Sample Study Plans

The samples serve as illustrative study plans only as there are a number of possible sequences of studies for the programme. It is also possible that the department may adjust the course offering schedule in different academic year. Students are allowed to submit their own course selection plans and are responsible for ensuring that the required pre-requisites and co-requisite of selected courses are fulfilled. Students who opt for a second major or minor are also responsible for ensuring that they have satisfied the requirements for awarding such second major or minor upon graduation.
