BSc in Computer Science (COSC)

In addition to the BEng in Computer Science (COMP), the Department of Computer Science and Engineering also offers a BSc in Computer Science (COSC).

COSC is not a stand-alone major. It is designed for students who wish to graduate with a double-major, i.e., students enrolled in COSC must also be enrolled in an another major. They are required to complete the requirements of both majors, and will receive a degree with two program designations upon graduation.

Students who join the program are carefully supervised in order to build and follow a study plan tailored to their specific interests and needs, that will serve as a strong platform to achieve their future career goals.

Students can NOT enroll in COSC during their first year of study. Enrollment can only be done starting after the end of their first academic year.

It has been fun studying COSC and MATH in HKUST. I am grateful that HKUST is a place full of opportunities. From research programs to Robotics Team to various competitions and hackathons, they shaped the person I am today. As long as one is open to challenges, one can grow here and have a bright future.
