Some applicants who wish to be admitted into the BTech in Engineering programmes may need to be further assessed by the Admission Committee. Such applicants will be informed that they are required to sit for one or more entrance examination(s).

The BTech in Engineering Bridging Units (BEBUs) course, which is mandatory for applicants who are part-time diploma holders, and the BTech in Engineering Preparatory Units (BEPUs) course can help applicants better prepare for these examinations.


The BTech entrance examinations are designed to facilitate the assessment of an applicant’s potential to undertake undergraduate studies in an Engineering degree programme such as the BTech in Engineering programmes.

Each examination focuses on a Unit, which covers a particular subject area:

  1. Introductory Engineering Mathematics
  2. Physical Principles in Engineering
  3. Discipline Unit:
    1. Chemical Engineering
    2. Civil Engineering
    3. Electronics Engineering
    4. Mechanical Engineering

Applicants may be required to sit for entrance examination(s) for Introductory Engineering Mathematics and/or the discipline Unit based on the BTech course that they have applied to join.
