Introduction

Founded in 1963, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is a forward-looking comprehensive research university. As a top university in Hong Kong and Asia, CUHK aims to nurture students with both specialized knowledge and wisdom for life.

The Department of Information Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering of CUHK was founded in 1989 by Prof. Charles Kao, the father of optical fiber communications. Since its establishment, the department has been pioneering the development of information technology in Hong Kong and the world, including its introduction of internet, electronic newspaper industry and school network in Hong Kong. The Department has launched Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Information Engineering and co-organized Hong Kong's first Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Mathematics and Information Engineering with the Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Science of CUHK, teaching the latest technology and knowledge theories, and cultivating professional engineers and researchers for the information world of today and the future.

In the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0, the application of the Internet of Things can be seen everywhere, from smart watches to smart homes. What is the operation behind it? The different technical fields in telecommunications (wireless communication and optical fiber communication), the Internet, information processing, big data analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and network security are all areas of information engineering. Our graduates of Information Engineering have a broad career prospects. In addition to engaging in information technology-related software development, technical consulting, telecommunications, network and information system management, they can also set foot in the data processing and analysis in the finance, translation and psychology sectors. Mathematics and Information Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme that the graduates are well trained in mathematics and engineering. Many of them go to world-renowned universities to further their studies and become researchers.
