Explanatory Notes:
[a]Non-engineering students who wish to use other courses to substitute the required courses will have to seek approval from the Programme Director.
[b]ENGG2430 is for students majoring in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Energy and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical and Automation Engineering, Mathematics and Information Engineering. ENGG2450 is for students majoring in Biomedical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Financial Technology, Systems Engineering and Engineering Management. ENGG2470 is for students majoring in Information Engineering. Students of other Major programmes can choose either ENGG2430 or ENGG2450.
[c]ESTR courses are developed based on ordinary engineering courses with additional course materials and challenging assessments.  The courses are only applicable to students of the ELITE stream, who can choose a combination of the ESTR courses or the equivalent courses listed in the curriculum to fulfill the minor programme requirements.
