Organization Profile

Organisation profile

The Department, founded in 1988, has been dedicated and committed to university education, with equal emphasis on high quality research and teaching in computer science and information systems. Over the years, we have established research excellence with international reputation in four selected areas, namely Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML), Big Data Analytics and Management (BDAM), Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) and Distributed Systems and Networking (DSAN). Recently, we also commit to thematic application areas including “Health Informatics” and “Security and Privacy Aware Computing”. Like most research active universities, our faculty members publish in top tier journals, serve in editorial boards of major journals in their respective research fields, and obtain competitive research/technology grants from funding sources like the Hong Kong Research Grants Council, Innovation and Technology Commission of HKSAR, National Natural Science Foundation of China as well as local and overseas industries.

We offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate programmes, including B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science, B.Sc. (Hons) in Business Computing and Data Analytics (co-offered with School of Business), M.Sc. in Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence, M.Sc. in Information Technology Management, and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.) programmes. B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science programme has four concentrations of study, including i) “Computing and Software Technologies (CST)”, ii) “Information Systems and Analytics (ISA)”, “Artificial Intelligence” (AI) and iv) “Data and Media Communication (DMC)” (co-offered with Department of Journalism).  The Department is always striving for providing the best teaching and learning environment and experience, as well as equipping our students for their careers. Our graduates are well received by employers.
