who have completed the Programme successfully. These attributes are classified into two broad categories. Category A consists of attributes such as knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes that are related to information security. Category B consists of the attributes that make our graduates all-rounded attributes and support their further development.

On successful completion of the Programme, students should be able to:

Category A: Professional/Academic Knowledge and Skills

1. Apply knowledge of mathematics and science appropriate to the discipline of information security.

2. Apply knowledge of information security to the abstraction and conceptualisation of information and communications technology (ICT) models.

3. Analyse an information security problem and identify and define the requirements appropriate to its solution.

4. Design, implement and evaluate an information security system, process, component, or program to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety and social and environmental considerations.

5. Use the current techniques, skills and tools for the practice in information security with an understanding of the limitations.

Category B: Attributes for All-Roundedness

6. Function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
