  1. Students whose entry qualification in HKDSE English Language is below Level 4 are required to take EL0200A & EL0200B English for Academic Purposes 1 & 2 (EAP) before progressing to GE English courses. Please see more details by referring to the Section ‘Curriculum Structure of 4-year Degree’ of this handbook.

  2. The offering of CS1302 is subject to sufficient student enrolments.

  3. There are three science courses namely PHY1201 General Physics I, BCH1100 Chemistry and BCH1200 Discovery in Biology under the College Requirements. Students are required to choose two out of three. It is advisable for all EE students to take PHY1201, while students interested in Electronic and Communication Engineering major are advised to take BCH1100 for the other course. Pre-registration on PHY1201 and BCH1100 have been done for all EE students. Students intending to change their course choice should do it during the add/drop period on web..

Recommended Study Plan for First-year Students
  1. All unnecessary changes to pre-arranged timetable should be avoided. Students wishing to drop/change a pre-assigned course should do it online or using the paper form during add/drop period. Places given up are not guaranteed if they are required to be retrieved.

  2. In cases that students want to register on BCH1200 Discovery in Biology to fulfil the College Requirement, they should do it through web during the add/drop period and register the session to Semester A. De-registration of the replaced course should only be done after BCH1200 is successfully added. Students are advised to keep the semester credit load to 15 credit units as suggested..

  3. Students are advised to refer to their own timetable pre-arranged according to the recommended study plan below and avoid possible time conflict when considering the GE course to be added during the course add/drop period.
