Engineering + Business Administration Double Degree Programme


Have you ever considered enhancing your competitive edge by studying for a double degree? The Faculty of Engineering, in collaboration with the Faculty of Business Administration here at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, is offering double degree programmes in Engineering and Business Administration starting from the 2007 entry. Double degree programmes offer you:

  • two bachelor degrees in 4 years (for 3-year curriculum) and 5 years (for new 4-year curriculum).
  • inter-disciplinary professional knowledge in both Engineering and Business Administration which enhances your competitive edge in future career development or pursuit of higher degrees.
  • a wider career choice after graduation.

The Programme Structure

Entrants of this double degree programme would pursue their first bachelor degree at the Faculty of Engineering with a selected major (Biomedical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering,  Energy Engineering, Information Engineering, Mechanical and Automation Engineering, and Systems Engineering & Engineering Management), and upon completion of the first degree, pursue the second bachelor degree at the Faculty of Business Administration. Students would be awarded a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) (or a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) if majoring in Computer Science), and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) majoring in Integrated Business Administration (IBBA) upon completion of studies.

Special features of the Programme include:

  • The double degrees in Engineering and Business Administration is designed as a 4 + 1 programme under the new 4-year curriculum (3 + 1 programme for the old 3-year curriculum). The second degree programme would normally last for one year and is run on a self-financing basis where the current annual tuition fee is $100,000 starting from 2010 entry (will be adjusted to $120,000 starting from 2013 entry).
  • Students will complete the first degree before beginning the second degree. The second degree is optional and students might choose to opt out of the programme if they want to.
  • Students on this double degree programme will need to take some Business Administration courses in the first three years  (for 3-year curriculum) or four years (for 4-year curriculum) of study. If they eventually do not join the second degree in Business Administration, they will be awarded a Minor in Business Administration in recognition of the credits units earned from these courses if they fulfill relevant academic requirements of the IBBA Minor programme.


Admission Requirements

There is no quota for the double degree programmes. Students who have satisfied all the following admission requirements will be eligible to join:

  • Have met the admission requirements of the selected Engineering programme.
  • Have met the admission requirements of the IBBA Programme.
  • Have achieved admission scores not lower than the lowest admission score of the IBBA Programme in the previous year.
    (The actual grades achieved by the students in the 75th, 50th, and 25th percentile admitted to the IBBA Programme  in the last years could be found here.)

* Non-jupas, mainland and international students are also welcome to apply for this double degree programme. For mainland students, please visit to the following page for details.

Students pursuing this ERG-BBA track will basically pursue their selected Engineering programme courses plus some BA courses during the study period of the first degree in Engineering. Students will be guaranteed admission into the second degree programme in Integrated Business Administration in the fourth year (for 3-year curriculum) or firth year (for 4-year curriculum) when they:
  • have fulfilled all graduation requirements of the first degree in Engineering;
  • have achieved a Major GPA of at least 3.0 upon completion of study of the first degree programme; and
  • have taken at least 30 units of courses offered by the Faculty of Business Administration while studying for the first degree in Engineering and have achieved an average GPA of at least 3.0 in these courses.

Admission of the students who do not satisfy the above requirements to the second degree IBBA programme is subject to approval by the IBBA Programme.
