Undergraduate plus Taught Postgraduate Degree Programmes

As part of the CityU Talents Programme to attract high caliber students and inspire existing Year 1 students to raise their academic performance, the College of Engineering (CENG) introduced “Undergraduate plus Taught Postgraduate Degree Programmes”, where students will be awarded a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in a shorter time than the normal study period.

What is a “Undergraduate plus Taught Postgraduate Degree Programme”?

Normally, a Bachelor’s degree at CityU requires students to complete 120 credit units in 4 years, and a Master’s degree requires full-time students to complete 30 credit units in 1 year. A “Undergraduate plus Taught Postgraduate Degree Programme” will allow students of exceptional merit to complete two degrees in a shorter time, typically 3 years in the undergraduate programme and 1 year in the taught postgraduate programme (or 3.5 plus 0.5 years).

The participating programmes are listed as follows:

Eligibility Criteria/Entrance Requirements
 

New students JUPAS: HKDSE score >= 28
Non-JUPAS: IB >= 38
Mainland: follow entrant scholarship requirements
Other qualifications recognized by CityU will also be considered
Existing Year 1 students Top 10% of Year 1 students of the College of Engineering; and completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A & B, including the number of credit units for courses specified by the College/home academic unit (BME, MNE, MSE & SEEM)

OR

CGPA >= 3.6 after 2 semesters or top 10% of Year 1 students of the College of Engineering, whichever is higher; and completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A & B, including the number of credit units for courses specified by the College/home academic unit (EE)


To continue in the Programme, students are required to achieve a CGPA of 3.40 or above by the end of Semester B each year. Students who fail the CGPA requirement can continue to complete the regular BEng programme they enrolled in until graduation. Students can also withdraw from the Programme at their discretion at any point and continue to complete the regular BEng programme.
