2 General Administration The Faculty of Engineering is the administrative host of the programme. instead of the individual Departments. registration and assessment arrangements described below are in accordance with the University policies and regulations for credit-based programmes which lead to an award of the University. the total credit transferred should not exceed 50%. 6. If the credits attained from previous study are from the PolyU. If the credits earned are from other institutions. Registration and Assessment The admission.1 Admission/Registration Students are normally admitted into the programme via the joint admission scheme (JUPAS) on a yearly basis.3 Departmental Tutors Each participating Department nominates (by the respective Head of Department) a Departmental Tutor. who looks after the welfares of the students of the Programme in his/her Department. Non-JUPAS applicants are also considered on their academic merits and other non-academic achievements. In cases where exemption is given. Credits transferred and subjects exempted normally do not carry grades. except where the Senate decides otherwise. preparation for Board-of-Examiners meetings and documentations is thus carried out by the Faculty of Engineering. Admission.2 Credit Transfer/Subject Exemption Students may be allowed to have credit transferred or be exempted on subjects from recognised previous study. General administration of admission. 6. 6.

The specific assessment regulations are set out here. 6. i. 10 .3 Subject Registration/Add-drop/Subject Withdrawal Subject registration is carried out prior to the commencement of each semester. Students may apply for withdrawal of their registration on a subject after the add/drop period if they have a genuine need to do so. having been developed within the framework of the GAR. All semesters in which the student is allowed to take zero subject enrolment will be counted towards the maximum period of registration. 6. Students are not usually allowed to drop subjects after the add/drop period. A ‘level’ in a credit-based programme indicates the intellectual demand placed upon students and may characterise each subject with respect to its recommended sequencing within that programme.e. Students progress by credit accumulation.4 Zero Subject Enrolment/ Deferment of Study A student is not allowed to have zero subject registration in any semester without prior approval from the Departments to which he/she is attached. In cases of timetable clashes. Application for deferment of study is only considered under very extraordinary circumstances. credits earned by passing individual subjects can be accumulated and counted towards the final award. No retention fee will be charged. Students may add and drop subjects during the add/drop period scheduled for each semester. students should submit application for credit transfer at the point of admission. i. Student failing to get prior approval for zero subject registration may be regarded as having withdrawn from the programme. A fee for retention of study place will be charged. 6.5 General Assessment Regulations The University’s General Assessment Regulations (GAR) shall apply to the Double Degree Programme in Business Administration and Engineering. The timetable will be drawn up based on student’s choices. Credits earned from previous study should remain valid at the time when the student applies for transfer of credits. The application should be made to the relevant programme offering department and will require the approval of both the subject lecturer and the host Department Programme Leader concerned (or an alternate academic staff authorised by the programme host Department). Deferment periods will not be counted towards the maximum period of registration. the tuition fee paid for the subject will be forfeited and the withdrawal status of the subject will be shown in the examination result notification and transcript of studies but will not be counted towards the calculation of GPA. Students will be responsible for ensuring that they complete their studies within the maximum period of registration. If approved.e.e. Year 1. i.

The assessment criteria and standards should be made explicit to students before the start of the assessment to facilitate student learning. but for practical reasons. assignments. and feedback provided should link to the criteria and standards. Timely feedback should be provided to students so that they are aware of their progress and attainment for the purpose of improvement. 6. field exercises.6 Principles of Assessment Assessment of learning and assessment for learning are both important for assuring the quality of student learning. The contribution made by each student in continuous assessment involving a group effort is determined and assessed separately. the subject lecturer will inform students of the details of the assessment methods to be used within the assessment framework as specified in this document. 6. Continuous Assessment assignments which involve group work should nevertheless include some individual components therein. Where both methods are used. the weighting of each in the overall subject grade is clearly stated. Recommendations from Board of Examiners which fall outside these Regulations shall be ratified by VP(AD) and reported to the Senate. Assessment methods and parameters of subjects are determined by the subject-offering department. Assessment of learning is to evaluate whether students have achieved the intended learning outcomes of the subjects that they have taken and have attained the overall learning outcomes of the academic programme at the end of their study at a standard appropriate to the award. Assessment will also serve as feedback to students. presentations and other forms of classroom participation. The ultimate authority in the University for the confirmation of academic decisions is the Senate. unless approval is given for it to be otherwise. 11 . projects. A list of subjects. laboratory work. At the beginning of each semester.

Appropriate methods of assessment that align with the intended learning outcomes should be designed for this purpose.7 Assessment Methods Students’ performance in a subject is assessed by continuous assessment and/or examinations. The language of assessment shall be English. The assessment methods will also enable the teacher to differentiate students’ different levels of performance within the subject.

If students have passed a subject but failed after retake. The appeal should be made to the Programme Chairman in writing. Students may refer to the Student Handbook for more details on appeal procedures. A student is referred to the Board of Examiners of the Programme with the probable consequence of being de-registered from the programme if he/she falls within one of the following categories: a. obtained an F grade. the status of “academic probation” will be lifted. The Programme Chairman will inform the student of the appeal results within 7 working days upon the receipt of all required information.0 or above at the end of the probation semester.9 Retaking Subjects Students may retake any subject for the purpose of improving their grade without having to seek approval.10 Appeal Against Examination Results A student may appeal against the decision of the Board of Examiners within 7 working days after the public announcement of the examination results.
