It offers an undergraduate programme with equal emphasis on internal and telecommunica- tions systems. Specifically, students will learn the fundamental theory of information; networking architecture and protocol; the technologies that enable efficient information storage, exchange, and transmission; and the processing of information in multimedia applications. Teachers are renowned researchers in the field, many with a strong industrial background. Its BEng programme has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers. Tel.: 2609 8313 Fax.: 2603 5505 E-mail: Established in 1991, the department is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. In its undergraduate programme in systems engineering and engineering management leading to the BEng degree, there are four streams of specialization: e-commerce systems, information systems, logistics and supply chain management, and financial engineering. Underlying all streams is the common theme of developing and applying engineering methodologies and information technologies to decision making and problem solving in complex systems in business, industry, and the public sector. At the graduate level, the department offers programmes leading to the degrees of MSc, MPhil, and PhD in systems engineering and engineering management. The department is also actively engaged in research, in areas of decision methodology and operations research, E-commerce technologies, information systems, engineering management, and financial engineering.
