Programme Characteristics

BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing and AI

Common first year. Students admitted to the Scheme do not need to decide on their final degree in the first year of study and can select their study paths in the second year.

Rich study pathways. The programme’s relatively few core credits give students the flexibility to take on a Minor study in other disciplines they are interested in, such as Business Administration, Financial Services, Social Science or other Engineering disciplines. They can also take additional Computing subjects to continue or specialise in one or more technical stream.

Applied and practical. The curriculum covers up-to-date practical skills in both content and teaching methodology, e.g., iPhone technology.
