Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.)
Electronics majoring in Robotics & Automation

(R2/523/6/0035) 11/21 (MQA/FA4749)

The Faculty of Engineering and Technology offers an undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics) degree majoring in robotics and Automation. For students planning on professional careers in the fields of industry automation, this four-year engineering programme provides complete undergraduate training in robotics and automation fields such as advanced robotics, machine vision, applied dynamics, knowledge system and neural computing, digital control system, microprocessor system, automation and power technology.

In addition, the students are also exposed to basic engineering training in circuit and signal analysis, field theory, electronics, control theory, power systems, machines, communications and engineering mathematics. To better prepare the students for the engineering professional career, courses in basic management, economics, accounting and law are also included. This programme also provides students with industrial experience and research training by requiring students to complete industrial training and graduation projects.
