School of Science and Technology Electronic and Computer Engineering   BEng Hons in Electronic and Computer Engineering Y1 (9720)  

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Electronic and Computer Engineering (BENGHECEJ1) (JUPAS Code: 9720)

Bachelor of Engineering

Face to Face Mode Full-time Four Years

This four-year honours degree programme aims to equip students with the academic knowledge necessary for a professional engineer in the fields of electronic engineering and computer engineering. It provides a challenging programme for students who aspire to become leaders in the technological world, and who wish to contribute to the development of electronic, computer and communication systems in the ever-changing knowledge-based economy.

The Core courses in the first two years cover a wide variety of subjects in electronic engineering and computer engineering. In Year 3 and 4, students will select areas of specialization based on their own personal and career interests. The specialization courses cover a wide range of subjects, including mobile and wireless network, digital signal processing, biomedical engineering technologies, digital multimedia and software engineering. Apart from these technical subjects, students will also study several peripheral subjects essential to their future employment as professional engineers.

Hugo Leung
Software and Hardware Engineer
Innovation Team Company Limited

Hugo Leung Wai-yin, who graduated from his four-year programme in 2015, won the Best Paper Award for his ‘intelligent pill-dispenser’ design at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering’s International Conference on Consumer Electronics – China 2015.

The pill-dispenser alerts patients via sound and LED flashes to pre-set dosage and time intervals. Unlike units currently on the market, Hugo’s design connects to any mobile phone globally. In explaining how it works, he said: ‘There are three layers in the portable pillbox. The lowest level is a controller with various devices which can be connected to mobile phones in remote locations. Patients are alerted by a sound alarm and flashes. Should they fail to follow their prescribed regime, data can be sent via SMS to relatives and friends for follow up.’ The pill-dispenser has four medicine slots, plus a back-up with a LED alert, topped by a 500ml water bottle. It took Hugo three months of research and coding to complete his design, but he feels it was worth all his time and effort.

Hugo’s public examination results were disappointing and he was at a loss about his future before enrolling at the OUHK, which he now realizes was a major turning point in his life. He is grateful for the OUHK’s learning environment, its industry links and the positive guidance and encouragement from his teachers. The University is now exploring the commercial potential of his design with a pharmaceutical company. He hopes that this will benefit the elderly and chronically ill, as well as the society at large.

Soon after completing his studies, Hugo joined an automation technology company as an assistant engineer. He is responsible for the design and development of automation devices. The target is to minimize human labor and increase the quality of products. He is developing products which are used in various sections, including healthcare, manufacturing and consumer electronics.
