Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Analytical and Testing Sciences

Programme Director: Dr LI, Hung Wing

The aims of the four-year full-time undergraduate programme of Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Analytical and Testing Sciences are:

  1. To provide students with a broad-based training in all major scientific disciplines for supporting their study in analytical science which is multi-disciplinary in nature;
  2. To provide students with a solid knowledge base and skills in the variety of techniques used to solve a diversity of problems in analytical and testing science;
  3. To help students to develop an analytical mind and good problem-solving skills needed to solve the diversity of problems encountered in their career as a professional analyst;
  4. To equip students with a solid knowledge base in science and analytical science to support their career developments and further education in this and related fields.

The structure of the curriculum is as follows:

I) Major Courses 55-58 units
II) Project 3-6 units
III) General Education 38 units
IV) Free Electives# 30 units
    129 units

# Students may take additional GE courses in any categories to fulfil the “Free Electives” requirement but only a maximum of 6 units will be counted towards the fulfilment of the “Free Electives” requirement.
