Our articulated MPhil-PhD programme provides students with an opportunity of being involved in in-depth studies and focused research in selected areas of electronic engineering. The programme is intended to foster high-quality and forward-looking research activities, so as to meet the society's demand for high-caliber engineers who are knowledgeable in the latest technologies. The Department of Electronic Engineering has 4 research groups which are Biomedical Engineering, Multimedia & Signal Processing, Integrated Circuits & Systems, and Solid State Electronics & Photonics covering the following 7 research areas.

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • DSP & Speech Technology
  • Image and Video Processing
  • Microwave & Wireless Communications
  • VLSI & ASIC
  • Photonics & Optical Communications
  • Solid-State Electronics

The MPhil study is research oriented. The normative duration is 2 years for full-time students and 3 years for part-time students with a bachelor degree. An MPhil student is required to complete 4 graduate-level courses. At least one faculty core course must be taken. Students have to obtain at least a B for the Faculty core course to satisfy the core course requirement. 
In addition, the student is required to carry out a research project of about 18 months in duration from which a satisfactory thesis is to be submitted. The student must also attend the oral examination to present his/her work to an appointed thesis committee. Students with good academic performance in their first year of study may be permitted to transfer to the PhD stream.
