Dissertation Information

Each student is required to complete

  1. a dissertation under the supervision of an appropriate teacher(s) in this department
  2. attend and satisfactorily complete a capstone workshop in his/her respective stream/programme.


The overall performance of capstone will be solely determined by the dissertation.
Students failing in fulfilling the requirement (including attendance) of the workshop will need to be re-assessed or re-take the workshop.

The details of the workshops are as follows
MSc(Eng) in EEE (Power Engineering Stream) (choose one of the following)

  • Apps Programming

MSc(Eng) in EnergyE

  • Simulation Techniques for Renewable Energy Systems


The workshops will normally be held in Part I Lab (LG-205, Chow Yei Ching Building) in the first 6 weeks of the first and second semesters (depending on the total number of students enrolled). In general, full-time students are given preference to take the workshop in the first semester while part-time students are given preference to take the workshop in the second semester.
