Resumption of Departmental-based Admission Model for the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering
For 2021 entry, applicants may apply to JS1201 for admission to the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering with an undeclared major. Students will enter a major after one year of study (current major options: BEng Architectural Engineering, BEng Civil Engineering, BSc Surveying). The top 40% of students (based on CGPA with no failed grades and completion of at least 30 credit units including College/Department required courses) have a free choice of majors after one year of study. Other students are allocated a major subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.
Joint Bachelor's Degree Programmes
CityU has established partnerships with the following world-renowned universities to offer joint Bachelor's degree programmes.
On completion of the curriculum requirements of these joint degree programmes, students can earn two Bachelor's degrees (one from CityU, and the other from the partner university), normally within 4 years. CityU students who wish to be considered for joint degree programmes must be enrolled in 4-year degree programmes in the majors concerned. For details, click here.
