This course is for academic and professional development of students in the programs offered by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Activities may include seminars, workshops, advising and sharing sessions, interaction with faculty and teaching staff, and discussion with student peers or alumni. Graded P/PP/F. It is a required course for both COMP and COSC curriculum.
Each student is assigned to a faculty academic advisor, and followed up by a department academic counselor. In order to "pass" the course, you are required to meet with your faculty advisor and attend seminars during your undergraduate study.
Of course, you're welcomed to request meeting with your faculty academic advisor or department academic counselor whenever you feel necessary.

You are registered to COMP 4900 during your whole stay in CSE. Its grade for each term is PP (Permitted to Proceed). The P (Pass) grade will be given at the final term before you graduate.
Failure of fulfilling the above requirement in any term may lead to an 'F' grade in COMP 4900 for that term, and be permanently recorded in your transcript. Please be reminded that it is a required course and an 'F' grade will affect your graduation according to university policy.

Dr. Cindy Li () is the COMP 4900 coordinator for Spring 2016. Inquiries of COMP 4900 attendance can be sent to Miss Katherine Fung ().
Q: Is the attendance cumulative?
A: No. For example, taking one seminar is Fall semester and three other seminars in Spring semester won't fulfill the two seminar per semester requirement in Fall semester.
Q: Can ENGG 2010 seminars be double-counted in COMP 4900?
A: Yes for COMP major students, No for COSC major students (who're not officially registered to ENGG 2010).
Q: Do I need to fulfill COMP 4900 requirement when I'm on exchange?
A: If you're in 'leave' academic status, you won't register any HKUST courses including COMP 4900.
Q: What happens if I fail COMP 4900 in one semester?
A: Your COMP 4900 grade for that semester will be F, and it's shown permanently in your transcript. COMP 4900 will still be pre-enrolled to you in following semesters. If you fulfill the requirements, you will eventually get a P grade for COMP 4900 upon your graduation.
Be aware that double failure of COMP 4900 will put you in potential dismissal case.
Q: I'm busy on Wed 6pm - 7pm for other commitment, can I be exempted for the seminar attendance requirements?
You're officially registered in COMP 4900 so we would assume you're available during the time slot.
Q: I can't find my attendance of a particular seminar on COMP 4900 Canvas but I did go there and register with TA.
A: Attendance is taken by scanning the barcode in the back of your student ID card. If you change your student ID card in the middle of the semester, barcode changes too and we might not be able to recognize you. Please email Miss Katherine Fung () with your student ID number and new barcode to fix the problem.
Another reason might be you fail the reflection report. Pass requirement of reflection report can be found in reflection report template.
Q: Is there any makeup seminar near the end of the semester?
A: No. Please check seminar schedule of COMP 4900/ENGG 2010 and plan ahead.
Q: I applied to transfer to CSE in the middle of the semester, what is the COMP 4900 requirement for me?
A: Normally, the transfer, if approved, will not be effected until the following term. COMP 4900 will be registered to you in the following term. However, since you're a seasoned student, the requirement is to attend two seminars each term. That is, there is no compulsory requirement on department UG orientation.
