Subject Syllabi

All subjects 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).

Prerequisite knowledge may be required for some subjects and students who cannot fulfill specified requirements may be precluded from subjects if their previous education was not in a relevant field.

Remark: Around 14 of the above subjects will be offered each year.
