Electrical Engineering

The Master of Science (Electrical Engineering) programme provides excellent opportunities for practising engineers to upgrade their knowledge and core capabilities in various exciting areas of engineering involving nano-science and nano-technology, biomedical systems, computer/ multimedia systems, digital and wireless communications, intelligent control systems, electronic and optoelectronic materials and devices, silicon integrated circuits, microwaves and electromagnetics, and electrical energy systems. It is structured around lectures (conducted in the evening) and end-of-semester examinations.

A candidate may read for MSc (Electrical Engineering) with or without a specialisation. The specialisations available are:

  • Automation and Control Engineering
  • Communications Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Power and Energy Systems

Whether or not a specialisation is taken, a candidate may offer projects in lieu of graduate modules. Two types of projects are available: (1) an independent study module (equivalent to one graduate module, or 4 MCs), or (2) a technical project (equivalent to two graduate modules or 8 MCs).
