There are two rounds of balloting/project selection. All eligible students, regardless of CAP, will be able to participate in Round 1. Round 2 is for students who did not manage to secure a project from Round 1. Students may select up to 3 - 5 projects in each round.

All students who want to be allocated a project must rank their preferences in the respective round. Allocation of project to students and staff will be done online via the Project Administration System. Students should check the allocation results online.

If for any reason you decide to select a FYP after the above selection schedule e.g. away at NOC/SEP/IA, please liaise with the professors directly. Once the professor and you have reached a mutual agreement, please ask the professor to send the following details to Winnie, with a copy to the FYP Coordinators - A/Prof MC Chan and A/Prof H K Garg:

Student Name
Student Number
Project ID
Project Title
[Supervisor's consent]

The system will be updated accordingly.

Integrated Industrial FYP (a further 6-month extension) is only for those who have done a normal 6‐month industrial attachment and found a good project with the company. It is subjected to the approval of JAC.

A proposal with the following contents should be submitted to JAC for their consideration:
- Problem & Objectives
- Status of work from the first 6-month
- Proposed methodology
- Proposed deliverables
- Availability of resources for work
