Information For Common Engineering Students

In Common Engineering (First Year):

  • MA1505 Mathematics I
  • MA1506 Mathematics II
  • CS1010E Programming Methodology (mapped to IT1005/CE2409 for students who enter Chemical/Civil/Environmental Engineering)
  • Critical Thinking & Writing module (ES1531 or equivalent)
  • Engineering Principles and Practice I & II (EG1111 & EG1112)
  • Any of the following physics, engineering, and chemistry modules for entry into the various engineering programmes:
  • PC1431 Physics IE
  • PC1432 Physics IIE
  • CN1111 Chemical Engineering Principles
  • CE1109 Statics and Mechanics of Materials
  • EG1108 Electrical Engineering* (See remark in table below)
  • MLE1101 Introductory Materials Science and Engineering
  • CM1502 General and Physical Chemistry for Engineers

The table below shows the modules that Common Engineering students with H2 Physics are required to qualify for entry application into the various Engineering programmes. For example, students with H2 Chemistry who plan to apply for Chemical Engineering should read CM1502 and CN1111, while those who plan to apply for Environmental Engineering should read CM1502 only. These two modules are to be taken in semester 2. CM1121 Organic Chemistry 1 cannot be mapped to CM1502 but is mappable to CM1501 Organic Chemistry for Engineers.

Students should carefully choose a combination of Physics, Chemistry and Engineering modules which would qualify them for entry into at least three Engineering programmes. Common Engineering students who have not read one or more of the required modules for an Engineering discipline of interest may still be considered for the various disciplines on a case by case basis.

* Students who have taken EG1111 & EG1112 will be able to map into EG1108.

Students who have decided not to enter Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering programmes will be allowed to opt out of EG1111 & EG1112, and to take other Engineering Modules listed in above table to satisfy the entry requirement of other Engineering programmes.

For students who have not decided on which Engineering programmes to enter, it is advisable to take EG1111 & EG1112 to keep their options open. EG1108 will also be last offered in semester one of Academic Year 2016/17.
