Fast Track Electronics Engineering Technology Co-op - Tecnología de Ingeniería Electrónica
The HKUST MSc Program in Electronic Engineering brings students up to date in the range of technologies that are increasing the speed at which we can acquire, interpret, and act upon information. Students will master: advances in networking, communication, photonics and display technologies, which improve our access to information; advances in signal processing and pattern recognition, which enable computers to analyze this information automatically; advances in automation and control, which enable rapid reconfiguration of production lines in response to market changes; and the advances in chip design and computer architecture that power these technologies.
This program is deliberately broad based to provide a balanced view of the state of the art for maximum flexibility. Students may tailor their program to their unique interests.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree in Electrical / Electronic / Computer Engineering or a related field, or an equivalent qualification from a recognized university or tertiary institution.
The full-time program is intended for students who wish to accelerate the completion of their degree. Fresh graduates who have good academic record are also our targets.
Indeed, technology is advancing across a broad front of areas at such a rapid pace that even recent degree holders find their knowledge base fast becoming obsolete. The Master of Science (MSc) program in Electronic Engineering brings students up-to-date in state-of-the-art technologies which are changing the way we work and interact in an increasingly interconnected world.
The program offers postgraduate courses in a broad range of subjects in Electronic Engineering. The program is deliberately broad based to provide a balanced view of the state-of-the-art for maximum flexibility. Students may tailor their program to their unique interests.
The program requires students to take a total of 24 credits of course work, which is equivalent to eight 3-credit courses. Normally, full-time students may take four 3-credit courses every term.
Students typically fulfill the 24 credit requirement by taking eight courses of 3 credits each:
