M.SC. SCHOLARSHIPS

Admission Scholarship

A limited number of "Admission Scholarship" will be awarded to newly admitted students with exceptional academic standing.

Academic Scholarship

Students of MSc Programme in Electronic Engineering in a year graduated with an accumulated GPA of 3.5 or above will be awarded Academic Scholarships.

Emphases

Continuous professional development is essential to electronic engineers to open new doors and to excel at work. This is what we want to offer in our Master's Degree programme. Success means not only to drive your career forward, but as proven by our Founding Chairman, Professor Charles Kao, to win world accolade as a Nobel Laureate.

Today's electronic engineers face many new challenges. Many new applications require multi-disciplinary skill. More than just conventional electronics, one needs to understand optics, solar technology and nano devices etc. There is a paradigm shift in design considerations. Cost effectiveness and high performance are no longer the only concerns. Engineers are asked to grasp issues like green regulations and carbon emission factor, etc. Added to all this, there is a trend of moving from electrons to photons in order to maintain the accelerating speed in computing and communication. This is why we are offering a programme which is wide in coverage and allows students to choose freely according to their aspirations and interests.

We also offer opportunities for students to engage with our research laboratories on a voluntary basis or subscription of a project course.

Advanced Technology Courses

The programme includes advanced subjects in areas of solid-state devices, photonics, fiber network, video technology and VLSI:

ELEG5753 Flexible Electronics and Solar Cell Technology
Review of semiconductor fundamentals; Introduction to organic semiconductors; Applications of organic thin films as active components in optoelectronic devices including; Fabrication methods for flexible electronics; Fundamentals of photo-electric conversion; Basic principles of photovoltaic devices; Introduction to four-generation solar technologies; Light harvesting and management techniques; Applications.
ELEG5754 Solid-state Sensors and Lighting Systems
Comparison between different lighting sources, lighting standards, basics of all-solid-state lamps, solid-state lighting systems, sensor fundamentals, signal conditioning, functional aspects of different sensors, sensor device examples, technology trend and challenges of solid-state lighting and sensor devices.
ELEG5755 Optical Communication and Interconnects
Overview of optical fibre communications. Types and properties of fibres. Optical transmitters, receivers, and repeaters. Passive optical component. Optical modulation and multiplexing techniques. Fibre communication systems. Optical networks. Introduction to optical interconnects. Silicon photonics. Active optical cables. Recent trends in optical interconnects.
ELEG5757 Wearable Bioelectronics
Introduction to health informatics, fundamentals in electro-physiologies, reviews on bio-electronics including ion channels, bio-sensor principles, e-textile sensing, flexible-stretchable-printable bioelectronics, organic transistors, wearable design by "MINDS" (Miniaturization, Intelligence, Networking, Digitization, and Standardization), wearable medical devices and systems, wearable robotics, implantable therapeutic systems, sensor informatics, applications, and topics of current interests.
ELEG5758 VLSI Digital Signal processing
TThis course will offer an overview of basic digital circuit design. It will then move on to advanced design techniques and at the same time covers a hardware design language, Verilog. The rest of the course will describe formal methods to optimize digital signal processing implementation. Methods include pipelining, parallel processing, retiming, unfolding and folding. This course will have a practical exercise to offer students opportunity to go through a digital signal processing implementation from algorithm specification to hardware.
ELEG5726 Power Management Technology
This course is designed for students to gain an understanding of technological development of power-management IC design. Through this course, students will learn the essentials of voltage-regulator design. Recent advances in selected topics will also be discussed.

 

Venue & Facilities

The classes will be held in weekday evenings in the University campus in Shatin. Through application, students can use various facilities and service in the Department of Electronic Engineering, and the University, e.g. computer laboratory and the University Library services.

The Department

The history of our department precedes the Faculty of Engineering. Its rich history has enabled the department to excel in all fronts. Over the past 47 years, we have nourished more than 3,800 graduates. Many of them are now in influential positions in their professions. We have been very successful in securing research funding to boost our research personnel to over 160 postgraduate students and 80 research staff.

Our staff maintains a good record of awards and decorations. First and foremost is the Nobel Prize awarded to our Founding Chairman Professor Charles Kao in 2009. Our present Chairman Prof. Meng Max Qing Hu has been elected Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) for his notable achievements in Engineering. Professor Tsang Hon Ki received the Research Excellence Award in 2007. Professor Zhang Yuanting won the Hong Kong ICT Gold Award in 2008 and 2014 IEEE-SA Emerging Technology Award in 2014. Professor Wu Ke Li invented the first ever smallest Bluetooth module in 2005. Professor XU Jianbin received the Joint Research Fund for Overseas Chinese, Hong Kong and Macau Scholars funded by NSFC in 2009 and has been awarded a prestigious award of Cheung Kong Visiting Chair Professorship by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. Professor XU Jianbin and Professor Tsang Hon Ki as well as their research teams have been awarded the 2nd prize of the Natural Science Awards 2014 by the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. We have nine IEEE Fellows among us and our staff received Best Paper Awards in numerous occasions.
