About

The Electrical Engineering (Honours) from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University aims to produce engineers who are able to practise their profession in the broad area of electrical engineering which includes, but is not limited to, electrical power systems, energy conversion and utilisation, transportation systems, environmental protection, control, computer and fibre-optic applications.

A modern electrical engineer should possess a broad-based education and adequate specialist knowledge to undertake high-level work in design, planning, supervision and manufacturing. The programme thus emphasizes the mastery of fundamental principles and application of the latest engineering technology. Of equal importance is the training of leadership, entrepreneurship, and communication skills.

Career

Our graduates have numerous employment opportunities in engineering planning and design, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and servicing, engineering sales and research.

Graduates are able to develop rewarding careers in major utility and transportation companies such as CLP Power Hong Kong Limited, the Hongkong Electric Company and the Mass Transit Railway Corporation. They are also employed by engineering consultant firms, contractor companies, international engineering enterprises, electrical product manufacturers, and the Government of the HKSAR (e.g. the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department, the Water Supplies Department, the Drainage Department and others).
