Opportunities for practical experience

Practical experience is essential for engineering students to apply what they have learnt to contribute to society. Freshmen on the programme are exposed to the job market through the annual engineering job fair and full-year work study scheme are offered to penultimate students. Working in the real-life environment, students learn from their industry mentors and are acquainted with the work requirements and etiquette.

Selection Principle

Best 5

The programme calculates admission scores based on the total score of Best 5 HKDSE subjects.

Bonus points will be awarded to the 6th and 7th subjects.

More than 1 HKDSE Sitting

No penalty will be imposed

Note 1: Please note that admission to the University is on a competitive basis. Apart from public examination results, applicants' other learning experiences, prior education, and interview performance (if any) will also be considered.

Note 2: For score conversion of Category C: Other Language subjects, Grade A = 5 / Grade B = 4 / Grade C = 3 / Grade D = 2 / Grade E = 1

Note 3: The programme accepts specific Applied Learning (ApL) course(s) with "Attained with Distinction I/II" as an extra elective subject for awarding bonus points. Please refer to for details.

Note 4For 2021 entry, the best result in the same subject taken by a candidate in his/her three most recent attempts of the HKDSE examination will be used for calculation of the admission score.

Note 1: The Total Reference Score is the total score of the applicant calculated based on the programme selection principle (where level 5** = 7 / level 5* = 6 / level 5 = 5 / level 4 = 4 /  level 3 = 3 / level 2 = 2 / level 1 = 1 for Category A subjects. For Category C: Other Language subjects, Grade A = 5 / Grade B = 4 / Grade C = 3 / Grade D = 2 / Grade E = 1).

Note 2: In the admission process, some programmes may have additional requirements (such as specifying subject requirements, assigning heavier weighting to specific subjects, etc.) which are NOT reflected in the Total Reference Score above.

Note 3: Please note that as admission is NOT based on public examination results alone, and the overall scores of students admitted to each programme vary from year to year, the information provided is for reference only, and should not be used to predict the chance of admission to any programme in subsequent years.
