The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computer Science and Technology is a four-year full-time degree programme, with considerable departure from traditional single discipline programmes. In addition to the courses of the main discipline, students are required to take supporting, interdisciplinary, general education courses and the whole person education experiential learning modules of their own choice. In the final year of study, students are required to undertake individual research projects, in which they can gain in-depth knowledge, develop basic research techniques, and experience during the course of thesis preparation.

Students are expected to complete 132 units within the curriculum structure below:

Course CategoryUnits
Major Required Courses (专业必修课) 42
Major Elective Courses (专业选修课) 18
General Education Core Courses (通识教育核心课) 32

* Students who continue with the final year project in the second semester of Year 4 should register Final Year Project II(COMP) as a major elective during the online course selection (or course add/drop) period as informed by the Academic Registry.

The availability of major elective courses each semester is subject to minor changes and adjustments depending on staff availability.

3) General Education Programme

All students should complete 48 units of General Education (GE) courses to fulfil the graduation requirements. The GE Programme consists of (a) 32 units of GE Core (GEC) courses, (b) 12 units of GE Distribution (GED) courses, and (c) 4 units of Whole Person Education Experiential Learning Modules(WPEX). Please see Appendix I for detailed information about the GE Programme.


4) Free Elective Courses

The 24 units of Free Electives could be used by students to (a) spend a semester abroad; (b) take a minor; or (c) take more courses offered by the teaching units.
