ECE Advisory Board

Launched in 2012, the Advisory Board (AB) serves as a bridge between the ECE Department and its key industry affiliates to facilitate regular communications and interaction through annual events to elevate the relevance of our curriculum and research programs to the industry. 

Specifically, the objectives of the AB include:

  • Seeking professional advice and feedback from the industry on our curriculum and how we could better prepare our students for their career.
  • Reviewing the UG and PG curriculum and courses.
  • Examining new educational ideas and new curriculum developments.
  • Promoting closer academic / industry collaboration in UG and PG education through various channels such as internships, final year   project / thesis co-supervision and consultancy.
  • Promoting collaborative research activities between the department and industry.
  • Jointly exploring call for proposals and funding opportunities.
  • Serving as the judge on the ECE Final Year Project Industry Day.

Companies in both technical and non-technical fields and academics are invited to join the AB, so we can have a comprehensive understanding of the changing needs of different industry sectors related to ECE. Through the AB, we aim to build stronger, long-term relationships with the industry and gain valuable insights into the requirements of the employers and our society. Board members are required to attend an annual meeting in early May every year.
