Method of teaching and learning

Students are expected to attend a two-hour formal lecture and either a two-hour tutorial or a two-hour lab session in a typical week. Lectures deliver the contents specified in the syllabus to the students. Tutorials/labs expand their understanding of lecture materials and equip them with necessary programming skills.
In addition, students are expected to devote the required number of hours as unsupervised / private studies for reflection of lecture materials and reading and practical work. Two practical coursework assignments are used to assess their understanding of the lecture materials and their capability in solving practical problems. A written examination at the end of the module assesses their overall academic achievement.
