JSSU65 is a Government Subsidised Programme under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP). For details, please visit the website HERE.

This programme was accredited by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE). To be a Member of the HKIE via the formal training or general experience routes, the candidates must have obtained an accredited honours degree or an acceptable equivalent in a recognised engineering or technological discipline. For details, please visit the HKIE website HERE.

Starting from 2018 intake, the number of subsidised places is increased to 100 under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP) while the unique JUPAS code JSSU65 is used. This programme was formerly known as Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Testing and Certification up to intake year 2016. The programme structure and content of Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Testing and Certification are exactly the same as those of Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Testing and Certification.

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 Jockey Club Campus, the OUHK is offering a 4-year full-time face-to-face BEng(Hons) in Testing and Certification (formerly known as 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 2019 are NOT eligible to apply for those programmes through non-JUPAS application. SSSDP subsidy is not applicable to non-local applicants/students of this programme.
  • Senior Year Entry
    • The requirement for Senior Year entry will be a holder of recognized Higher Diploma, Associate Degree, or equivalent, in Science or Engineering discipline. Normally, the programme duration is two to three years. Applicants will be considered for admission to different years of the study programme depending on individual academic merits and other relevant factors.
