Intelligent Information Engineering (Electrical)

Intelligent Information Engineering

The Intelligent Information Engineering specialisation focuses on teaching you the latest technologies in information engineering such as machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), video and speech recognition, multimedia and sensory signal processing.

The specialisation builds on foundations in mathematics, electrical engineering and computer and software engineering principles.

It will provide you with the deep knowledge and technical skills required to meet the surge of intelligence already being used in information engineering for a wide range of domains, such as smart cities, advanced manufacturing, automatic driving, 5G and Internet of Things, virtual reality and augmented reality.
