Electronic Information Engineering
Nowadays, computers, information and communication technologies have become the main driving force for China’s economic development. As a result, new Internet-related products and services (online banking, online transactions, etc.) are booming. As one of the four central cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Shenzhen is one of the most dynamic bases for China’s communications, electronic information and computer industries. The city is in urgent needs of computer and electronic information engineering technical talents with an international perspective to promote the development of a new generation of information technology to support the future development of the city.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) is committed to establishing a world-class education and scientific research center and is determined to carry out international frontier research in the fields of information, big data, new energy, international finance and logistics. In order to achieve this goal, we will recruit first-class scholars globally, develop cross-disciplinary courses and establish advanced teaching and research facilities. Electronic Information Engineering is a cutting-edge program that teaches the basic knowledge and skills of electronic information and computer engineering. Students will also have many opportunities to communicate and learn with world-renowned professors and leading industry practitioners inside and outside the classroom.
1. Training Objectives
To cultivate innovative and entrepreneurial talents with international vision, the EIE program is designed to teach its students modern electronic technology, the principles and practice of computer engineering, information transmission and storage, signal processing and analysis, prototype development and technology transfer to commercial products. The well-rounded education will enable graduates of this major to further their graduate studies at domestic and foreign graduate schools, as well as practice their profession in the industry such as computers, electronics, information, finance, manufacturing and government agency management.
2. Stream Specialty
School-packaged courses: Comprehensive basic science and engineering subjects training, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Statistics.
Students can choose to study in the direction of Electronic Engineering (EE) or Computer Engineering (CE) according to their own interests. EIE4900 (Final Year Project) is added to the major required courses to help students gain practical experience and prepare them for their future career development.
A. Computer Engineering
Computer Engineering focuses on the practice and application of computer systems. Its main areas cover cloud computing, artificial intelligence, robotics, computer networks, image processing, computer-aided design, computer system security, embedded computer systems, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Major required courses include Programming Paradigms (C++), Data Structures, Computer Structures, Operating Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Decentralized and Parallel Processing, Digital Logic and System Design Experiments, Microprocessor and Computer System Design Experiments, and Final Year Project.
B. Electrical Engineering
Major required courses for Electrical Engineering stream mainly include Circuit Theory and Experiment, Digital Logic and System and Experiment, Signal and System, Computer Structure, Data Structure, Microcomputer System and Experiment, and Final Year Project. Through extensive hands-on training, students can develop in various fields in the future including wireless communications, integrated circuits, signal processing and robotics and so on.
EIE major program will take advantages of the local industry in the Internet, Communications and other Electronic information areas to provide students with ample opportunities to interact with the local industry, which helps our students to better understand the industry trends and be equipped with entrepreneurship ability. Electronic Information Engineering graduates will acquire professional knowledge and skills that will enable their long-term development in the broad field of Electronic Information.
