The top 40% of students in the department will be allocated to their first choice major according to the following criteria:
* Credits earned from “EL0200A/B English for Academic Purposes” and “CHIN1001 University Chinese I” taken in Semesters A and B 2015/16 will be counted towards the 30 credit unit requirement. However, grades obtained from the above two courses will not be included in the GPA calculation.
For the remaining 60% of students, the major allocation will be based on their choice of priority, availability of places and the following selection criteria of individual majors:
BEng Mechanical Engineering (M.E.) and
BEng Nuclear and Risk Engineering (NRE)
BEng Biomedical Engineering (BME)
# In case that a student has taken less than 24 credit units, the total points of all courses will be divided by 24 credit units in the calculation of the weighted GPA. If a student has taken more than 24 credit units, all course grades will be included in the calculation of the weighted GPA.
