Admissions (for HKDSE students)


(JUPAS Code: JS1204)

Major Structure

This major has a four-year structure. Following a first year in which students acquire general education as well as fundamental computer science knowledge, students will focus on the core courses in computer science during an intensive second year of studies which include a summer term. With satisfactory attainment, students will join the Information Technology Professional Placement to work in companies joining our placement programme for a year in related fields to gain real work experience. During the placement year, students will take one day off weekly from their work to complete a number of elective courses. In their final year of study, among other electives, students take up a year-long project in which they work independently under the supervision of a faculty member.
