Welcome to School of Electrical & Information Engineering Wiki

A Wiki enables documents to be authored collectively in a simple markup language using a web browser. “Wiki wiki” means “super fast” in the Hawaiian language, and it is the speed of creating and updating pages that is one of the defining aspects of wiki technology.

EIE Wiki is powered by DokuWiki - a standards-compliant, simple-to-use wiki which allows multiple users to create, modify and organize web page content in a collaborative manner.

“Unlimited page revisions allows restoration to any earlier page version, and with data stored in plain text files, no database is required. In other words; DokuWiki is a wiki written in PHP and requires no database. See the features section for a full description of what DokuWiki has to offer.
