Notes:

  1. There are five Level-1 courses namely EE1000 Program Introduction, EE1001 Foundations of Digital Techniques, EE1002 Principles of Electrical Engineering, EE1004 Foundations of Information Systems and Data Analysis, and GE1354 Introduction to Electronic Design, in major requirement.

  2. Normative 4-year degree students entering without Level 4 in HKDSE English Language are required to take LC0200A English for Academic Purposes 1 and LC0200B English for Academic Purposes 2 (EAP) of 6 credit units before progressing to GE1401 University English and GE2410 English for Engineering. Early exit arrangement is available that students achieving a grade B or above in their overall course results for LC0200A will be permitted to exit at this point and progress to the GE English courses.

    The credits earned from the EAP course(s) will not be counted towards the minimum credit units required for graduation nor be calculated in students’ CGPA. Students who are not admitted through JUPAS are invited upon enrolment to take the English Placement Test or to provide proof of alternative qualifications to be exempted from the ELC course (http://www.cityu.edu.hk/elc/courses_exemption.html).

  3. Students are required to take a minimum of 3 CUs from each of the following specified areas – 1/ Arts and Humanities, 2/ Study of Societies, Social and Business Organizations, and 3/ Science and Technology.

  4. College-specified courses for normative 4-year degree:

    Calculus and Basic Linear Algebra I/
    Enhanced Calculus and Linear Algebra I
    3 credit units
    MA1201*/
    MA1301
    Calculus and Basic Linear Algebra II/
    Enhanced Calculus and Linear Algebra II
    3 credit units
    EE2066 Engineers in Society 3 credit units
    Students are highly encouraged to take MA1200 and MA1201 in which the engineering mathematical contents already fit the needs of the following studies in their majors.

  5. Students are required to take two courses for their College Requirements (6 credit units). Courses include PHY1202 General Physics II, and CS1302 Introduction to Computer Programming.

  6. Students may choose to earn credits from minor and free electives which will be counted in addition to the minimum credit units for graduation, unless course exemption has been granted to any course(s) in the curriculum requirement.
