BEng in Electronic Engineering (Research Option)


Why Research Option?

The Research Option is designed for students interested in experiencing research at the undergraduate level. This option provides enhanced analytical and intellectual training through advanced courses. Students will also gain research experience through working on exciting projects under the supervision of our ECE professors in the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and Final Year Thesis (FYT). This option offers excellent training and preparation for students to pursue MPhil or PhD degrees or careers in research and development after graduation.
