B.Eng. in Computer Engineering (CENGN)

The Computer Engineering (CE) Programme was established when the Faculty of Engineering was inaugurated in 1991. The programme emphasizes both computer hardware and software design. It offers courses in the areas of computer interfacing, embedded systems, very large-scale integration circuit design (VLSI), computer-aided design and microprocessor systems.

At the end of the course of studies, students will have

  1. acquired solid fundamental knowledge in mathematics, computer engineering with a breadth of inter-disciplinary knowledge;
  2. acquired independent thinking, possess problem-solving skills, and excel in the capability for self-learning to allow for life-long learning;
  3. acquired leadership qualities, and good communication, teamwork, social, and professional skills.

  1. to be able to identify, formulate, and solve computer engineering problems
  2. to be able to design, implement, test, and evaluate a computer system, component, or algorithm to meet desired needs
  3. to receive the broad education necessary to understand the impact of computer engineering solutions in a global and societal context
  4. to be able to communicate effectively
  5. to be able to succeed in research or industry related to computer engineering
  6. to have solid knowledge in computer engineering, including programming techniques, circuit design, micro-system prototyping, solid state device development, algorithms and theory, etc.
  7. to integrate well into and contribute to the local society and the global community related to computer engineering
  8. to practise high standard of professional ethics
  9. to be able to draw on and integrate knowledge from many related areas

Every student is assigned an academic advisor who meets with the students at least once a year for purposes of general supervision such as course selection, guided study, adaptation to University learning modes and disciplinary fundamentals, etc.  Students with academic problems or on academic probation / extended probation are required to have a monthly meeting with the academic advisor.

The programme is accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). Graduates are eligible to join Scheme A training of HKIE in the disciplines of Electronics (ENS) / Information (INF).
