Aims and Objectives

To train engineers who are capable of demonstrating creative skills in the application of advanced knowledge in electrical engineering, and to develop innovative thinking while solving real industrial problems.
To enhance the professional competence of the students who are already, or have the potential to rise to senior management or principal research/development positions.

Mode and Duration

This is a credit based part-time programme. The minimum duration is three years and the maximum duration is eight years. It is expected that most students can complete in five years.
