Information for new students:
The Electronics degree programmes are among the earliest study programmes offered by The Open University of Hong Kong.

Since most of our students study on a part-time basis, it will take a longer period of time to complete the degree programme compared to universities operating in the full time mode.  However, some students were able to complete the B.Sc.(Hons) degree in as little as 4.5 years.

Students with prior tertiary education experience will be given credit transfer.  For example, if you are Higher Diploma, Higher Certificate graduates of IVE (or formerly VTC) in Electronic Engineering and related disciplines, you will normally be given substantial credit exemption, up to two-thirds of the programme requirement.

If you are interested in any of the Electronics programmes, please plan your studies by consulting the prospectus and the courses supplement.  If in doubt please contact Paul Kwok (phone 2768 6804).

What do we study in OUHK's Electronics programmes?
We reckon that Electronics technology progresses very rapidly.  If our courses concentrate purely on the state-of-the-art systems and devices, your knowledge will outdate very quickly and you may not have the necessary background to catch up with technology development.  What is needed is a solid foundation upon which Electronics technology is built.

Our programme is broad based, meaning that we provide you with foundation in Mathematics and Physics.  After studying the foundation, you can then take the first course in Electronics: T222 Electronics Principles and Digital Design and T225 Analogue Circuits which forms the basis for the higher level electronics courses.  These higher level courses include Information Theory and Digital Communications, Inside Electronic Devices and Mechatronics.

In addition to the above core courses, you will also select an option from a range of courses in Computing, Communications Technology, Business and Design.

There are also the usual Open University free choice courses where you can choose from any course offered by the University.  For example, you can take a course in Economics or in Arts.  Of course, for those who wish to specialize in Electronics, you can also use your free choice credits on courses such as Microprocessor-based Computers and Artificial Intelligence for Technology.

For Honours students, you will take the Electronics Project course as the last course before graduation.  You will have a choice of a research type project, or building a piece of hardware, or writing a piece of software or combination of everything.

Example of a study plan:
The study plan for every student will be different, according to the background, needs, interest, and amount of spare time available for study.  You study at your own pace: this is the beauty of the flexibility of our system.  Of course, some of you may have difficulty understanding our system.  So we have prepared some examples of a study plan.
