Jupas Programme Code: JSSU60

JSSU60 is a Government Subsidised Programme. Its programme structure and content are exactly the same as those of the popular JUPAS programme JS9760. For details, please visit the website HERE.

The Testing and Certification industry has been identified by the HKSAR Government for strategic development. Although Testing and Certification is a new academic discipline, the OUHK has attained solid experience in providing undergraduate and postgraduate degree trainings in this area. Following the establishment of the Jubilee College, the OUHK is offering a 4-year full-time face-to-face BSc(Hons) in Testing and Certification programme starting from 2013.

Highlights of Programme

  • Unique degree programme specially designed for the Testing and Certification Industry
  • Strong Industrial support with practicum training & placement in year 2 & Year 3
  • Multidisciplinary in early stage
    • ranged from mathematics and basic sciences to metrology, instrumentation, etc.
  • Three areas of specialization in advanced stage:
    • Electrical & Electronics
    • Physical & Mechanical
    • Chemical & Biological

Entrance Requirements:

  • Year 1 Entry
    • To be eligible to apply for admission to full-time Bachelor Degree programmes with Honours, a student shall have attained in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination:Level 3 or above in Chinese and English; Level 2 or above in Mathematics , Liberal Studies and an elective subject.
      Core Subjects Minimum Level
      Elective Subject(s) Minimum Level
      Any 1 Elective Subject 2

      Note: The elective subject should preferably be a science subject: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science or Integrated Science.

    • Students who do not possess HKDSE qualification are eligible to apply for admission if they have a qualification equivalent to HKDSE. They should submit the application directly to the University under the non-JUPAS route [More]. Applicants who have already applied through the JUPAS scheme 2015 are NOT eligible to apply for those programmes through non-JUPAS application.
