Dear Engineering Students,
Please pay close attention to the important information below on the module registration exercise for Semester II, AY2012/2013 which will be carried out using the Centralised Online Registration System or CORS. Please visit this site for more information about CORS (also see “how to use CORS”).
1. Year 1 Modules
The Semester II schedule is now available for viewing here. First-year students and Polytechnic direct entry students who are required to take MA1506, MA1505 (for Polytechnic direct entry students only), EG1108, EG1109, MLE1101, CS1010E, PC1431 and/or PC1432 will be pre-allocated these modules (including lecture, tutorial and/or lab sessions) following the recommended schedules except for ES1102 & ES1531 (formerly EG1413) for which students have to BID via CORS from Round 1A onwards.
Senior students who have not taken or need to re-take Year 1 common modules are required to BID for the modules via CORS from Round 1A onwards.
For Year 1 Common Engineering students, please click here for some important information on your curriculum.
2. ES1000 Basic English & ES1102 English for Academic Purposes
First year & senior students who are required to read ES1102/ES1000 may bid for their respective modules from Round 1A onwards.
3. ES1531 Critical Thinking & Writing (CTW) (ES1531 is the new module code for EG1413.)
First-year and senior students are required to BID for ES1531 sectional groups via CORS during the bidding exercise from Round 1A onwards. Please note that ES1531 is a programme requirement module and students are strongly advised to read this module in the first-year of study as it is a pre-requisite for EG2401 and ES2331 (ES2331 is a new faculty requirement for Cohort AY12/13). Good performance in this module is an indicator of ability of students to communicate well and this would be an important factor in the selection of students for special programmes including the Student Exchange Programme.
For students residing at University Town, the IEM module can be taken in lieu of ES1531 (must be on a graded basis). Please see here for more information on IEM modules.
4. ES2331 Communicating Engineering (new faculty requirement for Cohort AY2012/13)
All students admitted in AY2012/13 are required to read ES2331 Communicating Engineering. This compulsory module must be read on a graded basis either as a Breadth (module type code U9) OR as Unrestricted Elective (module type code 27). ES1531 is a pre-requisite of ES2331.
First-year students are required to BID for ES2331 sectional groups via CORS during the bidding exercise from Round 1A onwards.
ES1531 & ES2331 are NOT required for Computer Engineering (CEG) students and Engineering students who complete the requirements of the University Scholars Program (USP) and the University Town (UTown) Residential Program.
Please visit here for more information on ES2331.
5. EG2401 Engineering Professionalism
EG2401 will be open for bidding via CORS from Round 1A onwards for all Year 4 graduating students and all students for whom EG2401 is scheduled to be taken in Semester II (please refer to your recommended schedule). Students who have successfully secured the module need to ballot for a tutorial group via CORS during Tutorial Iteration 2.
Please click here to view the EG2401 bidding plan.
6. HR2002 Human Capital in Organizations
HR2002 will be open for bidding via CORS from Round 1A onwards for all Year 4 graduating students and all students for whom HR2002 is scheduled to be taken in Semester II (please refer to your recommended schedule). In Round 2B, any remaining places will be open for Year 3 students. Please click here to view the HR2002 bidding plan.
7. ULR - University Level Requirements (GE/SS/Breadth) & UE – Unrestricted Electives
Please click here for information on ULR modules that are especially on offer for Engineering students from Round 1A onwards.
Please refer to the requirements of your degree programme. Some degree programmes may require or recommend certain modules from other Faculties.
You are advised to carefully plan the use of the UE and ULR-Breadth components, which can be used simultaneously to satisfy the requirements of a number of exciting programmes such as the FoE Enhancement, Double-degree, Double-Major and Minor programmes.
Students should take note of the 60MC limit on level 1000 modules. Please also note that for the Faculty of Engineering, a minimum 65% of Programme/Major credits must be graded and factored into the CAP. The other 35% of credits may be earned through credit transfers, advanced placement, exemptions and CS-graded modules (please also see here).
8. Workload Policy
The maximum workload for freshmen (in their first semester) and students with a CAP of less than 2.0 will be 20MCs for all rounds (those who would like to read additional modules should contact their respective Departments). For all other students, the maximum workload is 23MCs for Rounds 1 and 2, and 25MCs for Round 3 onwards.
9. Appeal for ULR Modules
In the event that you are unable to get the preferred module(s) or time-slot, please try again in the subsequent bidding rounds. Students should ONLY submit their appeals for ULR modules via CORS Appeal after Round 3B ends (i.e. 15 Jan 2013, 2301hrs onwards). Please submit your appeals in the following Appeal Type:
- For Non-graduating Students: "Unable to secure module (Only available after bidding round 3B ends)"
- For Graduating Students: "Unable to secure module for graduation this semester (Only available after bidding round 3B ends)"
Appeals filed before Round 3B will not be considered. For ULR modules offered/hosted by other Faculties/Departments, please DO NOT approach these host Faculties/Departments or the module lecturers as we (Faculty of Engineering) as your home Faculty will collate all appeals and submit them to host faculty/departments for their consideration. All appeals must be filed via CORS latest by 1 Feb 2013. Please click here for more information on CORS Appeals.
10. Additional Technical Electives
We encourage students to read more than the minimum number of Technical Electives (TE) that are required for their respective degree program. These additional TEs can be declared as unrestricted electives (UE). Please note that all engineering modules should be done on a graded basis i.e., cannot be S/U’ed even when taken as UE.
