How to Apply

Manchester Metropolitan University’s BEng and MEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering programmes will provide you with the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in electrical and electronic engineering.

This programme aims to prepare young graduates to work as electrical engineers in the operation and maintenance of systems and equipments for industrial and everyday purposes, particularly in the fields of power generation and distribution, electrical machines, power electronics and energy quality, as well as renewable sources.

The entire MEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering consists of 480 credits in the Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK.  It is offered as a part-time top-up programme in Hong Kong. 

Students holding a Higher Diploma in Engineering awarded within the HKU System through HKUSPACE will be exempted 150 credits.  They are required to complete 11 modules (a total of 330 credits) in order to obtain the MEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering *.  They may apply to exit the programme after completion of 7 modules (a total of 210 credits) for obtaining the BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering *.

* Awarding body: Manchester Metropolitan University

The programme encompasses 13 modules, which include 9 compulsory modules and 4 elective modules. Students have to complete all the 9 compulsory modules and 2 elective modules to fulfill the requirement of the MEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree.

The programme will be delivered via face-to-face lectures#. Tutorials and/or practical sessions will be provided in each module. Through individual and team-based projects that closely resemble the work of practicing engineers, students will exercise their design, teamwork, leadership, management and communication skills, and will have their technical knowledge and skills deepened. In the 2nd year of study, the students will undertake a major research or design project individually. And in the last year, a group design project will provide students further training on research skills and teamwork spirit.

# Given the COVID-19 situation might still be fluid, please note that the School may substitute face-to-face classes with online teaching if necessary.


With project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, you’ll develop the transferable skills and awareness so highly prized by industry. You’ll continue to learn through project-based activity, alongside in-depth study of specialist technical topics, such as electrical energy systems, control engineering and electronic systems design.

For your all-important final-year project, you’ll research, design, plan and manage a specialist technology solution to a current engineering problem. And, to prepare you for the kinds of challenge you’ll face in the world of work, you’ll get a chance to present and justify your ideas to academic and industry specialists.


Graduates of our Electrical and Electronic Engineering courses go on to a range of roles – from manufacturing, aircraft design and manufacture, and automotive and railway engineering, to engineering consultancies and the power and nuclear fuel industries.

Employers outside of engineering sectors also recognise the skills and problem-solving capacity of our engineering graduates, and there may be opportunities in sales, commissioning, finance, teaching and management, as well as roles managing technology to support a range of organisations.
