CUHK - Electronic Engineering - Course List

Each M.Sc. student must take and pass 8 courses (24 units) in this programme. Subject to the approval of the Programme Directors concerned, students can take at most two courses from other M.Sc. Programmes within the Faculty of Engineering. Full-time mode students are allowed to take other day time postgraduate courses offered by the Department of Electronic Engineering. Students may apply for course and unit exemption for a maximum of 2 courses (6 units) suject to the approval of the Programme Director and the Dean of the Graduate School on a case-by-case basis, taking into account individual circumstances. In any case, at least 6 courses (18 units) must be from ELEG5xxx courses.

The following table lists the M.Sc. courses in Electronic Engineering. About eight of them are offered each year. The latest teaching time table can be found in the Graduate School web page. (http://www.gs.cuhk.edu.hk/page/TeachingTimetable)
