Common Engineering



To: All First Year Common Engineering Students Admitted in Academic Year 2019-2020

​All Engineering Year 1 students admitted in academic year 2019-2020 and who have not been streamed must indicate through StudentLINK, their 5 choices (in order of preference) of the Engineering programme w​hich they wish to pursue from Year 1 Semester 2 onwards. 
Students who fail to indicate their choices would be allocated a place in any of the 5 programmes where there are vacancies. Students will not be able to make their c​hoices after the streaming exercise is over as the places may be taken up.
The last day for all students to enter their choices is 2 January 2020 (Thursday) after the Semester 1 examination results are released.
Allocation Process 


​A fixed number of places are available for the 5 Engineering programmes of Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 

​The examination results of all First Year Engineering core courses will be taken into consideration. 
- PH1011 Physics or PH1012 Physics A
- MH1810 Mathematics 1
- FE1073 An Introduction to Engineering & Practices
- HW0188 Engineering Communication I

​Allocation is based on matching the student's merit, the student's choice and the vacancies available in each programme. 


​The allocation procedure is as follows: 

​(a) You will be considered first for the allocation of your first choice. If unsuccessful, you will be considered for your second, third and fourth choices, one at a time, in the order of your preference.

​(b) If you are not allocated your first choice, it means that your performance is below than that of the lowest-ranked person allocated a place in that programme. The same applies if you are not given your second choice.
Instructions on How to Indicate Choices
You are allowed to access StudentLINK from 2 December 2019 to 2 January 2020 to indicate your choices. All 5 choices in order of preference must be entered and no duplication of choice will be allowed.
