Aims and Characteristics
The BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing & AI comprises the following awards:
- BSc (Hons) in Computer Science;
- BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Information Systems; and
- BSc (Hons) in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence.
Students admitted to the Scheme will complete a common Year 1 curriculum. They will select any one of the Honours degree awards and can begin studying the relevant content as early as in semester one of Year 2, or as late as in semester two of Year 2.
The BSc (Hons) in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence aims to cultivate financial technologists who can develop intelligent software applications and innovative finance solutions, by equipping them with good fundamental computing knowledge with a focus on AI, sound finance concepts and strong intellectual and practical skills, which enable them to apply computing technologies in finance and related areas. They are expected to be adaptive to the fast-changing technology, economic and social environments of today.
BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing & AI
- Common first year: students admitted to the Scheme do not need to decide on the final award in the first year of study and can select their study paths in the second year.
- Rich study pathways: the programme’s relatively few core credits give students the flexibility to take on a Minor study in other disciplines they are interested in, such as Business Administration, Financial Services, Social Science or other Engineering disciplines. They can also take additional Computing subjects to continue or specialise in one or more technical stream.
- Applied and practical: the curriculum covers up-to-date practical skills in both content and teaching methodology, e.g., iPhone technology.
- Master’s degree: students can be admitted into the Department’s Master’s programme. They can gain a Master’s degree with one extra year of study.
- Recognition and Scholarship: many departmental scholarships are available for students, recognising both their academic and non-academic performance.
BSc (Hons) in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence
- An interdisciplinary curriculum that covers software engineering, systems security, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cryptocurrency, crowdfunding and e-finance, big data and other related areas.
- Minor option: students can apply to pursue a Minor study in any discipline.
- Students with backgrounds in Arts, Science or Business can apply.
