11. For the calculation of scores for classification purposes in the degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours in Electronics, the University has deemed that “Group (a)” shall consist of course ELEC S402 The Project Course plus the best 20 credits in courses at Higher level listed in Table 1, and that “Group (b)” shall consist of the best 40 credits in courses at Higher or Middle level listed in Table 1, where such credits are not taken into account in “Group (a)”. Further, that “X” shall equal two, that is “Group (a)” shall be weighted at twice the value of “Group (b)”.

Notes:

  1. Courses form excluded combinations with other courses. Only one of the courses of the excluded combinations can count towards an OUHK award. Students should refer to the list of excluded combinations for details.
     
  2. Students who are weak in mathematics are strongly advised to take either MATH S111/MATH S121 or MATH S112/MATH S122 in courses labelled F.
     
  3. Students in BSc with Honours programme intending to apply for membership of professional engineering societies are advised to take BUS B100/BUS B103 and ENGG S228.
     
  4. Course ELEC S402 will be compulsorily included in “Group(a)” for Honours Classification purposes.
     
  5. Courses no longer available.
     
  6. Successful completion of ELEC S202 is considered as completion of ELEC S222 and ELEC S225.
