Minor(s) or Second Major
Students may opt for a minor or double minor or a 2nd major in another discipline such as Finance, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, or Risk Management. The requirement for obtaining a minor is to complete 6 to 8 courses of the corresponding discipline; and for 2nd major, it’s 12 to 16 courses. However, students may not be allowed to take a 2nd major which requires more than 90 credits as he/she may not be able to complete the BEng(CompSc) programme in 4 years.
Students may opt for the double-degree programme by taking a BEng degree in the first four years of study with some required business courses, and a BBA degree in the fifth year which is run on a self-financed basis.
Students seeking admission to the BEng(CompSc) programme have to apply for entry under the Faculty of Engineering Common Admissions Scheme, which allows applicants to use one single code, JS6963, to apply for the 9 BEng programmes.
A quota of 140+ will be imposed for BEng programmes offered by each department of the Faculty of Engineering. Students can choose their desired study programme after their first year of study, on the basis of academic performance.
