Study Scheme (2-Year Curriculum)
Applicable to students admitted in 2016-2017
(For students in other entry year, please click here.)
Major Programme Requirement (for Associate Degree or Higher Diploma holders admitted to senior-year places)Students are required to complete a minimum of 51 units of courses as follows:
|2.||Foundation Mathematics Courses:|
|4.||Choose any ONE from the following seven options:|
|Total: 51 units|
In addition to fulfilling the above Major Programme Requirement, students may also challenge themselves by taking the following stream offered by the Faculty:
Engineering Leadership, Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship (ELITE) Stream[k]
Elective Courses (15 units[i]):
- 12 units of ESTR courses of which at most 6 units of courses at 1000 or 2000 level and at least 6 units of courses at 3000 or 4000 level
- 3 units of BMEG/CENG/CSCI/ELEG/ENGG/IERG/MAEG/SEEM courses at 5000 level
BMEG/CENG/CSCI/ELEG/ENER/ENGG/ESTR/IERG/MAEG/SEEM courses at 2000 and above level will be included in the calculation of Major GPA for honours classification, excluding courses in Faculty Package, Foundation Science courses and Foundation Mathematics courses.
Students from SYSU 2+2 programme are encouraged to exempt the Foundation Mathematics Courses. Students can choose any course at 3000 or above level within the Faculty of Engineering for substitution.
ENGG2440/ESTR2004 is equivalent to CSCI2110.
Students who have declared to specialize in the ELITE Stream will be required to complete 6 units of ESTR4998 and 4999 to substitute for CSCI4998 and 4999.
Details of the entrance and coursework requirements, and declaration procedures for the ELITE Stream can be found at the ELITE website (www.erg.cuhk.edu.hk/elite).
Non-ELITE Engineering students may be allowed to take ESTR courses. Students are required to seek approval from their respective Major Programmes for using ESTR courses taken to fulfill the Major Programme Requirement. Details are available at the ELITE website.
Students can use up to 9 units of courses taken to fulfill the requirements of items 1 to 4 above (excluding item 3(b) Research Component Courses) to fulfill the elective requirements of the ELITE Stream. A full list of ESTR courses is available at the ELITE website.
Students can use BMEG/CENG/CSCI/ELEG/ENGG/IERG/MAEG/SEEM courses at 5000 level to substitute for ESTR courses at 3000 or 4000 level, subject to the approval of the Stream Director and the Associate Dean (Education).
The requirement of at least 3 units of Engineering courses at 5000 level is a requirement for the ELITE Stream only. It should not be interpreted as a requirement of the Major Programme.
