# For science faculty students admitted to HKBU before 2018-19, COMP1005 is as required course. Students may consider taking COMP1007 or take one more elective course (i.e., THREE elective courses in total), in order to fulfil the requirement for Minor Programme. For science faculty students admitted to HKBU from 2018-19 onwards, COMP1005 can be counted towards the requirement for Minor Programme in Computer Science if it is not counted towards the requirement for their major programmes. Students who wish to add this course should follow the Adding a course with course instructors' approval procedure to add this course during Course Add/Drop period.

* Students are required to take at least one elective course at Level 3 or 4; Students must fulfill the prerequisites or obtain approval from the instructors before they can enroll these courses.

@ For students of the Data and Media Communication (DMC) concentration, COMP4015 can be counted towards the requirement for Minor Programme in Computer Science if it is not counted towards the requirement for their major programmes.
