Programme Director's Message

Welcome to the Master of Science in Information Engineering (MScIE) program, a unique program that offers you a great opportunity in learning and inventing the latest information technology.
 
The MScIE program at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was established back in 1997, with the main goal of nurturing engineering leaders and entrepreneurs with a deep understanding of communications and networking technologies. CUHK has been enjoying world-wide recognition of its high academic standard. During the 2013 Academic Ranking of World Universities published by Shanghai Jiaotong University, CUHK ranks No. 1 among all universities in mainland China and Hong Kong. The Faculty of Engineering of CUHK also ranks No. 1 among all Hong Kong engineering programs during the most recent Hong Kong Research Assessment Exercise. The Information Engineering department has a world-leading reputation in the area of communications and networking, with more than 1/3 of the faculty members as IEEE Fellows. Joining the MScIE program at CUHK is no doubt one of the best career choices that you can make. 
 
During the past 18 years, the program has evolved into a highly successful and competitive one under the great leadership of the past directors: Prof. Sean Tang, Prof. P.C. Wong, and Prof. Michael Chang. Whether you want to be inspired by the deep insights of the theory and understanding, or get acquainted with the state-of-the-art information technologies, or tap into the vast experiences on innovations and entrepreneurship from our business and engineering leaders, the MScIE program is ready to help you succeed. 
 
The MScIE program also offers opportunities for elite students to work closely with our faculty members on cutting edge research projects. Such opportunities are uncommon among similar programs, and our past MScIE students were able to benefit significantly from these research opportunities. Some of them published in top venues in the field, and a few of them got admitted into our PhD program due to the excellent research potential demonstrated in these projects. In MScIE, everything is possible. If you have a dream, we will help you achieve it.
 
Despite of the success of the MScIE program, we believe that the best program is the one that is adaptive to the students' needs. Hence we welcome any suggestions from you regarding how to improve the program and make the experiences more valuable. We wish you a great study experience in our program.
