The general aim of the programme is to prepare students for a career in computer science or information technology related areas. Students will be equipped to work in the Information & Communication Technology industry or to pursue postgraduate study. This programme stresses on innovations in computing technologies and information systems, and their applications to real-world problems. It consists of three concentrations of study:

  • Computing and Software Technologies (CST) Concentration
  • Information Systems and Analytics (ISA) Concentration
  • Data and Media Communication (DMC) Concentration

The Information Systems and Analytics (ISA) Concentration emphasizes on key concepts and best practices related to information systems design and integration, as well as information analytics for creative applications in organizations and enterprises.

 

Unique Features

  • The CST and ISA concentrations have been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers.
  • The DMC concentration is co-offered by the Department of Journalism under the School of Communication.
  • Students may choose double concentrations as follows: (i) CST+DMC; or (ii) ISA + DMC.

 

Student Learning Experiences

Students are able to gain IT work experience training through summer internship and 1-year placement opportunities. Also, the programme offers diversified overseas outreach opportunities for students such as study tours, overseas internship, overseas summer research programme and overseas study exchange.

 

Remarks

Students may have the option of taking an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a bachelor's degree in that Major plus a Diploma in Education.

We adopt a holistic approach in selecting applicants on individual merits. Applicants are required to meet the University entrance requirements, English Language requirements and Programme entrance requirements (if any).
