are designed for students with appropriate
working experience and have a high standard in
terms of relevance to modern engineering
practice, up-to-date technical content and
intellectual demand. The unit size of each
subject, which is the building block of the
Scheme, is defined in terms of student study
time. The total effort required of a student on
a 3-credit subject is equivalent to 4 weeks of
full-time study, i.e. a total of about 105 hours
(including class-contact time).
Remark: Around 14 of the above subjects will be offered each year.
