Admission of STEM Talents
Starting from 2019 entry, the Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Science will select and admit students with broad and in-depth exposure and achievements in STEM under STEM Talent Scheme.
1) Basic Requirements
Achieved in HKDSE at least 3 Stars (e.g. Level 5*5*5* or 5**5*3 or 5**5**5**) in 3 STEM elective subjects
2) STEM Elective Subjects
Biology / Chemistry / Physics / M1 or M2 / Combined Science or Integrated Science / Information and Communication Technology / Design and Applied Technology
3) Admission Arrangements
Applicants who have fulfilled the basic requirements and placed programme(s) of the Faculty of Engineering as one of their top JUPAS choices would be reviewed under a dedicated selection panel for special consideration.
Such special consideration would be extended to JUPAS applicants who fail to fulfil the University minimum entrance requirements in the 4 core subjects. Selection interview may be granted and admission results would be announced via JUPAS.
This scheme may also cover other STEM achievements and qualifications such as well-established/international awards and other non-JUPAS qualifications on a case-by-case basis.
